Mike Tomlin believes that Hines Ward would be in the Hall of Fame if the Steelers had beat the Packers in Super Bowl XLV

The Steelers coach believes the loss to the Packers cost some players more than a title.

Ward spent fourteen seasons in the NFL, all with the Steelers, winning two Super Bowls in that span. He currently sits 27th all-time in receiving yards with 12,083, which is more than a handful of Hall of Famers.According to Tomlin, what made that loss so devastating was that the team was on the verge of being a dynasty. The Steelers had a chance to win their third title in six seasons, with many of the same players being on the team throughout.

“That was the third one this collective had been to in about five years,” he said. “So we was on that type of tip, that legacy, that football immortality.”

Tomlin is way wrong. Hines Ward doesn't belong in the HOF. Sterling Sharpe isn't in... Andre Rison isn't in... Neither of the Marks from the Dolphins isn't in... And Torry Holt, the leading receiver (yards & catches) from the 2000s isn't in yet. When is Ward supposed to get in? I actually agree; he should definitely be in the NFLHOF

He should be in. He still should be there He and Sterling Sharpe should be in the HOF.
