    Who was better, Emmitt Smith or Jerome Bettis?

    Simple question, who was a better HB? Emmitt Smith or Jerome Bettis?

    Before you decide, keep in mind Bettis was a big, strong back who wore down the defense; that should carry some weight (probably not as much as Bettis did later in his career, but some weight nonetheless).

    (MODS: I know this will get moved to the comparison forum, just wanted somebody to actually look at it before it is relegated to obscurity).

    Oh that's right. I forget Bettis wasn't the size of Eric Metcalf. Have to think about this one.

    Lmao

    Smith was better. I know he has tons of people who hate him and those who think he was average at best or as one guy thinks would never make a roster on another team but I disagree and have him much above the Bus.

    Me and my Boys.
    Thank you PSD for your support and prayers.

    Yeah... I hate Smith and love Bettis and I can't justify picking the Bus over whatever Emmitt's nickname is (The Illiterate?)

    OP should turn in his sports, NFL, and any other card he had after this horrible question. Reducing Emmitt Smith down to Jerome Bettis. You should be embarrassed asking this question OP.
