PITTS­BURGH — Le’Veon Bell chose his words just as the Pro Bowl run­ning back of­ten chooses which hole to run through.

Care­fully. Very care­fully.

Asked if he had any ad­vice for Pitts­burgh Steel­ers of­fen­sive co-or­di­na­tor Todd Ha­ley on how to get the ball in the end zone more of­ten for a unit that’s done lit­tle to live up to its own sky-high ex­pec­ta­tions, Bell faked one way and went an­other.

“I know what ya’ll want me to say,” Bell said. “Ya’ll want me to say, ‘Get me the ball.’ Look, I un­der­stand. I just want to go out and get the ‘W.’”

So do the other lu­mi­nar­ies on Pitts­burgh’s US$92-mil­lion of­fence. At the mo­ment, it’s sim­ply not hap­pen­ing for the Steel­ers (3-2), who play at un­beaten Kansas City (5-0) on Sun­day try­ing to find some­thing re­sem­bling con­sis­tency and co­he­sion.
