I take it as the DB are fighting hard for a starting job. I don't see a problem with it. I like the fact that Reid held onto the ball both times. Maybe we found someone who can hold onto a punt. I understand where Hines is coming from, he's sticking up for his fellow WR. But it's the coaching staffs call on when to put a stop to it not his.

"It's been happening all day," Ward complained, still agitated even after catching extra passes following the nearly two-hour practice. "Yeah, you do it one time, but you don't let it keep happening and happening. If the coaches ain't going to stay anything about it, then hell, maybe a player has to stay something about it. Let's be smart, we're on the same team, we're not the opponent."
No offense to 'coach' Hines Ward, but he already has his starting job and money in the bank. It's pretty easy for him to tell Anthony Smith to calm it down. Hit away Anthony, hit away and get that starting job.

Quote:
"It's competitive and that's what training camp is about," Tomlin said. "You'd much rather say 'Whoa' than 'Sic 'em,' So we're having to say 'Whoa' a little bit. The main thing is to stay professional and leave it on the grass."

"I know at times tempers are going to flare," Tomlin said. "Part of building this team is understanding and controlling our emotions, because they're going to flare on Sundays in the fall. It's also showing your ability to take some blows and catch some balls and bounce back. Willie Reid is distinguishing himself because of some of the things that are happening."
Thank you coach Tomlin. After witnessing last year's team, I'll take this type of play over over a soft, complacent team while watching them get physically dominated by the Jags and Ravens. Hines Ward has already played the part of owner when he mildly (compared to Faneca) voiced his displeasure with the Tomlin hiring. Then he complained about the Steelers letting Porter walk and now he's playing head coach during training camp.

I'll make this one easy for Hines Ward.....

Dan Rooney II = Owner

Mike Tomlin = Coach

Hines Ward = Player

To some extent I see the receivers' point of view, but at the same time this is their dress rehearsal for the season. You need to learn how to take a hit and hold on to the ball, and I don't want that happening during game time. I'd like to know before we play Cleveland who can't hold on to the ball.

I do like the attitude of the DBs though.

I think it's also worth noting that according to FSN Pittsburgh, Reid was talking trash on the defense before Smith decided to lay him out.

As long as nobody gets injured out of it, I have no problems with it. Nice to hear the fire is back.

I didn't see this thread originally - seems to be on the same subject as the linked.

I love the intensity at TC this season and kudos to Tomlin suggesting that the guys work out their issues amongst themselves. I believe if things would get totally out of hand or some cheap shots were thrown, Tomlin would step to the guilty parties in a heartbeat.

I love Hines dearly, but c'mon - shut your yap and take those hits like a pro WR instead of whining. Whaddya want - a love tap? Come the regular season, you're more than likely going to take much harder hits than those you are receiving by your teammates in TC.

I see Hine's point.....He just doesn't want one of our guys to get hurt during practice....But at the same time I'm glad Tomlin isn't telling the DB's to lay off.........Let the guys work it out......Nothing wrong with Hines letting the DB's know they're not facing the Ravens WR's in practice...lol

I just can't wait until Aug. 5th....I feel sorry for Colston,Henderson and the rest of the Saints WR core....If Smith is blasting his own team mates like this....What is he going to do to the WRs on the other team?lol
