Cowher would be an idiot to let Bettis have 30 carries. But it's been his M.O to get caught up in sideshows, so one can only hope....
I have an idea- why not try an on-sides kick to start the game off?
Portis is a good all-situation RB - Bettis isnt.
Despite the feel good factor about Jerome being in his home town - logic says he may get a couple of 2Yd TD's but he wont be running for anywhere near 100yards.
I was never as confident as alot of these Steeler fans when we played the Eagles last year.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
