Why would you waste your life like that? Just throw Collinsworth out of the 13th story window!

Why a 13-story building..... throw him down half-a-flight of stairs, and he'd break his pencil-neck!!!!!

I agree with those who say it'd bring a great deal of leadership back to the team to have him back, and I'd sure love to see him on the sidelines.

I LOVED Bus as our back, and I don't think he's that great at the job he has now. However, I'm not so sure sure he'd want to leave his cushy job for the grind and aggravation of coaching.

"IF" , as has been reported, that Bettis is an investor in the slots/casino to be built in Pixburgh, wouldn't this preclude him from becoming a coach in the NFL (i.e. - the gambling-connection? )

That's a good question. I'm not sure how it works when it comes to AC's.

I sincerely doubt the League wants, or would-allow, a coach, with sensitive knowledge about player-injuries, ALSO having the key to his own casino, and intimate friends in the betting world:
gambling is probably the only reason that Hornung & Karras aren't in Canton today, and as-long as it took for Bettis to win a Super Bowl, he probably wouldn't risk his eventual induction into the Hall-of-Fame.

Your guess is as good as mine but that's what I would think.....
