Default Whats the chances of the Bus returning?

Percentages!

I would like to think its 60% he will, and 40% he won`t.
If he had already made up his mind, he would have say so. He is now kinda of hinting either way. Even Cowher said" When the time come" I think he knows his role. He is happy to be wanted and to know that he has a role. He knows Willie parker is featured. He also knows Staley is done here, I would think anyway. So I think he fills more needed now than he did last year.

Hmm... I think it depends how far we go into the playoffs this season. He wants a championship bad. I think if we don't get it this year and he feels we have a legimate shot next year he may come back. But right now I think it's 50% - 50%.

In Madden he retired after this season, so I'm gonna say 49% he will. Madden doesn't know anything, but I put it just below half.

If we get close to the Superbowl this year... But lose in maybe in the AFC Championship, I think he'll come back for one more year, seeing as how we were close.

But if we win the Superbowl, or lose early in the playoffs, I don't think he'll come back.

I dont think he's made up his mind yet either, but even if he did he wouldnt say anything to anyone just yet about it..he wants the focus to be on the team and preparing for the playoffs.

Right now I'd say its dead even 50-50...maybe 48-51 that he will retire. It took him a long time to decide to come back after last year.

I would have to say 100 percent he's not coming back if we win the Super Bowl.. If we don't.. it's over 50 percent chance he'll make 1 more shot at it.. A Super Bowl is all he's wishing for so he'll probably be basing it all on the chances of what another year would bring him.. Depending on who all we lose.. he may find our chances slim for a repeat next year.. We have such a long road ahead though.. Gotta go through Indy if we beat Cincy.. I was hoping for NE over indy so soon.. regardless I would love to see Bettis back again.. It'll be wierd not seeing him on the field anymore.. I'm not looking forward to it that's for sure..

Slim to none. He wants to spend more time with his baby.

i dont know that i want him back next year after seeing the pain he goes through each monday morning. but he knows his body better than i do. but i definitely would not like to see him walking around in crutches when he turns into a commentator.

do it for the bus this year!!

I think he's still undecided. but honestly, I would be really surprised to see him back next season. I think he's putting everything he has into right now and this is it.
