Default Ward vs Owens

They were just doing some updates on the NFL Network and talking about how T.O hamstring and how it's overshadowed another wide receivers hamstring. Adam went on to say that all summer long all we've heard about is TO's hamstring and at the same time Ward the steelers wide receiver and the MVP of the last superbowl has missed just as much practice time but we haven't heard anything at all about Wards conditon,

Essentially that could be because Ward hasn't ridden in the Tour 'de France in the Tour Latrobe by Steelers Training camp. There have been no antics by Ward no misbehaving no nothing he has just shown up to practice done his rehab doing EXACTLY what he is supposed to do.

Then they went on to say (chuckling) that Ward doesn't have a book, doesn't have a reality show so it could be the reason why he's not getting that much attention.

That pretty much says it all

or

Ward.

As much as I like Owens as a receiver...I couldn't pass on Ward's heart and dedication.

Well if TO had Ward's attitude and work ethic. I would say TO hands down. But he doesn't so Hines Ward all the way.

I'd go with Ward. Although TO is the better pure pass catcher, Ward's blocking skills are vital to our offense.

He's not an attention seeking douche bag, that's why he hasn't gotten the media coverage.

ward is the most underrated reciever in the league, i think he is just plain underrated cause he isnt black, well....this is what i mean, he can jump but not high, he can run but not fast, he can talk but not talk trash. he isnt as athletic as chad johnson or t.o. but he proves what he can do on the field. yeah he didnt get much to work with last year but he achieved great things last season, 14+ yards per catch, and 4.7 after the catch. some recievers in the league have a 15+ yards per catch but only cause the qb only throws bombs to the reciever. i think he is the #2 reciever in the league behind randy moss, but #1 overall. randy has the hands of ward but more athletic, no other reciever has the hands of ward and moss.

the thing here is owens has been in the west coast offense his whole career and is moving to a completely different scheme. before camp started parcells warned of this and said owens had alot to learn and alot to catch up on.

ward knows the playbook and system and just needs to get up to game speed. he wont be making mistakes on the field by not practicing.
