Default Re: Can there be life after Hines????

I love Hines... but given the chance to jump to a big time guy... I'd have to take it. But that won't happen. The fact of the matter is... no big name receiver will ever want to play here again. It's all about ego... respect... getting paid and having the ball thrown to you all the time in the NFL. The Steelers have established two reputations. One... the running game is king... come here, catch a few balls... but you'd better be prepared to block on 75% of the plays. Two... the Steelers just don't spend the money to attract the bigger name offensive players. Duce came here because he was seen as expendable by his former team. I think it's sad to say... but I predict we see Hines in another uniform... and we let some lower paid young guys do the blocking.
