Default Re: Should Hines Ward still be in the starting rotation?

Yes, he should be starting. Experience ! If he can touch the ball he usually catches the ball. Play the other's when we have a lead and they can get some good game time play.Just my opinion

Hines is still the best receiver we have. Not every pass play is going to be 50+yds and a TD. Hines is a chain mover and a better redzone threat than anyone else we have, including Heath. The young guys are great fun to watch and should be a dangerous group in the near future, but they still have a lot to learn. Maybe later this season that will change but for now, Hines Ward is still our guy.

I honestly don't think you watch the games if you think Hines can get open quickly. It's not only blatantly obvious watching every game last year, but it's common sense seeing how slow he is. And by getting open, I don't mean him catching a WR screen.

Mike Wallace is the best receiver we have. It isn't even close.

And Sanders could be every bit the possession/blocking receiver Hines is. He could just do everything a lot faster. He's really not going to get the reps he needs to when Ben is running for his life when we go 5 wide.

Tell us how is Wallace over the middle, where Hines excels.

Wallace is good but not that good. One trick pony ring a bell.

Grammar check please.

I could post ALL of Hines's but I don't want to melt down the server.

Speed doesn't make a guy smarter or better.

Wait, what?

Oh, the OTHER Wallace.
-----------------------------------------

It's 4th and 6 with less than 2 minutes left in the game. You need a first down. Who are you looking for ... Wallace, Sanders, Brown, or Ward?

Potential is one thing. Proven ability is another. I'm not ready to kick Hines to the curb just yet.

I'm well aware of what Hines can do. Obviously you're not aware of how good a receiver Wallace is because running deep routes isn't all he can do.

Speaking of the one trick pony, would you consider Hines a one trick pony because all he can do is catch passes over the middle? Or is blocking part of the equation too?

It is beyond hilarious that people on here think that Hines is still the best receiver on the team let alone the #1. Four years ago, yeah.

I'm not going to make a case for Hines because his career speaks for itself and again you prove that you have no actual knowledge of the game. Unlike you, I don't have to demean other players to make a case for any particular player's effectiveness or value because I can do so with real observations and assessment. I won't waste my time with you, as I've seen others on here do because i don't care enough to try. Even if you are a Steeler fan and not just a troll, which I doubt, you are clearly more concerned with being right than with the good of the team. That not only makes you the worst kind of fan, it makes you dumb.
