If someone did that to Troy, you'd call it a cheap shot.
actually NO. if that happened to Troy,

I'd say, "Troy, you need to mind your surroundings. This is football son, and if your eyes are on a ball carrier you better watch out for unsuspecting blocks, or else risk getting knocked out!" But you figure Football Players would know that by now?

Bottom line is thats how the game was played for decades untill Comish Gaydell started changing the rules for "player safety". (yea right)

Hell yea, you play the game like a tough SOB to knock someone out! When Hines would do that, it would send a message to the rest of the team of the physicality of which he and this team were going to play with all night .(something the team has lacked now that he's gone)

C'mon man, he never "AIMED" for the head. Aiming for the head straight up is a cheap shot.

You want dirty? Donkey Cong SUH stomping all over a defenseless player on the ground way after a play, DIRTY.

Cortland Finnegan throwing punches at another players head after the whistle. DIRTY.

Hines ward. NOT DIRTY

Antonio Brown, a little cocky after plays, yes. A proud player, somewhat. Should that cause him to be despised or labled like Hines as Dirty? HELL NO.

Hines' helmet did hit Reed's, because he lowered it.

Point is Brown needs to worry about scoring touchdowns every game and doing what he is paid to do. Not getting up after every 1st down catch walking forward 10 yards holding ball out dropping it then looking at the crowd then back to the huddle.


HEath Miller is one of my favorite Steelers FOR THIS reason. Dude gets a touchdown he smiles and hits helmets with teammates and he's done. Class act.

i.e., try to hurt them so they don't finish the game. I think that's what I initially stated when someone said Hines didn't do that.

Not sure how anyone can watch that video and say Hines did not lower his helmet and put it upside Reed's.

I recall AB catching a deep pass on a 3 and 19 in a playoff game against the ravens to sustain a drive and milk the clock, and then catching another third down pass against the jets in the championship game the following week, also to run the clock down. Those are pretty big games to me. So what do YOU call them?

Besides, receivers dont "win" games, at the end of the day, they need the QB who makes the decisions and hard throws to them dont they?

Speculation? Is that not allowed here? Or do I have to preface it with "IMHO" at all times?

The dumbest part of the play was made by Curtis Brown who made the illegal block 20 yards after Antonio ran by him. For the record the TD would have counted and the kickoff would have been from the 20.

How did this go from taunting to Hines Ward being a dirty player?
