Default Re: Lasting memories of Hines Ward

The Hines Ward highlight reel is practically non-stop inside of my head. I can go on and on and on.

The one catch that WASN'T a catch that keeps popping in my mind was the 2001 AFC Championship game VS New England.

In a crucial moment in the game, Kordell cocked back and fired a missile down the sidelines. The target was Hines and he made this SPECTACULAR catch, stretching out with all of his mite and hauling in this Swann-like catch. His butt landed in-bounds but the refs ruled it incomplete and a no-catch. To this day, I still think that's a catch and I believe that would of put us in a position to go to the Super Bowl and pull that game out.
