Absolutely made the right decision. You couldnt write a better story book ending to his career. Last game he plays is a super bowl victory in his home town.

My heart though wishes he was still around. Im gonna miss that #36 in the black n gold on gameday.

I get choked up everytime I think of a Busless Steelers lineup, but I am glad that he was able to retire at the top of the heap.... After last season, he has nothing else to prove, and we, as fans, must be thankful that he chose to play rather than retiring after last season..... There will be a void on the team - - not on the playing field, but in the locker room and in the players' hearts.... Jerome is not the only reason that we won last year, but he was a catalyst to a winning team..... The guys had that extra incentive to go out there and play their hearts out.... And they did it - - nominally, for the Bus - - - but it was really for the team.... And it wasn't one or two people who won the trophy - - it was the team!!!!

Jerome, you will be missed..... But, thank you for everything that you have done in your very successful career..... Best wishes and good luck in your future endeavors...... You will always be a winner........ Mahalo!!!!!

Why should he have stayed?

He went out a Champion,how many people can say that?He assured himself no major injuries through football,assured he will be able to walk when he is older,and has a job that will pay him more than he made in football.

Congrats to the 2009 Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins

The Bus has always been a class act, and his story couldn't be any sweeter. It's gonna suck not seeing him wear the Black and Gold on the field, but we're lucky that we can tune in on Sunday nights and see him on tv. I'm looking forward to that, because I think he'll do an excellent job. He has a lot of respect from the legion of fans and everyone involved with the NFL.

Exclamation Re: Jerome Bettis

First of all, I love the Steelers and only want the best for our team, but I also want what is best for our players future. Did anyone see the special they had on CBS I think when they showed the bus at his home trying to get down his stairs? It was not a pretty sight for anyone to see. I will miss him and his leadership for our team but I am so happy for him and hope that things will get better for they guy now..May God Bless You All
