    Like strahan are on tv constantly. I'm not knocking Any of the guys going into the hall, but bettis belongs in the hall. And not 5 years from now. It's politics for sure.
    I think you are just being a homer... Brooks is arguably the best WLB of all time.

    Brooks is a Top 10 ALL TIME Linebacker (any position)

    Brooks was the best OLB 4-3 in the entire NFL for most of his career... Bettis was hardly the best RB in any given year, let alone over many years.

    Look, Bettis should get into the HOF at some point. He has the numbers. But there's no reason to be stupid about it. Bettis over Brooks is just being stupid.

    If the steelers make the super bowl next year Bettis will get in. Just like Jones this year for Seattle and Ogden last year. Seems like there is a special team gift every year for the HOF. Not saying Ogden wasn't worthy, but Jones over bettis, Haley, or brown? No....

    Walter Jones is one of the greatest NFL players of all-time, regardless of position. He was on the field at left tackle for 5,703 pass attempts, but he was called for holding only nine times (once in every 633 passes or .0016). Insane. He was beaten for a sack only 23 times. Less than twice a season. He allowed a sack one every 248 pass attempts or .004 percent of the time. 9 time Pro Bowler, 6 time All-Pro. He also was voted to the NFL’s All Decade team for 2000-10. In 2005, Sporting News listed Jones as the best player in the NFL at any position.

    He absolutely deserved to get in over Bettis. As did Brooks. Bettis' time will come. He absolutely should already be in, but he'll get there.
