Default Rod Woodson Doesn't Like Jerome Bettis?

I was just watching NFL Network and they were discussing the Top 10 Steelers show that's on this Friday. Rod Woodson said he doesn't think that Jerome Bettis will get into the Hall of Fame, but Hines Ward will.

I was wondering why he would say that. I always figured Bettis was a shoe-in with his production, plus what he meant to the team and the fan base. Is there some bad blood between Ron and Jerome? Or between Jerome and the league or the team? I know Bettis criticized the Steelers play a bit last year, but I mean, come on. It was well deserved. The team was a mess for a good chunk of 2009. Is there something else I don't know about here?

The only reason I can think of is there are a crapton of HOF-worthy running backs eligible to go in around the same time as the Bus, so he might get the shaft for guys like Curtis Martin, Marshall Faulk, etc....personally, I dont think that should really matter though.

That's because he *was* the best until Barry Sanders juked him out of his jockstrap.

He never was the same after that.

He only played with Jerome for 1 year.....Then he was on the Raven's for 4 years.......So I bet he has some bad feelings for the big guy........Wouldnt you if you had to tackle him?.......

I know letting him go had a little to do with money, but didn't he get pissed when they asked him to move to safety?

He wasn't even a safety until his career was half over! He was the best corner and return guy in the game! Sanders can kiss my azz because Rod would at least hit you...
