Team needs receivers that can get separation, out run their guy....get open.

They don't need a guy that can block really well playing wideout.

Ward has knowledge, but this is professional football. He has never been quick, and that's even more true now.

Is he really a hall of famer? I believe he is, but do you think the voters will think he will?
Look at this era of receivers, you have Moss, Owens, Harrison. Plus you can put Isaac Bruce and Isaac Bruce on the list, hell, even Cris Carter hasn't made it.

Getting open hasn't been a problem for him. He could find that one spot in the Zone that was open. I think he has alot let in the tank. He will probable be with wiz in steelers west with peyton throwing him the ball.

Let's not be bitter or "ashamed" and think the Steelers should cut off their nose to spite their face.

Its business that's all just business. Sad to see him go he will go down as one of the all time Steeler Greats. Time waits for no man and it catches all of us.
