    Good f*cking riddance. That fat fraud came up small throughout his whole career in big games, now his fat ass gets carried to one on the shoulders of the refs. I hope I never see his ugly face again.

    The great thing about it is this basically kills their '06 season, or at least any chance of repeating. I hope they come to Foxboro in the playoffs next year, we are taking the title back the RIGHT way - by beating the champ!

    I heard this story that he is actually from DETROIT, site of Super Bowl 40.

    Did anyone else hear this?





    I can't stand the guy.

    I just don't get the hype around him. He played a long time and has big totals and a 3.9 yards per carry for his career. Antowain Smith has the same average.

    .....shocker, the bus stops here...Detroit, right? I hear he comes from there? Can this be verified?

    If I never see that fat phuck, again, I will be happy.

    I believe that was a forgone conclusion win or lose.

    I'm sorry to see him go. He was a fat, slow target that the Pats' owned in big games.

    Hah, if you think you won't see him again, think again, he will probably be with some networks analyzing games and whatnot.

    I am happy he ended his career in a fairytale finish, but other than that... thank God his 15 minutes or fame is over.

    Over? OVER? Ha! He'll get voted in the HOF as soon as he's eligible. What a joke.

    ----------well congrats NFL, you jobbed the seahawks into getting the story that you wanted. The last two weeks has been nothing but "the bus coming home one last time for a ring",,,the seahawks never got anything from the NFL, why should it have stopped tonight.

    I was going to say something but you just took the words right out of my mouth. I'll never get what some people see in that scum.

    I'm glad to see that the Super Bowl hasn't affected our usual ability no to able to give props to any player but a patriot.

    He was a good RB who had tremendous longevity. Is there more to say than that?

    He is also wildly overrated. We are talking about a guy who has only averaged 4 yards a carry 4 times in 13 years and he is considered a first ballot HOF. The press openly admits they love him and openly root for him because he loves them.

    Smart move for him- it's been over for a while. If he hadn't retired he would have been cut next year.

    I bet we don't see this in the hi-lites:

    Week 2 Post Season
    Pittsburgh Steelers at 1:20 PIT 21 IND 18
    1st and 2 at IND 2 (1:20) J.Bettis up the middle to IND 4 for -2 yards FUMBLES (G.Brackett), RECOVERED by IND-N.Harper at IND 7. N.Harper to IND 42 for 35 yards. :D

    What guys are you talking about?

    Is this a Steeler troll? Wondering when you guys were going to start coming here gloating. Only there is nothing to really gloat about , now is there?

    And do you want to talk about class. How about the steeeler fans booing Brady for flipping a coin. How about your coach celebrating on the sideline with 3:30 left in the game.

    That's real class.

    Props to Alexander... almost cracked 100 yards against the vaunted Steeler D. Played with heart and got some tough yards.

    :D

    Wasn't there a guy from Detroit who was playing in this game? :confused:

    I was not exptecting to be the lone dissenting opinion here, but I guess I am. I like Jerome and am happy he won. As another adult who knows what it is like to suffer from severe asthma as a child and to spend nights in the hospital in an oxygen tent with an IV in your arm struggling for every breath, I could not be happier for him!

    When Tedy had his stroke last year, Jerome was very vocal in coming out and wishing Tedy well and saying that the NFL would be a worse place without him. He is a classy man and I wish him well. My bet is that he will end up on NFL Total Access next year......Rod Woodson drives me nuts!

    I understand your emotional ties to The Bus. I never disliked him as a player on a person.

    But, facts are facts. His football days are over and his real football playing days have been over for a while. It was time to retire and if he would have come back, he probably would have been cut.

    I'm glad that he saw this and made the decission himself.

    Aw, once the anger from this hideous game wears off, I'll go back to feeling as I normally do about Jerome...he seems like a nice guy and he was once a good player. I, too, suffer from asthma, though not as severely as Jerome. But when you put together the way the game was won coupled with the Bettis-focus all week long, it just leaves a very bitter taste in some people's mouths.

    but if he'd been OUR fat f#ck...

    the man gained a lot of yards, more than john riggins, tony dorsett, eddie george, marcus allen, franco harris, thurman thomas.
    no bar fights, no stabbed by wife, no "my boyz killed him, i didn't", no dope, no tax problems.
    he'd have looked good in a patriot uniform with that fat gut and that butt.
    you know, it's like rodney harrison: dirty player, unneccesary hits, talking trash all the time, real a$$h0le. yeah. but he's OUR a$$h0le, understand.
    ol' jerome would have looked pretty good in a patriot uniform.
