Jets think Hines Ward is rather dirty

In the debate about whether Steelers WR Hines Ward is a tough, gritty, blue-collar WR who makes hard, but clean blocks on defenders or a dirty, cowardly head hunter, I usually lean toward the former.

I’m pretty sure a wide variety of players – like Jets LB Bart Scott, Ravens S Ed Reed and Bengals LB Keith Rivers, all of whom have been hammered by Ward – would disagree with my assessment.

You can add Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine to the list.

“Our guys I think called him the toughest guy in the league when nobody’s looking,” Pettine said, via ESPN New York.

Considering Ward was voted by his peers in Sports Illustrated as the dirtiest player in the league, Pettine’s comment might have some merit. That doesn’t mean the “tough, gritty, blue collar” thing is wrong, though.

“That works for them,” Pettine said. “He’s kind of the spark that gets them going and we are well aware of it.”

 KNEW THIS WAS COMING RIGHT?  THESE NY JETS CAN'T HELP THE DIARRHEA OF THE MOUTH,  EVEN THOUGH THE GAME PLAN WAS TO KILL THE STEELERS WITH KINDNESS.  CROMARTIE AND THE REST OF THESE CLOWNS KNOW ONLY ONE WAY,  THE ZERO CLASS WAY.  THIS TIME I THINK THEY ARE TALKING SMACK TO THE WRONG GUY.  I CAN ONLY HOPE THAT THE "DIRTY" HINES WARD PUTS A HELMET IN THE LOUD MOUTHS EARHOLE,  AND THE JETS DONT SNIFF SUPERBOWL FOR ANOTHER 40 YEARS..

Maybe one of the Jet coaches can trip Hines Ward when he's near the sideline and not looking. No, the Jet's coaches wouldn't do that, would they? Get a life Jet's players, you can do your talking next week when you're at home.

Yeah, just like them eastside boys, talking smack on a 190 lbs receiver for his dirty plays.  Why don't they talk about Harrison??  Cause they don't want to piss off the guy that will take their heads off.  Funny, I think he's going to do it anyway.

I love the idea earlier of Cro stuffing his clown face inside and have Bart drop him cold.  cheap, dirty steelers will have their tales between their legs.  dumbo, stumbling drunk big ben will probably throw a high ball over the middle for Hines just to see him get his bell rattled... then he go brag to some backwoods unsuspecting girl before pawing her like the mongrel he is.
