Default Re: Hines Ward: take Pittsburgh's hint, hang 'em up

I don't see why everyone thinks Hines Ward is "done".

He did just fine for us in 2010, and I dont think I am being unreasonable to think a guy does not go from superstar to bench-warmer in one offseason.....you can't eat that many Twinkies.

Ward just does not fit our scheme anymore. We have a stable of fast, agile receivers, and there is no roster space for an aging possession receiver, even one as reliable as Ward.

I wish he would have retired as well, but my call? I say he turns up next year in a Colt's uniform.... Familiarity with Bruce Arians (who has been working wtih Steelers receivers and QBs since 2006), a new system. he could help the Colts mature Andrew Luck and bring him up to speed.
