Yeah, Joique Bell was the guy who jumped up onto the Ford Field ledge and got crowd members to wave their arms in unison with him after he scored one of his two touchdowns Sunday. Most notable, however, was that both scores came after touchdowns were taken away from Reggie Bush when they were reviewed.
Don't feel badly for Bell, who still scored three times in Detroit's 34-24 victory over the Vikings.
“I’d like to throw out a big shoutout to the big homie Reggie Bush for donating to the Joique Bell touchdown foundation," according to the Detroit News.
Bell was an undefeated free agent from Wayne State who gained 899 yards during his rookie season in 2012. He knows better than th get too secure about his status:
"I have to execute on every opportunity that I get, regardless of if it’s a lot or a little,” Bell told the News. “If it’s five plays, execute. If it’s one play, execute. It’s not about how many opportunities that you get. It’s about what you do with the opportunities that you do get. That’s one thing that I’ve lived by to this point, and it got me this far.”
And about working the crowd, he said: “I was hoping that the crowd caught onto it, and they did. It was fun. I’m a silly guy. I had to think of something that could get the crowd into it, and that’s the first thing that I thought of.”
It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt.
