...Yeah because Mike Wallace only ran go routes today.

Oh wait he did that once on the PI. The rest of his catches were from a WR screen, a couple of slants, a hook, a quick out, and a fade for a TD. I believe this is the 5th straight 100 yard receiving game for Wallace. Damn him and his one-tricks. Lets get rid of him so Hines Ward and Jerricho Cotchery can be 1 and 2.

owners own, coaches coach, players play, and managers manage.

fans pretend that they can do all 4.

Hines played great today. Had a pretty impressive catch and some good blocks as always, that's why he will always be a starter if he is on the team. Must say though, Wallace cut the defense up and Sanders did pretty well too.

I really didn't see any impressive blocks from Hines today. Which plays? I know Foster had one on the Redman TD.

There was a play that resulted in a 9 yard run by Mendenhall, though I can't tell you when it happened from memory. I believe he blocked Thomas on the play. There was one other play where I recall noting a quality block from Ward, but obviously that's not very specific, and thus not very helpful.

I absolutely do think Ward should remain in the mix. He's the overall best receiver we have, and he's still making big plays. Wallace is on pace for a huge year. 100+ yards each game this season I believe. Then we have a promising deep threat in Brown, and yet another burner being Sanders. As far as i'm concerned, you could put Larry Fitzgerald on the team, and Ward is STILL the best player. But that's just me. Hines is a smart, dynamic receiver, and with his experience in the NFL, he'll always make the best decisions. The young guys will only benefit from watching Hines do his thing. Go Steelers!

Hines Ward
Mike Wallace
Antonio Brown
Emmanuel Sanders

^ My opinion.

hines ward assists taking 2 defender out of the play from a stand still position at the end of the line.

no defender should get blowed up at the line like that by any 200 lb wr. it wasnt apancake but hines definitely had him on roller skates.

his ass will get clowned in team meetings with a pat on the back to not feel too bad because slow, old man hines is the best at that and does it to everyone.

a wr taking the safety out of the play is usually a tall task, especially when it's earl thomas who draws comparisons to a young troy polamalu
