Not only is he a great athlete, but hes a great teamate, (unlike Plax). Without Ward, we're gonna suffer.
The Steelers had 6 MONTHS to sign him, yet they wait until the very last minute and its so aggravating!
I agree I think that's my biggest gripe about this whole thing. From everything I have seen it looks like there was little negotiating going on. If Hines Ward was infact the number one priority why was there such little talk. I do think Hines and the Steelers will come to an agreement on the contract extension whether Hines takes the current offer or the Steelers offer another one. When? I have no clue. I would like to see it done before camp, but that is seeming less and less likely. I would like to see this settled soon.
