Jerome Bettis, the 10th leading rusher in NFL history, will start the season on the Pittsburgh Steelers' bench following his surprise demotion Wednesday by coach Bill Cowher.
Cowher, unhappy not only with his team's play in the preseason but also with how it is practicing, also benched tight end Mark Bruener and said cornerback Deshea Townsend will play more with the starting defense.
Amos Zereoue, who replaced an injured Bettis at the end of each of the last two seasons, will start the Sept. 7 opener against Baltimore. Jay Riemersma, signed away from the Bills during the offseason, replaces Bruener and either Chad Scott or Dewayne Washington will take off some series to accommodate Townsend's increased playing time.

Pittsburgh has and i think will always been known for there great running attack. And this season even though there wont be a main starting back there will be 2 great backs and this could be a tough team to stop.
