I actually think Hines will wait longer than Bettis has to - I say Bettis gets in in the next two tries.

Unfortunately for Hines, he didn't put up huge numbers. Possession WRs who specialize in blocking are not high on the list. As much as I love him, and as much as I think he was the best Steelers WR since Swann and Stallworth - just not enough people that are gung-ho on him.

Plus, he was widely disliked because of his blindside hitting - that will hurt him.
