PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) — With the Steelers’ running game taking a hit after Le’Veon Bell’s injury, KDKA’s Bob Pompeani chatted with retired Steelers great Jerome Bettis and got his take on their ground attack.

Bettis said that the recently-acquired Felix Jones brings speed, play-making ability, and a veteran presence to the Steelers’ backfield corps.

He’s disappointed that we’ll have to wait to see what rookie Le’Veon Bell is capable of, but in the meantime, he still believes in Jonathan Dwyer enough to support the idea of giving Dwyer one more chance to grab the starting job.

He explained that he has never been a believer in running back by committee and prefers riding one guy.

He told Bob that his body is thanking him now for being careful with it during his playing days.

He thinks that it may take the Steelers a little while to come around this year, hurting their overall record, but feels that they should be as good as any team in the NFL by season’s end.
