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

OP. You're talking about this is as if CURRENT NFL styles should influence decisions made for players who started their careers nearly 20 years ago. They shouldn't.

The game has changed a lot since Bettis played for us, but honestly, it isn't fair to keep him out based on the fact that 1,000 yards isn't "special" anymore (which is bullshit in my opinion, anyway.).

When Bettis played, what he did as a runningback was special. He's the 6TH greatest RB of all-time, and there's not a snowball's chance in hell he doesn't make the HOF.
