One of the Steelers' all time best and a true definition of a Steeler. :hatsoff:

300 yards away from 10,000 yards and a spot in Canton.

good thing were gonna cut him in a salary cap saving measure....






















:jawdrop:

actually he makes about 9 mil next season which is the final year in his contract. lets hope he takes a HUGE hometown discount to retire a steeler like jerome.

i have a feeling he would be one of the first to do so.

:cheers: to hines!

It would be a shame to see him in any other jersey.

Hopefully Hines takes a good deal that allows him to play in Pittsburgh even longer, and gets to win a few more Rings as a Steeler.

I don't know why he would want to be anywhere else.

He's the greatest receiver in the history of one of the greatest franchises in the league with a fanatical following.

Sounds like a no-brainer to me.

We common people know nothing of football politics, however.

He's going to be like Art Monk. Forgotten as one of the best recievers.

That 's actually funny that you mention Monk.

After he caught that 800th pass I thought about his potential to be a HoF WR.

Then I immediately realized that he is going to get Monk'd.

We all know that it is going to take a guy like Woodson or Bettis to get a Steeler into the HoF. There's Steeler over-crowding going on and the Bungle fans are starting to get a little :crying02:

I know Hines is on the back end of his career but I think he's got 3-5 yrs left.

When you look up "Steelers football player" in the dictionary, there's a picture of Hines Ward. He is what Steelers football is all about.

What a game by Ward. IMO he has had a HOF career. Now it's time for Ward to come up big in the playoffs.

They probably wont retire his number but the next guy who wears 86 has big shoes to fill and he better be able to block. I cant stomach the thought of an average or below average WR wearing 86 in the future.

I moved here in 95, and I never dared think I'd be able to witness comparable chapters in Steelers history to the dynasty of the 70s. I've watched every game since August of that year, and it's been a privilege to watch him play the game. I believe he'll get into Canton easily, honestly, simply because he's been recognized by his peers and the media as being the most complete player at his position for years. Maybe that's being a little naive, but my gut tells me he'll be there.

I love Ward and his game from his rookie season on.

I was thinking today, if you had to choose one Steeler WR in his prime to start for a season, who would it be? Swann, Stallworth, Ward, Lipps???

For me, I still think John Stallworth was the most complete Steeler WR ever.
