    Wow, those are very impressive stats. Lets hope Ben can have that type of domination for the next 10 years and include similar stats in playoff games!

    You just can't say enough about how much Hines means to this team regardless of how many catches he has in a game. Even when he's not getting all the passes he's down there throwing blocks or selling the play and clearing his man out which many times that's a double team.

    Ben just has this thing with playing vs Ohio teams that always brings out the best in him and considering the division we play in that's a very good thing.
