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.

I agree.
Plus, he wasn't "flashy" like a Moss, Carter, etc. I think Steelers fans have a big surprise coming when they find Hines not getting inducted to the HOF.
