Two Pittsburgh Steelers Elected to Hall of Fame, Bettis Left Out
Apparently buses do not stop in Canton, Ohio, at least not yet. The NFL announced moments ago the six new Hall of Fame enshrines. The list includes Curtis Martin, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, Willie Roaf, Dermontti Dawson, and senior selection Jack Butler.
Jerome Bettis has been left of the final ballot for the second consecutive year, and one has to wonder when “the Bus” will be welcomed into the prestigious group.
Dermontti Dawson, Bettis’ teammate for years, is among the six players elected to the HOF. Dawson is one of the best centers to ever play the game. He was an anchor on Pittsburgh’s line, starting 170 consecutive games. He was selected to seven straight pro bowls from 1992-1998.
Dawson was first eligible for the HOF in 2005, so his time was well overdue.
Senior selection Jack Butler also played for the black and gold. He was a cornerback from 1951-59. His 52 interceptions were 2nd most in league at the time in which he played. In 2008, Butler was named as one of the 33 greatest Steelers players of all-time.
The selection of these two fellow Steelers ahead of Bettis comes as quite the surprise, but Dawson and Butler are very deserving. Bettis will surely be in the HOF sooner than later, it is just a matter of when the Bus decides to make a pit-stop in Ohio.
