Actually, I'm glad you brought Max Strong up...We also have a Fullback, and he never gets any credit. His name is Dan Kreider. He's probably Strong's match in any category, but we just ask him to block. And he's pretty good at his job.

You all will probably laugh to at the mention of him in the same thread, but we in Seattle have a tremendous affinity for Mack Strong. While I am in no way comparing him to Bettis in terms of what he has accomplished in the NFL, we love him because he's been here forever, he's always been a stand up guy, and he works his butt off blocking for the likes of Alexander. And he has never gotten any attention outside of the Puget Sound for this until he made the Pro Bowl this year, his 13th season.

Lame writers just try to tear down people like Bettis because they think it makes them look like they know more than the rest of us. But anybody with half a brain knows better.
Damn a hawkfan with a brain, that was very well put! Alot of crap has been posted bout the BUS by hawk fans but at least there are a few who understand what we are talking bout.

Now Zorn to largent"However, unlike the Seahawks who are getting better, Bettis is just getting older." Some things get better with age!!

This is what the same writer had to say about Shaun Alexander after his concussion, so at least he is an equal opportunity basher

Shaun Alexander is soft. Yeah I said and what are you
going to do about it? I understand a concussion is a
serious issue, but if you are well enough to jump around
on the sidelines like a little girl, you are well enough
to take your soft ass back into the game. It is easy to
run for 1800 yards and 28 TDs against the easiest schedule
in the NFL, but if you are a primetime performer you are
suppose to shine in thebiggest games and he came up small.
There is a reason why he hasn't signed a long term deal it is
because obviously someone doesn't thinkwhen push comes to
shove he can be depended on and if you think I am just
running off at the mouth, just do some research and you will
findout that his team and his coaching staff thinks he is
soft. The real MVP is Mack Strong.

Bus Stop 1-30-06

Lets just stop all this nonsense of Jerome Bettis
being a Top 5 back of all time. I know Bettis is
a feel good story of the Super Bowl, but the fact
of the matter is that a feel good story is all it
is. Bettis has been a very good back for a lot of
years, but only a dominant back for a few. Specifically
for the last 3 years he has been nothing more than
a short yardage back. He has been replaced in the
starting lineup by the likes of Amos Zeroe, Deuce
Staley and ?Fast? Willie Parker, not exactly the holy
grail of running backs. Bettis has only rushed for
over 1500 yards once (which is the true barometer of
a great back) and even though he is a big back, he
has only had over 10 TDs in 2 seasons. Shaun Alexander
has almost as many career TDs than Bettis in half the
time. I like Bettis, his nickname is top 5 of all time,
but the only reason we are even discussing him being
one of the top 5 rushers of all time is because the
only other Super Bowl storyline is can anyone guess
how far Matt Hasselbeck's receding hairline goes back.
This guy is simply nuts.

Jerome Bettis sits at #5 on the all-time rushing yardage list (13,662 yards), #8 on the all-time rushing TD's list with 91 (tied with Franco Harris). Walter Payton, Emmitt Smith and Barry Sanders are the only two back in the history of the NFL that sit above him on both lists.

Anyone looking to disparage Jerome Bettis does so out of jealousy or stupidity. This guy has been solid and continues to rumble. He'll crack the goal line at least once on Sunday. That's an easy bet...

what is with all this bettis talk, yeah he has had a good career. the fact is that he is just situational runningback now. in the steelers 3 playoff games he has only 137 yards. sure he has 3 TDs, but that is because he is their goal line option, he doesn't even start for the steelers anymore, except for next sunday because it is in his home town. Shaun Alexander had 132 yds. and 2TDs in one playoff game. he is the one who is going to shine on Sunday not bettis. "The Bus" will be lucky to get 50 yds. and and a goal line touchdown against one of the best rush defenses in the NFL.

SO STOP MAKING A BIG DEAL ABOUT HIM, HE'S BASICALLY A NON-FACTOR IN THE STEELERS WINS. BIG BEN HAS BEEN WINNING THE GAMES FOR THE STEELERS NOT BETTIS

Dumbest post so far this year. Why dont you go read the posts in this thread to get a clearer look. Because from your post, it sounds like you didnt watch the Indy game. And you didnt bother to see how the steeler teammates honored him by wearing his college jersey coming into Detriot. Bettis is more then the best big back of all time, he is an all pro human being and an asset the NFL will lose as a player and hopefully gain as an analyst...

Bettis has always been a back to be feared. Those who don't respect him, will read his name on the back of his jersey as he runs over them
