Re: No HOF for Bettis.
I dont see Bettis as a shoe in Hall of Famer. I think he was a great back but I dont think of him as one of the best backs of all time. He was more of a stat compiler who over time compiled nice stats. His crowning moment was what? the fumble against the Colts? Plus the end of the career he kind of hung on and wasnt much of a factor.
I think he will get in some day but dont be surprised if its a 7-10 year wait. Just look at Cris Carter.
I think Terrell davis was a better back, Martin for sure, Sanders, Emmit, Ricky Watters were the top backs in his era. All are better than him so that hurts him.
