With this past Thursdays performance Ward is now 4 gms behind John Stallworth for most 100 yd receiving games all-time Stallworth has 25.

wow. im a little disappointed with that number. i woulda guessed atleast 40. i know its our offensive style and he has usually been the #2, but thats averaging less than 3 a year for his entire career.

I would have guessed more too. I thought he has passed Stallworth on every list.

25 100 yard games, and one rule change because he is to rough on the opponents defense.

he will one day hold every steeler recieving record, and there will be a spot in the HOF waiting for him

Considerirng we've been a running team for most of the years of his career it's still pretty good imo. Hines is the best receiver Steelers have ever had no matter what the record books say.

I would like to see Ward get the record this year he has been a great receiver for the Steelers and will be long remembered when he retires. Good luck Ward on getting that record.

Ward should pass that record this season if Ben and the offense become more passed based and Ben is chucking the ball for 325 yards everygame.

considering micheal irvan had 11 , 100 yd games in "95" , and jerry rice had 51 carrear 100 yd games... its not that impressive at all.

amazing considering he had Kordell/Maddox as his QB for a while.

I was puzzled by that too, so I looked it up. If you check out how many games he has with like 8 catches and 75-99 yards, there are a TON of those. Guess it's just further evidence that he's not the kind of guy that always puts up OMG flashy numbers and wins all kinds of awards, just gets the job done.

Hines Ward continues to amaze me. Will this guy ever slow down :chuckle: When he is finished Ward should hold all Steelers WR records and of course be enshrined in the HOF one day!

On the Steelers: Ward approaches 10,000 yards
Friday, September 18, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Ben Roethlisberger, trying to shoot a fist-sized basketball into a garbage can in the Steelers' locker room yesterday, stopped and popped at the top of the key, which happened to be within earshot of Hines Ward's locker.

"One seventeen is the magic number!" Ward said, his tone slightly higher.

"For what?" Roethlisberger replied as he dropped another into the bucket. "I don't need that many yards."

Ward shook his head and laughed, "Don't worry about it, you'll find out."

Soon enough, perhaps Sunday, Ward will catch passes worth another 117 yards, and that will put him in yet another exclusive club, where the required membership fee is 10,000 yards receiving. here are 31 receivers in NFL history who have reached that number, and Ward relishes becoming No. 32.

"That's a big deal," Ward said, almost to himself. "Ten thousand yards? That speaks volumes. When I first came into the league, there was no way 10,000 yards, 800 catches was a goal. I just wanted to play."

He has 808 receptions after the most productive opener of his career when he caught eight passes for 103 yards, the only time he has hit 100 in an opener in his 12 seasons.

"Ten thousand yards! Not too many people in this league can say they caught 10,000 yards," Ward said. "Catching 10,000 yards here is like catching 12,000 somewhere else."

He has caught them from seven starting quarterbacks -- Kordell Stewart, Mike Tomczak, Kent Graham, Tommy Maddox, Charlie Batch, Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich -- plus two others, Jerome Bettis and Antwaan Randle El.

"Jerome threw me a touchdown pass in Three Rivers on a halfback pass and, of course, Randle El threw me a touchdown in the Super Bowl."

That last one did not wind up in the hands of a fan wearing a Steelers No. 86 jersey, as so many other of his touchdown receptions have. Ward kept that one, and it holds a prized spot in his trophy case. The ball that he uses to cover his 10,000th yard will have a similar spot.

His climb up the wide-receiver charts while playing in mostly a run-oriented offense is remarkable, and while No. 32 on the NFL all-time list might not seem impressive, he can shoot up quickly.

If he gets another 1,000 yards this season, he can approach the top 20 all time, and if he gets another 1,000 in 2010 he can approach the top 15 -- although there are active players ahead of him such as Joey Galloway, Tony Gonzalez and Torry Holt.

But Ward has so much more than those players -- two Super Bowl rings and a Super Bowl MVP. Not bad on a franchise that celebrates Super Bowls and traditionally gets there on the ground.

Well, a few seasons of Kordell throwing to you, I mean into the ground in front of you and over your head, will do that to any WR.
