Re: Bettis in the Hall of Fame?
I believe Bettis will get in, however I think it's highly unlikely to happen on the first ballot. His career accomplishments will warrant him getting in, and to me if you're a Hall of Famer then you're a Hall of Famer, but just knowing the way that system works it probably will not happen this year. Two, three, maybe four years down the road, count him in.
"The nature of a man who has a competitive spirit will be to inevitably live a life which involves that man overcoming obstacles. But the sport of football is too physically and emotionally difficult to play simply for money or success. Personally, I have been inspired by God."
