Points aren't scored (or not scored) in a vacuum. If player X doesn't score, player Y might. If player X does, player Y never gets a chance. Bettis, late in his career, was a TD machine but nobody'd consider him an MVP of any of those teams. He just took the ball at the one and punched it in. If he hadn't existed, the ball wouldn't have just been turned over or something.

In Moss' big TD year, there were often times when they'd go 3 times to him at the goal line. That doesn't mean that if he hadn't been there, the team would've just scored 120+ points less. They'd have gotten most of those points just the same.
