Former LSU football defensive back Tyrann Mathieu isn’t afraid to utilize Twitter to make his voice heard.
Late last month, Mathieu took to Twitter to endorse Tigers cornerback Derek Stingley Jr for the Heisman Trophy/Jim Thorpe Award in 2021.
This week, Mathieu once again utilized Twitter to get his opinion out there.
And this time he took down a three-time NFL Pro-Bowler in the process.
Tyrann Mathieu completely owns Le’Veon Bell
Running back Le’Veon Bell, a former second-round selection by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2013 NFL Draft, said recently that he’ll never play for Andy Reid again.
“I’ll never play for Andy Reid again,” said Bell in an Instagram post (via PFT). “I’d retire first.”
Bell played for Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs last season after being released by the New York Jets. The former Pro-Bowl running back rushed for 254 yards and two touchdowns in nine games (not great numbers to say the least).
Mathieu, who has played with the Chiefs since 2019 (which means he was teammates with Bell last season), didn’t care for Bell’s comments.
“These fellas will blame everybody for their lack of success,” tweeted Mathieu. “That’s how I know I’m built different.”
Mathieu is absolutely right here. Bell has no one to blame for his lack of success with the Chiefs other than himself.
If Bell would’ve performed in the opportunities he received, perhaps he would’ve been utilized more by Reid in Kansas City.
But Bell didn’t get the job done. And instead of accepting that he couldn’t get the job done, he feels like he needs to blame Reid, a legendary NFL coach who just won a Super Bowl two years ago.
Mathieu is still as clutch as it gets when it comes to shutting down offensive players — on and off the field.
