    Dawson & Butler make the Hall of Fame..Bettis left out

    The Pittsburgh Steelers Center that revolutionized the position will be joining Steeler great Jack Butler in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in the class of 2012.

    Dawson made seven Pro Bowls as the Steelers' center, that rare snapper who also could block defensive players one on one. He replaced a Hall of Famer, Mike Webster, and started for Pittsburgh for most of his 13 pro seasons.

    Jack Butler played for the Steelers as a cornerback from 1951-59, intercepting 52 passes, at the time second most in NFL history. But he was best known for his tackling skills and was feared in the secondary as much as any defensive back in the history of the game.

    Butler and Dawson both are so well deserving, Jack for such a long time it's great to see him get in.

    Bettis will get in, no question about it, but it was a tough call this year with so many great candidates.

    Huge congrats to both Dirt and Jack! True Steeler legends that will be enshrined with the best of the best. I wasn't around to see Jack Butler play but looking at his stats and listening to him talk on the NFL Network, he was so well respected as tough, hard nosed, player that loved the game.
