Default Bettis NOT a Hall of Famer- Here's Why

he didnt make it in a year with no running backs. he will have a decent wait before he gets in, if he gets in,

what i am saying is he played 13 seasons and wound up with 13000 yards. 1000 yards a year is not a big number anymore with the 16 game schedule.

I consider Bettis a stat compiler not a dominant back and not a Hall of Famer.

Here are the reasons:

1- no rushing titles
2- only time he led the league in anything was in carries, once in 1997
3- only scored over 10 tds twice
4- Only an All Pro 3 times in 13 years- only for Pro Football Weekly
5- Lead back in no Super Bowl Teams
6- Last 4 seasons under 1000 yards
7- One dimensional back
8- 3 100 yard games in 15 career playoff games to include Super Bowl
9- 3.4 yards a carry in playoff games
10- Career 3.9 yards per carry in his career
11- only averages 4.0 a carry or more 4 times in 13 seasons

I like Bettis and he was a great Steeler and an NFL character but not a Hall of Famer.
