Big Ben Roethlisberger says Bettis is the Pittsburgh Steelers; deserves HOF

Pittsburgh Steelers former running back Jerome Bettis is  up for the Hall of Fame in 2014, and he deserves the call in my opinion.  Well today when Big Ben was asked about Jerome he too agreed with me.

“He is one of the best of all time. His numbers, he has a Super Bowl. What he has done on the football field is easily deserving of Canton. He is the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“He was someone you knew put in the hard work, he wasn’t going to make mistakes, you could count on him. He was a proven guy, a veteran who always went hard.

“It was more than just how special he was as a football player. What he did on the football field spoke for itself. The leadership, the type of player he was. It was the locker room, off the field, the community. When I first got here it was the time the WWJD bracelets, What Would Jesus Do, came out and I would laugh when I was doing things and think, What Would Jerome Do. He is someone I tried to mold myself after. That is what made him so special, outside of the talent he had on the field.”
