Hines Ward to retire?

Did Hines Ward play his last game? It appears he might have. A Steelers player texted to me the expectations around the team was that Ward would soon announce his retirement. That doesn't mean it's set he will. That means some Steelers players believe it which means it's likely to happen.

Ward is a different sort of dude. He could decide to hang on for one more year. But for the moment that doesn't seem to be the case.

Ward is clearly done physically. He just doesn't have the burst he once did. He was held without a catch against the Broncos and has become an afterthought in the Pittsburgh offense.

Yet, to me, he's a sure Hall of Famer. He became only the eighth wide receiver to reach 1,000 catches, had a lengthy and productive career, and won championships. He was one of the toughest receivers I've ever seen.

And it appears we've seen the last of Ward in the NFL.

HEY Arm:

  I know you know your smack talk and bringing Rice and Ward in the same sentence is like bringing Larry Bird and Manute Bol into the mix, Don't ever and I am being polite here, put Hines Ward in the same sentence with Rice.

Like I have been saying all along, until Branch and/or Carter get in, Hines Ward should not even be mentioned for the Hall...

BTW I hope your Pats are ready for my Ravens in 2 weeks, I can't wait til they come up to Foxboro, (will always be that to me) and smack that arss$$$$$eeee once again in the playoffs
