    During Bettis's last year he was productive as a RB. Ward was not productive this year, when he was in the game. Ben seems to have found new favorites and this kills me to say it but Hines's time is now. He has no future with this team as a 5th WR, he's not gonna play ST and the amount of money he makes is the straw breaking the camel's back. He's not gonna come back for significantly less money and unless he can re gain the ability to get open ,it would be worse to see him see on the bench all year!!

    He's like the Holyfield of football. He won't retire until he wins another championship. Unlike Holyfield, i believe Hines will get one.

    Plain and simple..it's time for Ward to quit.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    I really could care less whether Hines stay or not. At the very least he's a good presence to have on the sidelines. Like many have said, he will have to take a significant paycut to stay on the team, and I think he will. He knows he's not a #1 receiver anymore.

    That being said, I don't think he'll get that 3rd superbowl he's looking for, so at some point he'll have to retire without it. I feel like this might have been our last year with a real shot at the suberbowl for a while and the next few years will be rebuilding years. Hines won't make it past that rebuilding stage.

    It's time to let the man go. Just because he had some good years in your uniform doesn't mean you owe him anything. I love hines but it's time we move forward and think about the FUTURE when it comes to this football team. I don't mind having 88, 84, 17, and 89(?) as our top 4. 86 is just not needed at this point.

    If he wants to play somewhere else why not? Don't worry, we'll have one-trick-pony-Wallace all of next year.

    Hines should leave the team and let Ben have his toys.

    Glad to hear Hines wants to stay. I hope that whatever is necessary to make that happen can be done quickly and without drama. I'd love to see him come back in the best physical condition possible and be an asset to the team on the field as well as mentoring the younger guys. I want to see him go out great.

    Lots of reports coming in now that even though Hines doesn't want to retire, the Steelers may not want to keep him, so he could be going somewhere else. I couldn't imagine Hines playing in any other uniform, and I hope he decides not to play for another team. I feel like it would tarnish his reputation forever.
