Ed Bouchette Prepares To Make Hall Of Fame Case For Jerome Bettis
PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) — 93-7 The Fan Steelers insider and Post-Gazette reporter Ed Bouchette joined The Fan Morning Show on Friday live from New Orleans to update the hosts on the festivities surrounding the Super Bowl and to discuss Steelers legend Jerome Bettis’ Hall of Fame candidacy.
Bouchette will make the case for Bettis’ induction and he admitted that much of the decision can come down to the case made for a player, making the result somewhat difficult to predict.
“Sometimes a guy’s candidacy hinges on how good the arguments are in that room,” Bouchette said.
He said that he plans on hammering out his case more once he finishes more of his work for the Post-Gazette, but noted a few key bullet points he already has in mind, such as an emphasis on Bettis’ leadership qualities.
