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

I disagree totally. he lost his starting position to players like Duce Staley, Lawrence Phillips, Amoz Zereou and Wllie Parker.

He was more of a hall of famer before he hung around for the last 4 seasons of his career.

He has a lot of rushing yards but is that a proponent of greatness or playing a long time.

Curtis Martin did it in 11 seasons.

You are equating 1000 yards a year as a big deal, it isnt anymore.

We all like Bettis, he is VERY recognizable BUT he is not immortal

What special thing has he done?

Not the best brusing back of all time...see Earl Campbell or John Riggins.

Many players played under 10 years and compiled better stats per season...see sayers, brown and Campbell.
