The finalists for the class of 2015 Pro Football Hall of Fame were announced last night. Most notably, Jerome Bettis was among the final 15 for the 5th straight year. In 13 seasons, Bettis amassed 13,662 yards, the 6th most in NFL history, and remains the only one of the eligible top 14 career rushing leaders not inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Other former Steelers are also in the top 15. Former Steelers linebacker Kevin Greene, who recorded an amazing 160 sacks over the course of his career, is in the running again this year.
Tony Dungy played Safety for the Steelers in ’78 and ’79, and later returned as a defensive backs coach and defensive coordinator. It is his second year of eligibility.
The 2015 class will be announced on January 31st. Is this the year the Bus stops in Canton?
