Hines has made a quite a few enemies by his monster blocks and is labeled by many as a dirty player.
Those emotions come out more than his qualifications which in my opinion make him a HOF'er.

Maybe in a few years from now, those negative emotions will be gone and people will vote on him by what he did. 1000 catches, SB MVP

If you're wondering why: fantasy football. 'Nuff said.

Skip Bayless says definitively, yes.
Stephen A. Smith says definitively, no.
Mangenius sings praises but says, not sure.


http://espn.go.com/nfl/

Not sure how long clip will stay on site, but it is the middle small clip under the big main video window. Caption on clip: HOF for Ward?. Title of clip: The Fame Game.

I think he gets in for sure, but I think he will have to wait a few years. The current logjam is bad, plus as you guys have said, guys like Moss, Owens, etc might be eligible around the same time (I am not sure how long Ward will play from here, if at all).

He'll get in without a doubt. SB MVP for one, that's not a lock, but it's huge. Plus he is the Steelers #1 WR of all time. That means he is the #1 WR of all time on the #1 team of all time. Sure media types and jealous opposing fans can make all the claims they want, fact is the Steelers are the most successful team in the NFL since the start, and Ward has about every WR record for the Steelers. You add on to that 3 SB appearances, 2 SB wins, and a SB MVP, he will get in without a doubt. Aside from the championships and all the rest, is there anybody who was thee best WR in any teams history that isn't in the HOF? I don't think so.

Most of the guys who put up better numbers than him played in pass-happy offenses. It's amazing Hines put up the numbers he did while playing in a run first offense for the majority of his career. add in the fact he was as clutch as anyone, Super Bowl MVP (2 rings), best blocking WR ever... that's HOF worthy imo.. the fantasy football nerd ****s who don't want him in can all go to hell.

These fan's have no idea what they are talking about. You can't just look at the numbers though they are really good. This guy was the best overall WR ever to play the game. He did it all Catch, Run, and even a pass or too at the begining of his career. He did everything they said he couldn't do. This guy is a HOF in my book, but with all the steeler haters out there who no's look at what Bettis is going through.

I think outside of Ben, Hines is probably hte most hated player on this team for other teams' fans. He's "dirty", "cheap", etc. That sort of thing tends to cloud judgment. He's a 1000 yard catch guy and I think only seven other guys have that plus a two time champ and a one time SB MVP.
