As far as i'm concerned, you could put Larry Fitzgerald on the team, and Ward is STILL the best player. But that's just me. Hines is a smart, dynamic receiver, and with his experience in the NFL, he'll always make the best decisions. The young guys will only benefit from watching Hines do his thing. Go Steelers!

Hines Ward
Mike Wallace
Antonio Brown
Emmanuel Sanders

^ My opinion.
Fitzgerald? are you serious? i guess most fans always think they have the best players but there is no way ward is better then fitzgerald

a much younger, stronger, faster defender (who blew up the play and made the goaline stand vs 220+ lb mendenhall on the first drive) getting completely owned by lil' old, washed up, hines ward.

It's amazing how he made that block with his walker with the tennis ball feet.

Every single argument that DanRooney ever came up makes absolutely no sense and then is backed up by nonsense. Hines Ward always makes the tough catch, always provides the key block, always has a positive smile on his face, and always gets the job done. I will never believe Wallace is better than Hines ever since he DROPPED the key 4th down pass in the Super Bowl. Hines would have caught that. Holmes would have caught that while being high.

Wallace is beast but not trusted. The One Trick Pony is getting better, but does not pride himself on making the tough catches. He is faster, but speed doesn't mean everything.

one trick pony or not if he gets us 100 yards a game all the time he is helping his team more then 90% of WR's in the nfl

I completely agree, we need him on the field in order to beat the tough teams

I don't know about stronger...

And actually I wouldn't knock Thomas. He's the only Seahawk who had a good game on defense imo. He blew up Mendenhall in the backfield.

SteelRunner doesn't know that Mike Tomlin was calling him a 'one-trick pony' a YEAR ago as a motivator to get better and not let his success go to his head.

1250 yards and 12 TDs in his first year starting and 100 yards in each of his games this season. Wow you'd think teams could figure out how to stop this one-trick.
