Hines Ward to retire?

Posted on: January 9, 2012 10:14 am
 

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.

six superbowls and there is no better reciever the steelers have seen. He played the game the way it should have been. All the haters are fools just mad he helped steelers beat their shitty teams.

To all you Hines bashers. There is not a better blocking and clutch reciever than Hines Ward. He will definetly be in the HOF. He is a real class act, never showed up an opponent and has always shown his heart in his many charities. He will always be a CHAMPION!

One of the best blocking wide reciever to ever walk on the field. It was a pleasure watching him play, jump up after plays with that smile, and always challenge opponents to get back to the line and play. The game will certainly miss him.
