The article presents information on developments related to football in the U.S. in the run up to Super Bowl 40. Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers can be as tough against the run as any team, the Seattle Seahawks will be able to run the ball in Super Bowl 40. A Steelers victory might be the perfect excuse for Jerome Bettis to walk away, but he doesn't need to walk when he can run the way he can. Bettis is a great role player who can continue to help the Steelers win. Antwaan Randle El will have at least one big return against the Seahawks.
