Re: Bettis in the Hall of Fame?
This may warrant a new thread, but it got me thinking...
That was a magical season. Something from almost every game stands out.
Knowing that the season ended with The Steelers in #36’s home town of Detroit, and knowing the Super Bowl was in the Motor City that year, I think we all had dreams of glory going into that season. What if…
Some things I remember:
Week 1 – Titans W 34-7 Willie Parker for 161 yards in NFL debut.
Week 6 – Jaguars L (OT) 23-17 One Word … Tommy Maddox
Week 12 Colts L 26-7 M. Harrison torches Ike for 80 yards on first play
Week 13 Bengals L 38-31 T.J. and the Towel Stomp
Week 14 Bears W 21-9 Bettis with 101 yds, 6 for TD directly over Urlacher
Week 15 Vikings W 18-3 The safety reminded me of IX (our first)
Week 16 Browns W 41-0
Week 17 Detroit W 35-21 Maybe Bettis’ last game in home town. Nice story.
AFC WC Bengals W 31-17 Kimo vs. Palmer. Bummer, but Kitna did well.
AFC Div Colts W 21-18 The Tackle, The stabbed Harper, Vaderjagt miss
AFC Conf Broncos W 34-17 Mighty Champ Bailey beat in the corner.
We all know the next game.
Bettis in the HoF, oh yeah. I believe his stats warrant it, but PR would be great too.
