    Hines Ward is a a hell of a football player. Been proving it on Sundays for a long time. I know a lot of people don’t care for him, but most of them are the ones he has knocked on their asses. Hines is not chicken shit, and scared of contact like most receivers in the league. This is the NFL, gotta keep your head on a swivel, or risk getting it knocked off. Here We Go Steelers!!!

    Faulk on the NFL channel last night didded Hines also. Faulk said the Jets could cover Hines with a line backer as slow as he is. I would love to see them try that!

    Faulk dislikes the Steeler’s…why?
