 Jerome Bettis - “That's the greatest feeling in the world, to actually have an opportunity to hold that Lombardi Trophy, and not hold it because somebody gave it to you.

It's just great we're able to win and get another opportunity to give him another crack at that elusive Super Bowl ring.”

Our job is to make sure everybody gets a ticket.”

 Jerome Bettis - “I think he understands he doesn't have to win the game. I think last year he'd be the first one to tell you he was of the thought I have to win the football game. He just needs to make the plays he's supposed to make, and we'll win the football game as a result of that.”
