    Why is Bettis not in the hof?

    Someone at work was telling me Bettis isn't first ballot material etc. that he wasn't that great. I'm like this guy is 5 th on the all time rushing list. He should darn well be in the hof fame by now. Before warren sapp for sure.i know eventually he will get in, but I think he should be by now.

    Someone on the hof committee felt there were too many steelers in, that's what it is.
    Cleveland Browns suck!

    I do think it does play into it. Otherwise it would be a steeler ceremony every year. Look how long it took swann and stallworth to get in. Last year jack butler made it. I think LC greenwood belongs in the hof.

    But if anybody deserves to be in, it's Bettis.

    Maybe in 2015 , a coloration with ten years after the Steelers' 1995 SB...I am afraid he may have to wait longer than that though...

    True. Unfortunately.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    He'll get in eventually. He's one of my personal all time favorites, but not first ballot worthy.

    I always thought that Donnie Shell should be in the Hall. He had over 50 int. and was one of hardest hitting safety's of all time.

    I agree. I believe he was definitely a victim of "Steeler fatigue" when it comes to the HOF.
