    Wow, what a terrible year for the entire Steelers Super Bowl team. Think about it:

    Ben Roethlisberger: motorcycle accident, appendectomy, concussion
    Hines Ward: Hamstring injury, knee injury
    Troy Polamalu: various injuries
    Joey Porter: injured, missed a couple games
    Ricardo Colclough: terrible fumblitis, then season ending injury
    Veron Haynes: season ending injury
    Willie Parker: after great performances on the road in the playoffs last year, he's done nothing on the road this year
    Ike Taylor: started to be considered a shutdown corner last year, has gotten burned repeatedly this year
    Antwaan Randle El: Super Bowl team last year, Redskins this year
    Chris Hope: Super Bowl team last year, Titans this year
    Jerome Bettis: lost his dad

    RIP Papa Bus, and may his memory be eternal.
    Who Ride?! WE RIDE!!! Long live the Boot!!!

They recently did an interview with Johnnie and Gladys Bettis and they still said they never miss a Steelers game on TV so far this year. Just a very very sad sad story and a huge huge loss to the great Steelers family. Ill be at the game Sunday against Tampa Bay and Im going to assume they will do a moment of silence for Jerome's father. I wouldnt expect anything less from the most classy organization in the National Football League.
