Are Voters Holding Jerome Bettis Out Of The Hall Of Fame Because Of His YPC Average?

The third time was not the charm for former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jerome Bettis as he was not elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2013 on Saturday. Most of the arguments I have read as to why Bettis should not get in right now seem to revolve around the fact that he finished his career with less than a 4.0 yards per average.
