Steelers Two-Minute Drill: Lack of penalty doesn't excuse laziness

New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers possibly could have lost Pro Bowl running back Le'Veon Bell for their playoff game due to a legal, but questionable, hit by Bengals' safety Reggie Nelson. The play didn't draw a penalty, but screams of laziness.

As Steeler Nation held their collective breath as Pro Bowl RB Le'Veon Bell squirmed on the ground in pain, the question of Reggie Nelson's hit was brought up. Although technically legal, it doesn't excuse Nelson and his lazy tactics.

In this edition of the Two-Minute Drill, editor of BTSC Neal Coolong talks about how Cincinnati Bengals' safety Nelson's hit on the Steelers RB screams of laziness, and not necessity. Whether the play is legal or not, Coolong declares the hit to be nothing more than a 'bush league' play.
