10 Pro Bowls.

Two time Bert Bell winner.
Heisman Trophy.

Better numbers in less time, Barry by a country mile!

The only thing he didn't achieve was a Super Bowl.

Bettis was the best "big back" of all time - Sanders was arguably the best back ever, period. Sanders.

I love Bettis. Sanders never impressed me during playoffs, should check out his stats there. He season play was great and awesome at times. But Bettis played with heart soul and pride each game. Sanders did not.

Bettis played on a team that was committed to winning. Imagine how many yards Sanders would have had if he played for a good team. Simply awesome.

Same goes for Payton - although he went out playing on a good team, the better part of his career was spent playing on terrible teams as well.

Bettis was a great player.....Great team player
But never had the moves (not even close) to sanders....
If Sanders did not retire early he may have been the best ever
