Bus to get bust?
By AJ Mass
Is the third time the charm for Jerome Bettis?
Bettis has been eligible to get his call to join the football immortals in Canton since 2011, but had to watch as Marshall Faulk and Curtis Martin got their moment to shine on the dais of immortals instead.
Certainly, there's no rule than only one running back can get into the Hall of Fame each season, but with so few players allowed to be inducted each year, that glut of greatness at the position seemingly has been at least part of the equation.
For the first time, Bettis has no other contenders in his way at running back, so perhaps the league's sixth-best rusher of all time will indeed get that call.
Jamison HensleyWill Bettis make Hall of Fame today?
"Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jerome Bettis has his best shot yet at making the Pro Football Hall of Fame. But it still remains uncertain whether he gets voted in Saturday evening."
