Default Ward Trashes Big Ben

I think you all are in a little more trouble than you might want to believe. Not only did you lose to the Ravens, but your locker room situation is simmering to a boil. I am sure most of you probably saw the interview before the game where Hines Ward ripped Big Ben, saying that half the locker room is upset with Ben for not playing in this important game. He said "most of us have played after a concussion" and he was not sure why Ben was not playing, questioning his toughness. OUCH.

Hope you all can right the ship in time to make the playoffs. Would love to play you again and turn the sweep into a triple play!

Personally, I do not blame Big Ben for not playing. Concussions are nothing to mess with and if I recall, he has had about six of them. If he took another blow tonight, he could be messing with his career and possibly his quality of life when he gets older.

Was Hines questioning Ben, or questioning Tomlin's decision to not let Ben play?

Looks like it's gonna cause some drama either way.....

Well, for team in "turmoil", it took you home field and deep into OT to beat us....with a 3rd string QB playing and our best defensive player on the bench.

We will get healthy and be much, much better by seasons end...that was about the best the Rats could muster...the ravens are nothing to rave about....

For one, the way the Ravens played yesterday...their playoff chances are a lot slimmer than the Steelers playoff chances. Had either Ben or Troy been in that game, it never would have gone to OT...and I think any rational Ravens fan knows that.

As for what Ward said about Ben, I think he should have held his tongue...it doesn't make WARD look good, especially when it was reported early in the game that Ben basically begged to play last night (Tomlin's words, not Ben's) but was told no by Tomlin. But I don't expect you to take that little tidbit into consideration.

And I think you're a giant puss for disappearing last year during your 4-11-1 campaign only to show up here and talk shit this year.

You know, I've been going over what Ward said and it's.....................just not really that big of a deal.

Wow, so since when did V start thinking the Baltimore Sun is the most reliable resource on what goes on between the Steelers players?

That's NOT what Hines said. He said "the locker room was 50/50 on whether Ben should play or not". There was nothing said about anyone in that locker room being upset. Get your story straight before you come here making false statements.

On a positive note, at least Hines didn't punch one of the coaches at halftime to express his dismay.

Don't listen to the media overblowing situations as usual.

This is football. If you have never played football you would not understand what goes on in a locker room. In an NFL locker room if a player says he is not playing because he has a headache, will get laughed at, teased, and ragged on. I'm sure Ward was not the only one who said something.

Big Ben should have played. Each year the NFL becomes more of a whoose. By the year 2020, the NFL will become the NFFL (National Flag Football League).

Football involves playing through injuries. Ward is not wrong for commenting. He knew they would lose with Dixon being thrown into the Lions Den.
