Default Re: Hines wont retire !

He's going to have to restructure. I've made this point in a few other threads and this one needs it made too. No matter how it looked on the field, statistically the offense did worse without Ward starting. I prefer the way things look to stats, much like our #1 defense that never showed up this year, but the numbers did go down when Hines went out. Wallace disappeared for 4-5 games straight and dropped the 2 balls thrown his way yesterday, he just flat disappears, I thought Hines should have took his spot yesterday, you shouldn't be able to disappear for a third of the season and disappear in the playoffs and keep starting in front of a vet that has more playoff catches than everybody on the team. Hines was took out for " a lack of productivity" yet productivity, at least by the numbers, went down when he came out. We need to keep him, of course a restructure is necessary, but these young guys, specifically Wallace, have a lot to learn from him still. I think it would be foolish though to think that after getting pushed to the back of the pile while the new "star" receiver disappears for a while, that Hines isn't at least a bit irritated and angry towards the coaching staff.

Vet min for Ward. But we do not need a slogan for Hines, he won 2 rings.

How about for the fans who pay the freight, lol But most 5th wr on a team are also special team players etc. Ward would be only a 5th WR.

I completely agree. I know he's gotten older and that Brown has made it to the #1 spot on the roster (or should be), but when it comes down to needing a win, I want Hines on the field.

Hopefully this does not involve something ugly like Hines being given his release - he needs to recognize it is time to end a great career

Hines Ward is the man. I was absolutely disgusted in last year's SB when the play kept going to Wallace and he had no clue what to do. I think if more plays in that SB, as well as yesterday's game, were directed towards Hines Ward, we would have had a much better chance to win. Wallace dropped the ball, but Ward didn't even get a real chance. I wouldn't be surprised if Wallace gets offered "sick-mad" amounts of money to play for some other team. With the probable loss of Cotchery next year as well, we will be begging to have Ward back on the field next season.

CBS tracker at the bottom of my TV said he was our starting WR during the game on Sunday. Put that in the stat book.

Ward's and Wallace's stats were almost identical in last years SB.

Ward will most likely play out his contract and collect the 4 mil left on it before he retires. Unless he is forced out by injury.
