All Time Backs Better than Jerome Bettis

Bettis is fifth on the career rushing list. That's about the only good thing I can say about him. Oh yeah, he has 'nimble feet'.

The rankings below are their rankings on the career rushing list

1. E Smith 18355
2. W Payton 16726
3. B Sanders 15269
4. *C Martin 14101
5. *J Bettis 13662
6. E Dickerson 13259
7. T Dorsett 12739
8. J Brown 12312
9. *M Faulk 12279
10. M Allen 12243
11. F Harris 12120
12. T Thomas 12074
13. J Riggins 11352
14. O Simpson 11236
16. E George 10441
17. *C Dillon 10429
19. E Campbell 9407
20. *E James 9226
33. *P Holmes 8035
37. *S Alexander 7817
39. T Davis 7607
42. *L Tomlinson 7361
46. *R Williams 7097


I would consider every back on this list to be better than Bettis, with the exception of Dillon, George, Harris, and Ricky Williams, who I think can be argued are probably better. I just don't understand all this adulation for a guy who has about 25 backs ahead of him.

By the time their careers are done, I can see arguments being made for Tiki Barber, Larry Johnson, Deuce McAllister, maybe even Bro Sweets and Jamal 'Scarface' Lewis.

A final note: his career ypc is 3.9--barely better than the NFL average.

I don't see much of a difference between the two.

I'm just tired of the media slobbin his knob because he's 'a great guy'. I've thought he was overrated for a long time, now seems like the perfect time to bring it up

Bettis, in his prime, was a hell of a Rb.

He has just played well past his prime.

It paid off for him, though, today.

I don't think he's been a hell of an rb since 1997. He's been able to take a beating, but that's about it.

He never led the league in any category, except for total rushes, once.

I just don't see how that makes him a world-class back.

True, but they do that with everybody. It's part of their madison avenue crafted-good guys image (as opposed to the NBA's marketing strategy).

Bettis doesn't want to make me vomit any more than Tom Brady, Kurt Warner, or than Peyton Manning would've. I even like Manning, but it's just overexposure.

The Ravens winning that Superbowl a couple a years back was probably those marketing guys' worst nightmare.

Everyone here knows that Jerome is going into the HOF on the first ballot. I think he's between the 20th and 30th best RBs all-time

I think we can all agree it would be hard to find 20 LBers better than DT all time, yet he's not in the HOF. Shit like this makes me bitter.
