I don't see why people think Bettis will wear down...last year started like 8 games and was fine! One more year at this stage probably won't bother him...especially if he only comes in to do short yardage/goaline carries.
Actually even he has admitted he can't do what he has done in the past and that he gets tired fairly quickly. That is probably one of the reasons he had contemplated retirement over the offseason. In all fairness to FWP though, his stats wouldn't be all that great if FWP has kept his balance enough to get into the endzone. Like was mentioned before, Jerome won't get many carries because FWP usually gets it done himself before they get inside the 10.
