The Bus now has a little girl to look forward to raising. He also just got married a few months back and his priorities in life are now a little different. His time constaints now with his new position as an analyst won't interfere as much with his family time as continuing his football career would have continued to do. Jerome is all about family - very devoted and loving father and husband.

I don't believe for one minute that Cowher would have cut him had he returned this season. He was one of the team leaders and his role on the team changed over the last couple of years and especially with the emergence of Willie Parker. He may have "only" had 368 yards last season, but I think his 35 TD's in the regular season over the last 4 year were far more valuable to the team than the number of yards he gained on the ground. Jerome also picked up a lot of key first downs for us last season which was part of his new role on the offensive unit.
Well everyone has an opinion I guess.

It will be interesting to watch this team continue to evolve into more of a quick strike unit - they dont have the personnel to pound it between the tackles anymore - not unless Willie loses the starters job.

What I wouldnt rule out is Ben passing more and for less ypa - with Willie in the backfield you have to feel the swing pass and screen will be a regular fall back.
