Duce is no Jerome, but please..... depth at RB isn't rocket science. Verron Haynes is the man, I just knew it when I saw him run last season. He's going to cause quite a stir this year.

No ill will towards JB, and I'll bet he is, in fact, motivating the guys. Cowher will use that as motivation more than once, I'm sure.

Still seems strange hearing him say that about a team that took him for a dream ride to end his career. I keep seeing him telling Hines, on the bench, "Get to the ONE! Get to the ONE!!1" *laughing*

Oh well.... we love him, but that kinda hurts.

I great players does noet always mean a great commentator. Take Rod Woodson, he is boring. Bettis must just be trying to make a name for himself, and wants to show that he is not bias, but he may be stupid. Or maybe he thinks that our whole team revolved around him??????????????????????????????????????????????///

Some of these posts make me wonder if we're all reading the same article. It was funny that the title is "Super repeat? Unlikely says Bettis" yet nowhere in the article does Bettis say it is unlikely that we'll repeat. Many people seemed to have missed this. In any case, I'd rather hear Bussie being honest than being a homer.

His retirement, Bettis said, and the lack of a Bus-like halfback could cause the Steelers to alter their style.

"Obviously ... not having that closer in there late in games, that is significant in shortening games," he said. "If they don't have that ability to shorten the game in terms of that physical runner in between the tackles, that's going to be a really big problem. Looking at the roster, you'd say Duce Staley ... would have to fill that role."

"If he makes the team," interjected fellow NBC analyst Cris Collinsworth.

"Exactly," concluded Bettis.

Bettis the player and teammate I wouldnt shame. But him saying Cowher is retiring, we wont repeat and things like that. I don`t respect. Not to mention the SuperBowl, don`t get me wrong here, but the week of the SB, you would have thought it was about Bettis and only Bettis. Him uncharterictically walking around the field in a three piece double breasted suit and hat, the cigar he was carrying, it seemed the whole thing was about him and he wasnt taking it seriuosly. Maybe its just me.

A few points.

I did not agree with Jerome's actions whe he responded to Cowher's retirement speculations. In my opinion, that's personal (between Cowher and the Rooney's). It's a little different than voicing your opinion on who he thinks is going to win the Super Bowl. Would I care if any other person speculated? No. But this guy just came off a Super Bowl victory. Obviously Cowher was not very pleased.

Personally, I don't care if he doesn't feel we can win the Super Bowl. Although I was sort of turned off by his comments which came off in my opinion as "you can't win a Super Bowl minus my presence". He's part of the media now, let him talk and speculate.

Then again, anybody is better than that blowhard, crackhead Michael Irvin.

I know Bettis is at a Greek God's status in this city, but that's just my two cents.

Your right. And Bettis needs to think and not just be a puppet and say things that people want to hear! Be your own man Bus. In the playoff run last year. It wasnt the Bus who stepped it up, actually he almost cost us the whole thing!

What I am saying is; that is was a pre-arranged set-piece involving Collinsworth and Bettis.

There was nothing spontaneous about it.

Jerome's whole point was based around there not being anyone on the roster that is capable of filling his role on the team, and that Staley is the nearest option.

Collinsworth then intimates that even Staley cannot fulfil this role as he spends so much time injured.

Which Jerome then 'grudgingly' agrees to.

Bottom line?

The Steelers will not be able to close out games using the running game without Bettis on the roster.

Bettis is using reverse psychology knowing that the Steelers always win when everyone says they will suck. I have already predicted that the Steelers will go 2-14 this year so, who's with me.....?
