Just remembered a moment that summed up a footballing warrior during last nights game - Hines Ward pulling a hamstring (?) - sucking in a breath, getting taped up - then catching the game tying TD.

Awesome play by an awesome player.

He is a true warrior, I'm glad to see a New England fan acknowledge that

I'm sure had they been able to, Light and Harrison would ahve stayed on the field as well. Both teams played with that playoff mentality.

Look at the numbers Ward puts up compared to the other wr's and then consider that Ward is on a smash mouth run first, run second, what the hell run again football team.
Ward is awesome...

Ward is the toughest WR around,the guy never quits, never gives up, never takes a play off.

I like Ward. I'd love to have him here. But, he isn't a dominant, game breaking, receiver like TO, or Moss, etc. I haven't seen him step up and change the outcome of a big game like a playoff game, and so on. The Patriots don't live in fear of Hines Ward. As someone else pointed out in here today, the Patriots don't scheme for Ward. They keep an eye on him, but they don't believe Hines Ward can beat them like a Moss, or TO can.

Nice call Living. That's why I love that guy. He doesn't give up and is tough. I'm glad to have him on this team.

Hines Ward certainly did what he had to do, sucks the game ended like it did, but Ward showed he is a true warrior!!!!!!!!

You must have missed the Eagles game where TO was dropping passes and really didn't do much for the Eagles. The Steelers have talent spread all over, so not one reciever is holding the passing game togethor. Moss and TO are good WRs, but the team relies on them too much. Honestly, I believe Westbrook is a better reciever then TO. Moss needs more recievers to take some of the coverage off of himself or he'll never be open. My point is that we'd rather have 3 talented guys then one stand out. Ward by no means is overrated, plays with more hear tthen anyone I know, and plays damn good at that.

"The Steelers have talent spread all over, so not one reciever is holding the passing game togethor."

If you shut down the Steelers running game, they lose. So, there has to be a lack of talent somewhere in the passing game.

Hines Ward has the heart the size of Georgia, he is the man. I know very few fans of others teams that dont atleast respect his play. Thanks for pointing it out! Sometimes we over look those type plays and players during bad losses/

Wrong....!!! Hines was the one player the pats schemed up against last year for the championship game. Straight from the patriots mouths after the game in the locker room. I know I am not the only person who watched the after game interviews.

LOL...that's pretty good. Blame Ward, huh? Could it be that we have a young, still developing QB, who, instead of having a year or two on the bench to get up to speed, got just a few games, and responded by ONLY having the greatest rookie QB season ever? Who also showed a marked improvement over his last performance against the Pats? Who probably is nowhere even near realizing his potential? But you in your infinite wisdom of all things football have deemed that Ward is the weak link? Is Overrated? Can't change the outcome of a game?

He very nearly changed the outcome of the game just this last Sunday...I seem to remember him catching a couple TD passes, and I'm pretty sure one of them was for 85 yards...wasn't that the longest catch against the Pats in like 15 years?

And don't try to dump off some sorry shit "Fuck you" response, either. Hines Ward has the ability to not only affect the outcome of a game by catching the ball, he can also do it blocking, and he has no rival in the NFL in that category.

You are, quite simply, completely and utterly wrong this time.

Well said Suit! Our O-line certainly didn't have their best game against the Pats and they'll get it corrected and things will continue to improve. I don't think enough can be said about what Hine's means to this team. I can't believe he even took part responsibility for the STUPID shovel pass from El. Consumate pro!

Im hoping this thread can get back to the original design behind it - the props given to Hines ward by a Patriots fan who can spot a player he would genuinely love to have on his side.

I apologize for not recognizing your compliment. But thankfully he's going to retire with us.
I was definitely one of the many sweating his holdout that welcomed his return!

That's fine and good, and was pretty much summed up in your original post...was the rest of the thread supposed to be all about you?

Then again, it's not your fault that some jackass had to hijack your thread, stating that the best player on our team was overrated...

Nah,

Not about me Suit - what I was saying was that there was were plenty of threads that have, shall we say, a 'competitive' theme to them - I would have liked this one to stay as one where fans can offer props to a player on a rivals team.

That is all

In that case, I've always liked Mike Vrabel, being a Buckeye and all...just wish we had room to keep him on the Steelers...

Nice call Suit - he is another 'Warrior type' for sure.
He is going to be taking alot of the burden of 'defensive captain' this year it seems - there isnt a great deal of experience back there at the moment.

Yeah he's had a great career with the Pats, too bad the Steelers couldn't make the best of him while they had the chance. Great player, glad to see him doing good...
