Maybe it's just me, but with the physical pounding he has taken over his career, and his injury list starting to mount, I'd be surprised if we get 40 games out of him over the length of that contract.http://www.nfl.com/players/hinesward/profile?id=WAR179227
Hines started 16 games in 2008, perhaps the most brutal physical test he's faced yet. He started every playoff game, and was only injured in a freak twist of his knee making a great play. And he STILL played in the SB.
2008 - 16 games
2007 - 13 games
2006 - 14 games
2005 - 15 games
2004 - 16 games
40 games over the course of the contract? I'll take the over. Even if we just get 40 games, I'm satisfied with that.
