Default Ward moves past Bettis on Steelers' touchdown list

Ward moves past Bettis on Steelers' touchdown list
http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt...nt_704838.html
By Scott Brown
PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Monday, October 18, 2010

With Jerome Bettis watching from a private box at Heinz Field, Hines Ward surpassed the former Steelers' great in career touchdowns Sunday afternoon.

Ward's 8-yard scoring reception in the third quarter gave him 81 touchdowns as a Steeler and moved him into sole possession of second place on the team's all-time list.

The only player ahead of Ward is Pro Football Hall of Famer Franco Harris, who scored 100 touchdowns for the Steelers from 1972-83.

"I'm going to let Franco be," Ward said following the Steelers' 28-10 win against the Cleveland Browns. "Even if I came close, you can't pass Franco. He's got a statue at the airport."

Ward holds most of the Steelers' major receiving records and yesterday he moved into fourth place on the NFL's list for consecutive games with at least one catch.

Ward's streak is at 183, and he moved past Hall of Famer Art Monk.

His touchdown catch -- one of five receptions he had against the Browns -- was vintage Ward.

He caught a Ben Roethlisberger pass near the 5-yard line and muscle his way into the end zone -- and past Bettis, his former teammate.

"He's somebody who I idolized growing up and was a mentor to me since I've been in the league," Ward said of Bettis. "Surpassing him is a great feeling."

QUOTABLE

"That's what defense is about, running to the ball and being physical. The biggest thing to me about the play on Cribbs is where James comes from. He's the backside end and to come that far to make that play, that's impressive. You're talking about a guy that's a defensive MVP, a Pro Bowler and still works like that and still finishes plays the way he does."

-- Ryan Clark

Steelers free safety, on the James Harrison hit that knocked Browns' multipurpose threat Josh Cribbs out of the game.

DIGITS

6 -- Consecutive home games in which running back Rashard Mendenhall has had at least one rushing touchdown.

38 -- Games in which quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has posted a passer rating of over 100.

It's going to be a sad day when Ward retires. The man is as ageless as it gets. Did you see his 2nd, 3rd, 4th effort on that TD pass? The dude is straight up WARRIOR. Love Psycho Ward and I know he loves Pittsburgh.

Ward's quote about Franco

I think Ward deserves his own Statue.

He is an all-time great Steeler, but you do know he chooses to live in Atlanta, right?

He lives here during the season, he actually lives not from from my house in a condo near homestead. But if he choses to live in Atlanta where he was born and raised, let him, Pittsburgh isn't the greatest place to live lol. 20-30 inches of snow last winter gave me a pretty good arguement to hate it here lol.

Well, yeah, I don't think telecommuting is really an option for him just yet. Maybe in his next career when he's giving motivational speeches or selling securities or something.
