Zero. He will retire, and he deserves his peace and his place in Canton. 2 years ago, most of the same people clamoring for his return in 2006 were calling for his head.

The Super Bowl will be his decision factor!!! He will certainly be in Canton 5 years after he retires!!!!

The Bus will not return. There are NO signs that signal otherwise. I'm thankful for all the great years and memories that he has given us, and I'm anxiously awaiting his finale in Detroit. Three more TD's that day in Feb.? Bring it.

Fox Sport ran a feature on the Bus a few weeks back titled "Bettis' Bruises."
http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/5159568
After watching that video, and watching this week's send off, I don't think anyone would expect to see him next year.

Here we go.

In the post game press conference he didn't sound too convinced he would retire. I heard him say something like...

If I decide there is still some football left... I gotta get it out.

It may only be wishful thinking but I think he will be back.

this same story was ran on jerome in the 2001 season where they sat him down and showed him current footage of earl campbell and all the physical problems he was going through. you could tell bettis was disturbed and moved. fast forward 4 years and the bus is still grinding it out. but yeah, hes probably thinking about his children and family this time and alot of good things wait for him beyond football

I know we would all love to see him stay, I dont feel 100% that he is retiring. Even though I dont want him to it is probably a good time for him. Whatever the decision....Great JOB>>>

I think he knows the Steeles situtation also, we may be down to just Willie Parker. Staley should be gone. haynes is a free agent. We could draft or pick up somebody, but as of right now there is plenty of room for the Bus, on our roster in 2006
