sorry - can't agree with you that Brown and Sanders vanish when playing the Ravens. Remember Browns huge 53 yard catch and Sanders was the only one to help us put up any points in this past game

Absolutely not. Sanders offers everything that Hines Ward does but his much faster. Ward should be rotated in with Sanders...not vice versa. Brown should be the #2 opposite of Wallace (which he already is).

He should absolutley still be a starter! Our running game success depends in part to how well our WR block- he's still at this age the best blocking WR in the league- w/o him, Mendy will have fewer 20+ yard runs.

Seriously, the whole "you're not the coach" thing is ****ing old. Bruce Arians is one of our coaches. The guy you trash all the time. If I wanted to be an ass and just knock your post I would just say "that's why you're not the coach" every time you bitch and whine about him.

Hines has trouble getting open. Most of his long gainers come when Ben buys an eon of time for him to find a soft spot in the zone. The others come from WR screens. Rarely ever do you see Ward get open in man quickly.

The first sign I look for in internet posts to determine if that person has anything useful to contribute to the conversation, is whether or not they have to resort to grammar-nitpicking.

Usually, when they have to comment on grammar, it is a good indicator that something really dumb is about to follow....

^^^^ This coming from a guy that just had to resort to being the grammar police?

He was able to get open for 5 catches for 67 yards, with one being a long 31 yarder Sunday. No other WR in the game today is better at finding the holes and seams in a zone defense. You do understand the term and concept of a "possession receiver", do you not?

No on deep balls? Didn't Ward have like, the longest pass play against the Ravens D last Sunday? Go for about 40 yards? Hmmm

Hines Ward may be a little bit slow, but his physicalness makes up for it

Hines Ward still has value - more so than Brown or Sanders because he has better hands than both of them.

After Ward, Sanders has better hands than Brown. So I would play Sanders above Brown.

I know all of you are ga-ga over Brown but he still has some learning to go.
