Which makes my point more valid. Your dominance since the 70's has been near un-rivaled. But, until then, the Pittsburgh Steelers were a horrible franchise, with one playoff game until the 70's.


Did the bus average 100 yards+ a game? Nope. Did Jim Brown? Yes
Jerome Bettis: 3479 carries for 13,662 yards for a 3.9 average with 91 Touchdowns in 192 career games
Jim Brown: 2359 carries for 12, 312 yards for a 5.2 average with 106 Touchdowns in 118 career games.
Jerome needed 74 more games to rush for 1350 more yards. If Jim Brown ran for 104 yards a game in his fictional 10th season, he winds up with 1456 yards. So, if we assume he plays 3 more seasons at the same clip, he is the all time rushing leader.
Man Jim Brown was pretty sick. We got enough to pick on the Browns for, let's not hit Jim Brown. Dude was one of the hardest workers the NFL has ever seen, let's stick to mocking them for no Lombardis, poor management, Tim Couch, etc

Brown was the first truly "big" back to play RB, not FB. He was what? 230? The difference is that Bettis was about 260 (listed) and a lot of people believe he played somewhere between 280 and 300 lbs.

The fact is, a guy that big should not have been able to last anywhere near as long as he did at that position. Jim Brown was the best big back to ever play, but Bettis will probably be the biggest back to ever play as long and as well. When you see these big guys come into the league, dudes at 260+, they just cannot carry the load, even splitting time, and are usually out of the league in a year or two. I'm not sure we'll ever see a guy as freakishly large as Bettis play as long and effectively ever again.
