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?
I watched the same show. He didn't say that Jerome wouldn't make the HOF; he said the Jerome wouldn't make the Top 10 Steelers of All Time list because of all the HOFers already on the list.

Woodson got burnt so much i used to just call him "toast". I never understood that "greatest player" tag.
I would think Bettis is a ridiculous shoe-in for the HOF.

Sorry, yeah I think you're right. I misunderstood. Still, I think Jerome makes that list, if only in the #10 spot.

I was traumatized when Rod left,I ripped down my LIGHTNING ROD poster!!!.I simply think there should be a top 20 list for the Steelers,we just have too much history,top 10 lists are for most of the other teams in the league,top 5 for some like the Lions and the Bungles!

The Bengals suck so bad that their Top 10 List actually goes from 11 to 20. That seems to defy reality, but we couldn't actually find 10 Bengals that were considered the best, even by their own low standards.

IMO, if you actually mean this, you should never discuss football again. Because clearly you have little to no knowledge of the game.

As for Bettis, I think we all became so enamored of seeing such a big man look so nimble around the line of scrimmage that we saw him as better than he actually was. He only has 2-3 what I would consider hof seasons. As much as I hate to say it I honestly don'e believe he should be in the hall.

I don't think Bettis will be first ballot HOFer... But when you really look at it, he averaged under 4 yards per carry, he only got so many yards and touchdowns by staying inthe game past his prime... Though he got lucky to start in 2004 and showed he still had some game left in him after some really lackluster seasons. I really doubt he'll be on the top 10 Steelers list.

Everyone's being a bunch of band wagon hoppers. Rod says one thing, and you all turn on him like he whiped his ass with the terrible towel.
