There have been some tremendous talents who were all the rage when it came to fantasy football, but one of the first Fantasy Football legends was none other than Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jerome Bettis. The big, agile, Hall of Fame running back was known for his goal-line play and his ability to get into the end zone.

Here at SB Nation, they were able to talk to “The Bus” about being a Fantasy Football legend. Check out the complete video below, and relive the greatness that was Jerome “The Bus” Bettis when he cut through defensive backs like a warm knife through butter.
