My nephew is an 17 year old Steeler fan. He has been following the Steelers for as long as he can remember.

I mentioned Fu in conversation the other day and he said "Who"?.

I said "Fu, that bad Maha Fala". He didn't know what i was talking about.

Hines and Fu got drafted the same year. THATS HOW LONG HINES HAS BEEN AROUND. High School age steeler fans love Hines, but mention Fu, and they are clueless.

I like Fu. But then, I was a Richard Huntley fan too. And a Kendrell Bell fan as well.
Hines outlasted all those guys by so much that most steeler fans can't even remember the other guys.

As true as that is, Hines is the absolute "least" of our, err umm I should say, the Steelers' worries right now, ? Hines may likely retire, and maybe along with the coming of our new OC.?

But ya, the only thing on Rooney's mind, as well as the entire Steelers' org, right now, is lookin' for and getting the best OC, as well as other Offensive coaching improvements to suit the Steelers' needs.

I wouldn't lose too much sleep, worrying about Hine's "age", for now.

It's amazing how long Hines has been with this team. He has been the face of the Steelers for a long time. he's seen a lot wearing the Black and Gold.

Hines was drafted in 1998
The Browns have had 16 different starting quarterbacks since then
Cal Ripken Jr's streak of consecutive games finally ends in September
The Chicago Bulls won their 2nd 3-Peat of the Jordan era
The NBA had a lock-out that cut the season to 50 games
The top grossing movie was Armageddon and the top drama was Saving Private Ryan
Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On was the leading single
Big Ben was 16 years old.

Like I said, I wouldn't worry about Hine's age, and MUCH LESS about the dam useless information.
But, hat's off, for your hard work googling that water boy crap.
Ok, now gimme 10 more, from 2002 please.

wow, some of that's crazy. Cal Ripken Jr's streak and the Bulls Jordan era seem like such a long time ago. I can't believe Hines has been around that long.

and check out LeBeau:
-"...drafted in the fifth round in 1959, LeBeau played 14 Years in the NFL...",
a bit longer than even Hines.
that's uncanny.

Dick LeBeau played against Noll, and our 70's Steelers.
Now that's a loooooong time. -haha
I guess Hines has atleast another year to go still.

...curled up on the floor watching D-Day on CNN
LeBeau doesn't subscribe to the History Channel, the H-Channel subscribes to him.
