Stupid is as stupid says. I will guarantee you that McLain will never ever be in consideration for the Hall of Fame. Bettis will be a first ballot inductee. Just Baltimorons once again wishing they could be more like the Steelers. :ratsuck

Come on guys, in a two page thread, one guy said that he could be a Bettis-type while one other agreed and a third claimed that he is not in Bettis' league.

We get just as much nonsense in a two page thread here, maybe more. The end of the thread was a more interesting discussion about Lewis' chances of making it into the HOF. It was a very reasonable discussion with many thinking that he falls a bit short unless there is a weak class.

Wow...... McLain and Bettis. Sure.

I live in DC and we sometimes pretend Baltimore is our step child (not fair, I know) but um.... I need to find what those guys on that board are smoking.

Must be the off season.

It is...could be worse though. To Cleveland fans, off-season starts around week 4. :lol:

I have to agree with you t.o. -- I'm sure we can find a thread around here comparing Frank Summers to Bettis and Summers hasn't even taken a snap in the NFL. I think we all know it will be awhile before someone can claim to be the next Bettis. The quickness and nimbleness, especially in his younger days, of a man that size is a rare trait.

I hate to break this to you, but, no where in that thread did anyone say that McClain will be better than Bettis or even sniff the HOF. One post mentioned he was Bettis-like and a second mentioned Bettis' quick feet and foot speed in his youth. The discussion centered around McClain and Jamal Lewis and Lewis' potential for HOF numbers.

I know you didn't say it, it was implied in my opinion. I expected to open that thread and read a lot of posts about how McClain is better than Bettis or that he'll be HOF worthy at the end of his career based on your McClain = Bettis.

It's no biggie, I was just expecting to read a bunch homerism from the Ravens fans and that wasn't the case. It's cool.

I gotta admit, the lbs on mcclain and how he hits the hole does remind me of the big guy just a little.

He's got a loooong way to go of course, but apart from wearing purple... the kids one hell of a draft pick in my eyes, I remember hoping we took a flyer on him at some point. we took Ryan "Mc-ain't amounted to a hill O beans" in basically the same spot, who now collects a check from the broncos and has never recorded a stat.

Now that I took a peek, he's not even the featured back for the ratturds, and he tallied almost as many yards, and 7 more scores than the bus in his sophomore season...

just saying, kids pretty good for a 4th round fullback.
