Default Hines Ward - Hall of Fame?

Interesting topic came up at my friends house tonight. Some said no way....I don't think it is impossible. What are the thoughts of the board

4 time pro bowler and a Super Bowl MVP. He still has a few years left and it's very possible. JMO

i think its possible. he is recognized as the hardest hitting and best blocking wide receiver in the league and if he has a couple more real good seasons, then why not??

With a td or two and another ring he would have a 40/60 chance. Another MVP and I think it swings to 70/30 in Hines favor. Now what would make us all happy and would in my opinion seal the deal would be 2 more rings. I think a couple of championships and the widely held opinion of best blocking wr to ever play will more than make up for smaller reception #s.

It'll take a few years of eligibility. Who knows.

I think if he plays three more years and gets a ring this year, and another ring.. and maybe another MVP, then absolutely.

He will ahve to stay at the same level of competition he is at now however.

With the prestigous Steeler recieveing records added to everything talked about here I would certainly vote for him. I think he definitly has a good shot.

I dunno, I think we're starting to see Ward finally ge the recognition he deserves. People aren't just saying he hits hard -- they're saying he has instilled that into the Pittsburgh Steelers. You can't watch Steelers receiver block without Ward's name being mentioned in some way. I think stuff like that has a lot to do with getting into the HoF. The game is all flash now, so who really knows though.

His 800 receptions, nearly 10k yards receiving, and 72 TDs are just icing

Michael Irvin
---
Receptions 750
Receiving yards 11,904
Touchdowns 65

Michael Irvin's numbers, just to augment my point above. Irvin had four rings, but Ward has 1 and if things go well Sunday, 2. Irvin also had all the legal troubles. It'd be particularly annoying if Ward got passed over while the league annointed Irvin (not that Irvin doesn't belong there).
