How can you NOT play hard and deck people when you have Hines Ward to look up to?

I remember reading how when Jason Kidd was still playing basketball in college, he was a terrible 3-point shooter, and that was the one complaint anyone had about his game.

Then someone made him see an eye doctor, and they found out he basically couldn't see anything clearly more than 15 feet away from him. He just said something like, "Oh. I just thought that's how everything was supposed to look. This is much better now."

So let me get this right... the receivers can run over the safeties... but the safeties can't hit the receivers??

Well isn't blocking and tackling two different things?

He wasn't blocking... he had the ball.

That's understandable.... if Ward was impressed. A good block always impresses Ward.

How often do you hear of rookies taking on such a level of maturity? It seems to me that Sweed (and Mendenhall for that matter) have brought a new level of maturity and expectation to the Steelers organization.

I can't wait to see what kind of production this leads to on the field.

Wow, that is so sweet, Sweed.

Perhaps Sweed will get LASIK surgery or something down the road. Didn't a rookie WR do that last year? I think it was Dwayne Bowe or somebody.

I agree. And I was also thinking about Lasik as well, when i was reading it.
