ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the recent developments related to the football team Pittsburgh Steelers. Football player Jerome Bettis has not gotten many carries in the 2005 season--84 for 287 yards--so he's fresh, and the team should consider using him more. Football player Willie Patter will remain the starter because of his big-play ability, but Bettis is effective this time of year because he maintains leverage on sloppy fields and takes advantage of his battering-ram style. Pro Bowl football player Aim Faneca is effective because he rarely gets knocked off his feet on running plays.
