Lol I watch enough games to know that Keyshawn is more physical....maybe you should pull your head out your ass and see the light. Not everyone wearing a Steeler jersey is God.....hell its not like youre talkin bad about Ward if you admit it either....so just come forth and type the truth. I mean honestly I saw Keyshawn give an Eagles saftey a concussion who tried laying a big hit on him.....and Key was still standin and goin for extra yards. Ward flew like a bitch when he got popped by Lynch but he did get back up......but taking a hit doesnt mean you play more physical.....just letting you know

(Key caught 71 balls for 6 TDs......and wadda ya know inside the Redzone he caught 11 balls for 6 TDs.)

See theres still more things to being a physical WR than blocking and taking a hit.....Both of them are good blockers but Ward is a better blocker. I just think Key takes more hits and knows hes going to when he catches the ball. Hes always catching the ball over the middle in traffic and what not......... it dont matter though

Maybe......I pretty much contradicted myself in the last post lol. Didnt catch it till now but oh well....what I was getting at is Keyshawn is a WR who goes over the middle on the regular and takes a beating every game. I know he goes over the middle more than Ward

Maybe I'm biased, but in my opinion Hines Ward is the toughest WR in the league. I can't count how many times I have heard former and current players and sports analysts state the exact same.

Personally, you couldn't pay me to take Keyshawn Johnson. After his little stint in Tampa, my opinion of the guy was set.

His mouth and his attitude is not worth it in my book. Ward or no Ward. In my opinion, for as much as the guy talks, his play doesn't come near backing it up.

Sorry man I hate to beat on you, cause i left the other board for this very reason. I'll just say, Keyshawn is a little bitch and in no way more physical than Hines. Perfect example of this, mid season game Bledsoe led Johnson into a rolled corner and he came to the sideline yelling and cursing Drew out because he led him into a hit.

If you've seen enough steelers football you would know as every other person does who regards Hines Ward as the most physical reciever in the game, that he looks for this sort of contact. I've seen Hines lay out a LINEBACKER before, yes thats right, a linebacker with a block. Keyshawn is afraid of contact from a corner.



Big difference. And he is overrated. He got all his star power from being a versatile WR with the New York Jets and that was nearly a decade ago. He was a problem child in Tampa, hence his own head coach banned him from the team. And he and his QB in Dallas had a rocky relationship, not to mention he asked for more money he didn't deserve... and so he finds himself in free agency, but lucky for us steelers fans he'll never find himself in Black N' Gold.

Not a peep? wasn't it Ol' No. 19 who was on film screaming at Bledsoe last season?

I'm missing something here. What part of the typical Steelers off-season equation does Keyshawn fit into? What makes you think this guy is even remotely cut of the Steelers ilk? He wouldn't fit in, period. They don't sign just anyone from free agency, especially not at a position they don't need to fill immediately. They already signed Wilson to solid No. 2 receiver money just last year. I would be shocked and amazed if the Steelers were even listed as being even remotely interested in bringing him in.

In fact, I'm surprised this is even being discussed like it's a possibility.
