Default Ward still the #1 WR option?

Looks like Ward is still the #1 WR after speculation that Holmes might take that spot this year. Is his wrist doing better? He doesn’t seem to be himself since having the good game 1 against the Titans.

Ward deserves the #1 spot regardless who has better stats or whatever. He has been a Steeler all his career passing the 10,000 yards mark with all the all time records. Also since he won't be in the league much longer I expect Ward to retire still with that number 1 spot in hand. He is clutch and our best hands down.

He sure the hell looks like the #1 receiver. He's been putting up about 100 yards a week except for the Chicago monsoon-season game. This may be the best I've seen him in quite a while. He seriously looks like he could keep playing until he's 45 at this rate.

"To be da man, you gotta beat da man! Wooo!"

Holmes isn't quite there yet...he's showing signs and is close, but not yet.

IMO, Hines plays a WR role in our offense that no other WR on our roster can play.

That is why I cringe on the day he retires.

Along with Ben, he is the heart and soul of our offense.

We have 1a and 1b with Holmes and Ward. Either could be the top option any given week.

Ward and holmes play different positions. They are both #1 at their position. Not sure what the question is.
