    I agree that Bettis changed as a runner as his career advanced. He could certainly be a thumper when with the Rams.

    Jim Brown is the greatest RB to even touch the field along with the greatest power RB.

    I honestly think Jerome Bettis is an overrated power runner. He didn't ram into people like Christian Okoye, Earl Campbell, Jim Brown, Larry Csonka, Mike Alstott. He was a great RB with good feet, but he used to many finesse moves to be ranked #6 imo.

    that was a tough run but one play doesn't make a top 10 power back

    ok. come to think of it most of his steeler highlights were just him being fat. with the rams he was pretty tough though. do you think ahman green was a better power runner? i once watched him run over two linebackers and a safety in the same play.

    they showed some of bettis' highlights. i thought the same as you before i watched that. he really ran over some people.
    jim brown was phenomenal. ALMOST as impressive as edgar bennett.

    i know he didn't deserve to be on the list, and i missed the first few minutes, so he might have been mentioned, but i thought ahman green should've been mentioned as "considered" for leading the league in total yards from 00-04. or whatever that five year stretch was. man he ran as angry as anyone.

    still, i know he doesn't compare to those guys.
