Bettis held out of training camp looking for a new contact before the 1995 season began which did not endear him to Rams management and head coach Rich Brooks.
Bettis' fall in production in 1995 was because of reduced playing time and a bum foot, the Rams didn't ask him to play fullback full time until after the 1995 season was over.
yes, Rich Brooks was an idiot and so was Bam Morris for getting busted with that much weed and cocaine in a traffic stop. but it's funny how life works sometimes, it took all of those events for Bettis to get traded to Pittsburgh and I'm glad because he will always be one of my all-time favorite Pittsburgh Steelers.
