    Will Hines reach 1000 receptions in a Steelers uniform

    Hines needs 19 more to be the fifth player in NFL history to reach that milestone. Some reports say he won't get the chance now with his reduced role

    I honestly don't think he will because of the other *new stars* on the receiving core...I guess after 14 years of service, its business as usual with the Stillers.

    I think we a descent lead we should give him a chance but 3 cathes a game may be a bit much to ask. would love to see Hines as our WR coach next season

    Nineteen catches over the next 6 regular season games is about 3 catches per game so in theory it's definitely possible. If you figure in the Steelers chances to make the post season then it becomes more of a possibility.

    I would certainly like to think he's going to get it while he's still a Steeler, it would be a travesty if he didn't. You don't want to force receptions at the expense of winning a game and Tomlin certainly wouldn't do that but I would imagine he'll get playing time the rest of the way out and we can just hope he makes it.

    Not ruling him out,football has become a game of who is the healthiest.It's a good chance someone on the reciever corps will miss some time (exspecially in the playoffs) due to injury.. so even in a diminished role,he may still have a chance.

    I say he gets it. Even with his diminished role, the Steelers know he's so close so they'll make sure he gets enough catches . . . . assuming he's healthy.

    Hines is still a good 3rd down receiver, so getting him some time shouldn't be a problem.

    I think he'll get to 1000... 3 catches a game, he might have games with 1 catch, but some games he comes out of no where with 6 catches.

    He had 7 catches against the Titans this year. Only game with 6 or more this year though.

    Before Sanders and Cotchery were both 100%. Hines can still get some catches but doesnt get seperation.

    To his advantage, the young guys are really starting to take notice of the other teams, so Hines may be able to get some one on ones with LBs.

    To his disadvantage, we cant afford another loss at this point, so his 1000 catches are not high on the priority list.
