    Default Define Hines

    What type of receiver or talents/skills does Hines offer besides being tough ? Would you take a crew of receivers with his style of play for the team ?

    I'm just wondering if some of you guys would rather have a different style receiver that is known for being a burner or big TD threat style receiver ?

    Do teams fear him or game plan for him like a Fiztgerald or any other big name receiver ?

    Hinze Ward, according to Websters, the kind of guy you only like if he's on your team.

    Complete player. Not the best at any one skill (well,no doubt blocking) but does everything well.

    I actually think Hines' receiving skills are MASSIVELY underrated. That catch he made last week where he juggled a poorly thrown ball over his head is one example of what he routinely does as a WR. I always think of that catch he made against the Seahawks where caught the ball inches off the ground with his fingertips and just kept running. Awesome play in the biggest game a player can play in. Ward does it all better than most WR's and he's CLUTCH in the big games and when the game is on the line. I honestly can't think of too many WR's outside of Jerry Rice who consistently step it up and become clutch when the game is on the line. Randy Moss? Nope. Terrell Owens? Nope. ****ing love the guy and as far as I'm concerned he's a future HOF'er.

    Not fast.(yet can get open). Not big(yet can go over the middle). Blocks like a maniac( don't underestimate the blocks, even the blocks he doesn't throw have DB's and LB's heads on a swivel. They know it could come at any time.). A true leader on and off the field. I'll take a couple more of him if you please.

    Emotional (i.e. cries at times)... Dirty player (as voted by his peers, not my opinion)... Resilient (still producing at his age)... Physical (just ask the Bengals and Ravens secondary)...

    ... "Define Hines"...

    ... A great Steeler, and maybe one of the greatest of all time on the team by the time he's done.

    Definitely one of my favorites, and glad he's playing for the "good guys".

    This is the total truth. When Hines came to the Steelers I would scream at the TV for Cowher to put him in the game. I knew from the moment I saw his playing abilities that he at the time was the best receiver on the team. I can't remember what other receivers were on the team and starting ahead of him but, Hines was better just the little game time that I saw of him. Was it Charles Johnson or that one tall receiver we had that never got better from game to game and season to season dang, I can't remember his name. Not Plaxico and for sure not Troy Edwards, not very smart and short.
    Two Troys on the team, how about that. Anyway when the Steelers drafted Troy I was ticked because I thought they wasted a number one draft pick for a receiver when Hines could have been thee guy at the time. We actually did waste a draft pick on Edwards.

    We've been through so many receivers over the years but Hines has been the constant.
    I still can't place Hines in a catergory or compare him to another well known receiver but, I guess that is what makes him special. I have 100% no doubt that Hines doesn't get the credit and praise that he deserves when they speak of big time receivers.
    Everyone talks about the tall lanky receivers, the fast receivers, the acrobatic receivers, the mouthy receivers and the giant money recievers and then there is Hines.
    Yeah, Hines to me at times yaks a little too much but I think that personality is something that also makes him a great player.
    Guys used to get ticked that Hines would talk about trying real hard, working hard, not being a number one pick, not given the starting position for a couple of three years but, I knew where he was coming from. Nothing was handed to him, he has not one speacial talent or something that you automatically connect with him like some other receiver.
    I think he is just a guy with average abilities that tries so darn hard that, he overcomes and gets the job done.

    Simple, but yet a true statement. Hines Ward (a football player at the we position) is the best all-around WR to EVER play in the NFL. Look at his stats, which have come on a power running team for a majority of his career. Look at who his quarterbacks have been until Ben got here. There is not a receiver in the league I would take over Hines. For me, the best catch I have seen him make, was down near the goal line against the Jags in '99. He just picked it inches off the turf too, on a 4th and 23.

    Agreed.

    Pros-One of the greatest possession receivers(if not the greatest) of all time.Tough as nails.Glad that he will retire a Steeler and should DEFINITELY be in the HoF.


    Cons-needs to keep his mouth shut.Opens it at the worst times

    One simple word tells me everything I want to know about him. WINNER

    I'll take 2 or 3 more of him any day of the week (and twice on Sundays as the saying goes. )

    Intelligent. He knows his enemy as he knows himself.

    Fearless. Throws himself into the spot the QB needs to throw even if it means getting cut in two and still holding on to the ball and laughing as he gets up.

    He comes from samurai stock after all.

    The best blocking receiver in the history of the NFL.

    Great possession receiver.

    First ballot HOF'r

    If you put three of him on the field, your passing game is unstoppable.
