Talking Point: Le’Veon Bell apologizes to Steelers fans, does it matter?
When Pittsburgh Steelers fans think about the “Killer B” era, it all revolves around the three players who made the offense click.
Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, and Le’Veon Bell
Despite the massive amount of talent on the offensive side of the ball, the “Killer Bs” never produced anything other than a playoff berth. They never reached even reached a Super Bowl, and would be considered a tremendous flop for the black-and-gold fan base.
The end of this era was possibly even uglier than most would ever have imagined. Antonio Brown’s departure was ugly, and so was Le’Veon Bell’s as he sat out an entire year before he left for the New York Jets.
Both Brown and Bell’s careers are over, and while Brown has said he wants to retire a Steeler, Bell hasn’t said much publicly about the Steelers outside of the fact he feels he can still play and would love to get a few carries in a preseason game.
Well, Bell took to SnapChat and answered a fan question about how he never apologized about how he left the Steelers. He did apologize, and even called the Steelers fan base the “best fans there is” at the same time.
Check out the video below:

While this certainly will make Steelers fans all warm and fuzzy inside, it begs the question: Does it even matter?
