Default Bill Polian- "If Hines Ward isnt a 1st ballot HOF'er....

... something is wrong.

Pretty lofty praise from a highly respected executive today on Sirius. Of course Polian is very familiar with the likes of James Lofton, andrae reed, Marvin Harrison, and Reggie Wayne

sounds good to me! Ward deserves to be in there. He's been the face of smash-mouth football since Bettis retired.

Anyone that actually has "watched" football over the last 12 years know that Hines is more deserving than all the other pre-madana's on the list. Just like how Tim Brown bitched on his Twitter like a baby when he didn't get the call. I think Chris Carter belongs, because of what he brought to his team. The rest should stand in line behind Hines!

I thought Bettis was first ballot as well, and I was wrong. That said, Ward is a SB MVP, which Bettis never was.

I agree, but if it takes guys like Carter and Art Monk a few tries, so too will Ward. He is no Prima Donna like many WR s were.

Ward did so much more for the position of wide reciever than his numbers and even the MVP will show! GREATEST blocking reciever in the history of the game! Look how many recievers now pay more attention to blocking, a game changer for sure!!!

And he changed the way the game is played forever. Just ask the rule makers.

First ballot all the way!

It doesn't matter if he's a first ballot or not. Just get him there when he still has time to enjoy this honor.

he's not going to be first ballot. i love hines but even looking through black and gold glasses, i don't see it happening.

would be awesome though, but as long as he gets in eventually i don't mind. he deserves it, i just don't think a first ballot though.

He would have been if he didn't retire the same year as Emmitt Smith and Curtis Martin.
