I wouldn't call your opinion unique. Go back and read what he posted

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.
Eddie Murray's in the Baseball HOF and he's one of my favorites!

I think Jackson would be a good player to build a team around, but he might have trouble making into the Hall because he's never been on a winning team. I think he should make it though.

Yeah, here are all the QBs who have started at least one game during Jerome Bettis's tenure in the NFL, ranked by the number of starts:

76 - Kordell Stewart
32 - Tommy Maddox
25 - Ben Roethlisberger
23 - Chris Miller
20 - Mike Tomczak
9 - Jim Everett
7 - T.J. Rubley
6 - Chris Chandler
5 - Kent Graham
1 - Jim Miller

Jim Everett and Ben Roethlisberger are the only QBs Bettis ever played with who had more than one good season in the NFL. Furthermore, he only benefited from Everett for part of one season, and Roethlisberger for his last two.

6th all time. SB champ, 13 years, Great nick name, The Bus, last of the 'big backs' and went to Notre Dame. He will get into the HOF and when he does, I'll find this post, and bring it back to laugh about how silly it was to suggest he wouldn't get in.

Default Re: Bettis NOT a Hall of Famer- Here's Why

the fact that he made it to the next to last cut says the committee takes his career seriously - he will get in, just a matter of time

need to go back and watch some highlight reels. Anyone remember the days where you'd sit on the sofa and it was 3rd and short, 4th and short. Bettis lines up, everyone in the world knows Bettis is getting it. Defense is going right for him and every single Steeler fan could say with almost 100% certainty: "Oh yea, Jerome's got this" and not break a sweat. He really spoiled us in moving the chains. He was a special, special player. Only Steelers fans could appreciate his gritty style.

The Duce Staley argument is pretty much void - don't you remember him as Duce "Sweatpants" Staley. Staley had a huge hand in the emergence of Willie Parker. Staley - 3 years, 16 games with the Steelers. Hardly a usurper. Same with Amos - Zereoué rushed for 1,698 yards and seven touchdowns in his 4 season tenure. These guys were stop gap until Willie emerged. After that - we haven't had a dominant running game in 5+ seasons. Even when Mendy had 1100-1200 yards - it was in spurts.

We need a run game in the worst way. I'd take Willie Parker in the flat, and Jerome Bettis up the middle all day long.

Again, are you ten years old? You don't have to be a pom-pom waving, drooling homer to be a fan of a team.

It's called "objectivity".

I don't know that any of the three are worthy, though.
