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

With all the talent we have at the WR position, and our offensive line's inability to give Ben 3 seconds in the pocket; I'd like to see them use more 4 and 5 WR sets, drop Ben into the shotgun and tear defenses up west coast style (who would expect that from us?). They all should play, all of our WR's are top notch and could start for most teams. I want to see Cotchery get into the mix, he's fast, tall and he's a beast over the middle.

I would love to see that!

Yes, 'cause Hines is the glue for the next batch of Stallworths', and Swans', which right now appear to be Wallace and Brown, but just like Hines, they need to be able to take and give some great HITS', when need be. -that's what's different now, get it?
any questions ?

I found this to be pretty amazing. Whatever you think of Terrell Owens, he has been statistically-speaking a stud wide receiver for pretty much his entire career, and has avoided injuries up until now. Hines Ward is three years his junior, and yet he's only about a season-and-a-half to two seasons behind Owens on the career receptions list. And Owens is unlikely to be adding to his totals any longer.

In other words, Ward is more of a stud than people give him credit for being.

Something also to think about is that Ward has been on a team that has rarely over the years had a pass-happy offense.
