Nashville, TN (PRWEB) September 05, 2012
NFL Legend and Former Pittsburgh Steeler Jerome Bettis announces his new blog entitled "Around the League with Jerome Bettis" on http://www.SOTL.com. Bettis retired after the Pittsburgh Steelers won Super Bowl XL in 2006 and he’s expected to be a strong candidate for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in January's voting. In his blog, Bettis will review the weekly NFL action week to week, giving his thoughts and opinions on teams and players as well as his personal take on the league's latest developments.
In this week’s blog, Bettis analyzes the progress of the NFL's two widely anticipated rookie quarterbacks, Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. He also has some concerns about his Pittsburgh Steelers, and thinks the New York Jets have made a mistake by investing in Tim Tebow.
“A lot of tension has been heaped on the Jets already, before they've played a single regular-season game, and I think it's a problem that's stunting the growth of the team,” says Bettis. “Take the benching of right tackle Wayne Hunter -- before he was traded Monday night -- which blew up into front page news in New York. It shouldn't be a big issue to make a lineup switch, because that's what training camp is all about. But the problem now is that they've had so much media attention since Tim Tebow arrived that every move they make is scrutinized.”
