Default SB XL question...

This little thing has bothered me since the game. Why did Hines Ward get the MVP? In my opinion, other than the catch at the 3 yd line, and the TD catch, he really didn't do anything. Who do I think deserved it?

Not Ben. Horrible stats.

Not Bettis, not involved enough.

Fast Willie? Maybe, he had the long run, and stayed constant throughout the game.

I honestly believe that Randel El should have received the MVP award.

Thoughts? Opinions?

watch him closely during the game, he was making an impact on almost every play (maybe an exaggeration but still) , like catches with his finger tips, his usual blocking, rushed for about 20 yards on a play....... you know, he was being hines, keeping drives alive, hurting defenders.....

He was a warrior in the game, just like he usually is

he definitely deserved it imo, no one played with more heart in the game than him(except maybe jerome, but his performace wasn't spectacular)

if the steelers get to another super bowl with him I hope he gets it again, cause I know he will play with the same way he did in XL, like a warrior

I'm still bummed about his drop in the end zone though, lol

Hines Ward, in line for the mantle of God, after Lambert and Bradshaw have finished with it. That's assuming Mean Joe will give it back!

But Hines' blocking, and his movement, and his catching got him the award and nicely so. Would have been uber if The Bus had gotten it, but that was never going to happen.

I just wish Randle EL was a Steeler still. I don't know the 'poliitics' of why he left., and prolly don't want to. It'll just hurt. But, I never used to worry on ST plays before he left.

It would certainly be nice to have Randle El for special teams right now. As far as "politics," I had just thought he had received an offer he couldn't refuse.

Hines had 5 receptions for 123 yards and a TD in a game which was poorly played by both teams overall. You think Randle El should have gotten it based on one pass, I assume? Because he really didn't do anything else that game - 3 receptions for 22 yards and 2 KO returns for 32 yards are hardly MVP-worthy numbers. Hines was the only one on the field that day that deserved MVP. If anything, SB XL was one of the easier SBs in recent memory to pick a MVP for.

Agreed....The only two who could have possibly gotten consideration is Hines and Willie...Hines wins based on total achievment.

I think he definitely should have gotten MVP as getting 123 yards for a receiver is really good
