You are blinded by his great career from the past, the fact is this year he has been a non-factor, unless you call the statline below something to fear. I respect what he has done in the NFL, but the fact is that the media is building him up strictly because the game is in his home town. No body will watch the bus run by them anymore he is probably the slowest guy on the field these days besides the linemen


2005-06 Pittsburgh 12 games 110 attempts 368 yds.

Even if his best days are behind him, the fact he's still out there and playing his last game in SuperBowl is inspirational. He has had a great career and we'll all remember him when we get old. And I wouldn't want to the guy between him and the goal line this Sunday. There is always time to debate his career numbers when his HOF eligibility rolls around. So I don't know why some writers feel the need to take shots at him this week.

PS - I think it could be argued that he has the best nickname of his NFL generation.

In the age of free agency, big,,i mean BIG money,,in sports, most especially football, I find it interesting that one of the FEW players who took a huge paycut, to remain with his team while other backs were being brought in, ie: Willie Parke, Veron Haynes...his name: Jerome Bettis. He may have only rushed for 1500 yards in ONE season, but it's his consistency as a TEAM player, yes, a team! Not One name on the Steeler bench stands out, because they are all dynamic in their own right. The Bus, right now, is glorious, returning to his home town to play the big game, and the attention and fanfare is not only well deserved, but overdue.

Franco5, I'm from Bremerton alright, born and rainsed and still living there today. I can name all three porn stores in Bremerton can you? Just giving my props to the man who is the 6th all time rushing leader. And don't question my 12th Man status. I've been rooting for the Hawks before you were born. Stuck with the Hawks thick and thin. Yeah, I loved seeing Lofa head-on with Goings, but Lofa came out with a concussion and Goings ain't Bettis. I don't see anything wrong with showing respect for the enemy.
Thanks for serving in the Army. Yeah.

I'm a huge bus fan. Have his jersey signed. My only beef.......the "Bus coming home story" needs to die down just a little bit. If your in Pittsburgh, not only do you have ESPN and FOX pounding the story, but you also have the non-stop local media coverage. If you go by the local media here in Pittsburgh, you would think it's Jerome Bettis vs Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl 40.

I understand the media needs a story to jump on and go with, but it's starting to get a little overbearing. We have two teams playing in the Super Bowl. There aren't any other stories these people can ride? I'm not stating they should stop all coverage of the "JB coming home" story, but just give it a rest to a degree. I'm probably in the minority of Steeler fans that feel this way, but my head is about to explode.

Rust-Buster don't sweat Franco. It's just "steelermaniac" come back to haunt us and be a dumbass to everyone. You can tell hes an ******* just by where it says he is from. There is no Bendover, PA I would know I was born n raised in Harrisburg da capital and it makes my Black n Gold blood boil that someone would be so disrespectful as to do some kind of shit like that. Wit possibly da exception of "seahawkfan" all you hawks fan have argued your case for your team but been respectful. So don't sweat one dipshit in da forum just here to piss everyone off he makes you hawks fans look bad in da fact that he disrespectin not only us Steelers fans but also you true hawks fans. 1ne.

BuFu
