Default Gil Brandt thinks Hines Ward is not worthy of the HOF

Gil Brandt is currently doing a life chat on NFL.com and well i will just let you read it...

Ben, Springfield Mo 02:56 PM ET
On the topic of HOF, Do you think the Hines Ward will ever get into Canton?
Gil Brandt, NFL.com
No, Hines Ward is a very good football player, but you have to be an exceptional player to get to Canton.


This guy doesnt believe that 800 catches, almost 10,000 receiving yards and 72 TD's is worthy of the HOF. Plus Hines could play another 5 to 10 years. He has better stats than like half the guys on there. I hope Ward sees this and it pisses him off as much as it pissed me off, if he feeds off of this then he will have a monster game vs SD.

This a represenation of shallow narrow minded thinking I see so often in the NFL.

Ward is the most complete wide receiver in modern day football. If the Steelers win a couple more Super Bowls in the next few years Ward's chances increase dramatically.

Finally I think one could present an argument thart Ward is a better Wide Receiver than Jerome Bettis is a Running Back and Bettis will make the make the HOF and he should.

I bet some would argue that as well.!

Hines has another 5-10 years? LOL

Hines deserves the HOF, I think he has another 15-17 TD's to collect in his career to. I assume Hines has another 2-3 years left in him.

BS. If that were truly the case, at least 1/3 of the current enshrinees wouldn't be in there. Let's start with Andre Tippett, Joe Namath, John Riggins, et al. and go from there.

Not even considering the stats, because that's not his greatest asset.

He makes such an impact because he's an intimidator, a force on the field. Not his catches, but the toughness he plays with

Gil used to be part of the Cowbells organization - and has an inherent dislike for anything Black and Gold. Whenever I hear him on my Sirius, I dial up music until I know he's gone lol

What? are you serious Gil? Ward made the all time Steelers team as a current player. I think when you look at 75 years worth of receivers and choose Ward as one of three of the best of all time, that should seal his fate
