Re: No HOF for Bettis.
I didn't expect him to get in on the first ballot because he is EXTREMELY underrated by anybody who's not a Steeler fan. It doesn't matter that only 5 people to play the game since it's beginning have more yards then him, he wasn't flashy enough for fans of other teams to have respect for him. He will get in, but it will take a few tries. Much like Hines, he has more receptions then Swann and Stallworth combined.
As for Sapp, he was the beneficiary of an announcer's spot. For some reason every player and coach "gets better" once they start announcing.
