Immortals like Warren Sapp?

since he wasnt a breakaway back you can look at TDs, in 13 ywears he averages just over 6. is that immortal? those were probably all under 5 yards.
You mean his touchdowns that are more than 13 current hall of fame running backs? There, that's a stat to prove you wrong.

again, he has better stats than some hall of famers because he played longer. and it wasnt a healthy longer and it wasnt longer as a starter. again, why i say he was a stat compiler. i think until he held on too long, he probably was more of a hall of famer. the last 4 seasons hurt him big time.

and i dont want to hear he was a champion, he went along for the ride on that one.

how many of those guys you say he was better thanlost their starting jobs to scrubs like zereou and staley?

The game has changed a lot since Bettis played for us, but honestly, it isn't fair to keep him out based on the fact that 1,000 yards isn't "special" anymore (which is bullshit in my opinion, anyway.).

When Bettis played, what he did as a runningback was special. He's the 6TH greatest RB of all-time, and there's not a snowball's chance in hell he doesn't make the HOF.
6th greatest running back of all time? so he is better, based on his rushing yards than jim brown? Gale Sayers? Earl Campbell?

he has the 6th most yards.

i actually think Terrell Davis was a way better back than bettis. if he played 2 more years he would be in with about 5000 less yards.

so you're saying he's not HOF caliber because his stats aren't good enough.

And his stats are better than other HOF's because he played for so long, making him not HOF caliber.

Huh? Dude revolutionized the 3 technique DL position, and could play any position on the Line...Plus he was Dominant in his TB years..not just good DOMINANT! You game planned for Sapp.

The only stat he has is total rushing yards. That was compiled by playing so long not from having great year after great year

Do people think that Steven Jackson is going to be a HOFer? I wonder.

Hank Aaron won 1 MVP Award, 4 HR titles, 4 RBI titles, 2 Batting titles. In NFL you're talking about someone like Emmitt Smith in comparison. Bettis is more like Eddie Murray.

That's being said, I think Bettis is a HOFer. But I wonder how people view about Steven Jackson. He's going to have a career similar to Bettis and it's fun to see how many people think that he's a future HOFer here.
