Re: Time For Dan Rooney!!!!!!
If I had anything to say about it, bringing Hines back to be a 5th WR and play second and third fiddle on SPECIAL TEAMS, then that would actually be WORSE than terminating his contract. Seriously, you have one of the greatest all time Steelers wideouts who set records almost by the year, and you want him to run down on Special Teams? I don't think so, Hines Ward isn't no Bryant McFadden.
It's the end of an era but Hines time is up. The Steelers are the greatest organization in the WORLD, they know when it's time and quite frankly, Hines wasn't the first hard decision. They released him while he went out on top with catching his 1,000th pass in Cleveland, not bumming him out on Special Teams. This was the right choice even though that still hurts to say.
