    The Ward Watch is over, Hines reaches 1,000 career receptions.

    We all knew sooner or later it was going to happen, the Steelers were not going to let Hines get out of this final game without reaching 1000 catches for his career.

    A very uneventful, lack luster, record setting catch for Hines off a shovel pass from Ben for minus 3 yds. After that play, Hines wasn't heard from again in the game. I think this was how we all figured it was going to play out. Get Hines into the game, get him his catches one way or the other, and then move on with life.

    Be that as it may, Hines deserves huge congrats for hitting this final big milestone of his career. A well deserved honor for, as of now, the greatest Steelers wide receiver of all time.

    Yeah this has been a topic of debate this season, especially since the bye week. I'm glad it's over now. He's earned his spot in Steelers and NFL history. Anything else he gets before his career is over is just a bonus now.

    I'm not so sure. I think he would have said so if it was gonna be that way. My hope is that he has an amazing post season!

    Compared to superstars receiver Wallace's 1 catch for. a whole 11 yards. Sad but true.

    BTW, congrats to Hines one of the best ever to wear the black and gold.

    Nice to see Ward get the milestone. Would have sucked if he had to sign somewhere else to pursue it. Hopefully the Steelers can help him win a third ring this year and he can just retire a Steeler.
