View Full Version : The Player With Many Names: A Tribute to Verron Haynes

Ah, Verron Haynes. That guy who gets so little attention the announcers don't even know his name. Is it Verron Haynes? How about Verron Hayes? Or maybe it's Vernon Haynes. Or Vernon Hayes. I think I even heard him called Vernon Harrison once. Ah, Verron, you were a good man. Never in the spotlight, always dutifully blocking on 3rd down, occasionally catching a pass or (gasp!) getting a carry. Your versatility was your greatest strength, so I guess it's appropriate that you have so many different names. I was saddened by your release from the Steelers, and hope you will have success wherever you go, including hopefully back here in Pittsburgh. So, Verron, Vernon, Haynes, Hayes, whatever your name is, I salute you!

(There Capt, you happy now? Let's give the man some love.) :tt02:

Injury prone fits! He was a good runner when he came in healthy, in relief , when the defense was tired!

I like Verron, the dude was a team player and he loved the fans and Pittsburgh. You could always see him out on the field during pregame warmups dancing and gettin down on the field just having a good ole time.

He was injury prone but he was a good guy and was able to play FB as well as RB.
