Default Hines

I hate controversy but


Hines has had alot of great catches in his lifetime.. What an amazing feat to surpass the greatest in Steeler history.,,,,,,

Now for what I am seeing as of late.. This year in particular.. Last year I must have been sleeping..

Hines is losing some speed.. The man is a great WR and a great possession receiver and the blocking....OMG.. The man is great as a blocker,

What Hines does not have anymore is the heart.. The reason perhaps he does not have the heart anymore is because he misses some of the coaches.

Feel free to discuss

p.s. you can talk about double coverage all day but you have to account for some dropped balls

i dont think anyone is going to agree with you on the heart issue with all the 3rd down conversions and tough catches in traffic he's made this year for us. he's still the go-to-guy on the field when we need it most and he gets the job done.

You're exactly backwards.

His heart is fine... but he is getting older.... that is why he isn't a threat down field, and losing some speed. It is time for us to pick up another receiver (if we didn't have all the Oline and now D problems ), and move him into the slot.

I hope that you were just kidding with your post or you have just jumped on the bandwaggon this year. Hines Ward is one of the most heartfelt players in the league today/yesterday no matter what era your discussing friend. This Ward guy that your talking about is the same one that makes 3rd down receptions game after game. No, he has Never had great speed and I think that is where you are a new fan obviously. If you saw the Super Bowl catch that he made from Randel El, then it should be easy to figure out that it took HInes about 30 seconds to get that far down the field...
He's Not Fast...
But He Will Own Every Steelers' Recieving Record B-4 its all said and done..

Going into last week, the dumbest post were about Arians and Tomlin. Then this week it was all about Lebeau and how he should be fired. But this post takes it to a whole new level. Hines Ward has lost his heart? I mean, what is next, Dan Rooney is a homo.

LMFAO. Hines no heart!!! He needs to give his heart to some of the other players on the field(read OL).

Can't agree with you there Busman. Hines has the biggest "Heart" on the entire team. If all our players played the way Hines plays, we would have not lost to some of the teams we lost to this year.

Put down the crack pipe and step away from the computer.

Hines has more heart than most players. He wears it out in the open for all to see.

He's lost some speed, that is true, but to say he's lost heart... Try inhaling some pure air for a change.

Hines is getting older and was never a burner - for that reason he will need to rework his contract this offseason, not because he has lost "heart."

As for missing the coaches, Hines has never forgotten or forgiven the Steelers spending #1 picks on WRs in 1999 & 2000 after he was drafted in 1998 and being asked to play in the slot in training camp one year, as he stated in a 2006 SI interview - unlike Faneca & Grimm, I do not think Hines lost or misses any drinking buddies from the old regime.
