If you had to choose one or the other to start your version of the Pittsburgh Steelers which would be the better choice? Who ya Got?
Franco Harris: Rookie of the year, HOF member who has his own army and even has a statue in Pittsburgh in remembrance of his Immaculate Reception. Franco's rushed for 12,120 yards with a 4.1 avg.
Jerome "The Bus" Bettis: Rookie of the year, Future HOFer, the Steelers all-time leading rusher and 6th leading rusher of all time. Jerome rushed for 13, 362 yards with a 3.9 avg.
Laveon Bell (have we settled on a nickname as of yet?) He has done absolutely nothing in he NFL except get drafted by our Pittsburgh Steelers in the second round. The other two backs were both picked in the first-round, disadvantage Bell. Why is he included on this list you ask? Good question, you tell me : )
Now when making this decision (and I hope no one takes it lightly) please remember the difference in the era's of play and difference in talent of teams and NFL in general. When stating your reason for or against your choice try to explain which would add the most value if drafted as a 21 yr. old rookie today?
