Hines doesn’t deserve it. He was a good player and that’s it. He was never a game changing #1 WR. And yeah, he was really dirty and I hated his constant Joker face. The media found it so cute...I found it creepy.The Hall loves them some Steelers. Hines Ward is textbook Hall of Very Good and has a reputation for being dirty almost as much as Rodney Harrison - but i bet Ward will get in anyway. LOL
Amazing how few Patriots are getting in despite winning 6 titles. Maybe it's the BB factor.
You know what REALLY pisses me off is that Stanley Morgan isn't among that list. Ward, Smith, and Johnson were all very good WR's, so was Morgan, and while he didn't rack up the same yardage as those 3 you have to consider that they played in different eras. DB's had much more leeway to be physical with WR's than they did in the late 90's and early 2000's, even before the Polian intervention over protected QB's and WR's.
Just to stats to make my point further. Morgan AVERAGED close to TWENTY ypc (19.4). To put it in perspective Ward, Smith and Johnson, all semifinalists averaged either 13 or 14 ypc. Another stat that impressed me, was that over 14 seasons in a far more physical league, the 181 lb Morgan played in 88% of his possible games (188 out of 224)
If Hines Ward deserves to be a HOF semifinalist, then so does Stanley Morgan
I've been on this for years now but Harrison not in is so weak.Rodney was better than Lynch and as good as Dawkins with a better post season showing by far.
Which was not a purposeful dirty hit.
Pats need to stay on top of this stuff. We know the league will try and bury us the minute Tom, Bill and co are out of the game. We'll never be the Steelers in that regard. We deserve to be represented accordingly and need to stay on their azs about this stuff. No team has ever dominated like us and again we absolutely should be represented in the HOF.
I don't believe he went in that low on purpose. Now, whether he could have stopped himself when once he found himself that low is another question. But, I don't believe he went after Green with the idea of causing an injury.lol.. yes it was. It sure as hell was.. the ball was already out of Green's hand before Rodney dove for his knees. There's not a football player that doesn't know something bad will happen when you go for the sides of someone's knee.
