View Full Version : Ward Not Sweating Payback Hype

I read this on NFL.com tonight. It's pretty funny. Hines blows 'em off and expects another W against the Bungholes. :lol: :lol: :lol:

"I'm not going to change because of the threat somebody is going to get me back," Ward said. "Every game, there's somebody trying to get me. I'll apologize for the guy being out the whole year, Rivers, but there's nothing I can do about it. I'm not going to apologize for the way I play this game. Nobody's going to apologize to me if I get knocked out going over the middle."

Bless his heart, he's a STEELER!

I put odds on Ward breaking another Bengal jaw.

I hope he does. That will put the media back in their place.

Go read the comments on this over at PFT.com: http://www.profootballtalk.com/2008/11/ ... or-rivers/ (http://www.profootballtalk.com/2008/11/18/ward-not-worried-about-revenge-for-rivers/)

I'm so sick of folks calling Hines dirty. Here's the simple fact, if he was on your team, you'd love him... end of freaking story. I was even compelled into posting over there.

Then look at all the Baltimore fans' comments... damn felons...

Told yinz Florio's a douche!!!

As for that Mr.Football person over there, he sure doesn't understand the game, does he? I like the part about him saying Ward disengages from Purde to take a cheap shot at Reed and the proof is that Purde made the tackle. Heh...hello Mr. "I don't understand" Football...Ward disengages to hit Reed because he's making a block on the second level. Offensive linemen do this all the time. They make an initial block, figure they've given the ball carrier enough room to move past that level and they then disengage and make a second level block.

Unfortunately, Ward didn't engage his block on Purde quite long enough. But make no mistake, that's what he was attempting to do.

Those a$$wipes that call Hines Ward dirty obviously have never played the game of football. ---Or, they've played, but had their butts wiped out by someone doing what Hines is doing. He's finishing the freakin' play. Ever since I was 10 playing peewee league, I have been told to keep hitting until the play was dead, - Not to stand around the freakin' pile or I might get planted, and always look for someone to hit. That's what Hines Ward does, it's fundamental football at the elite level. A freakin' job well done by a professional who understand what this most physical of games is all about. Soccer is a contact sport, football is a colision sport. I'm out!

I agree. I think Ward tries doubly hard to lay out another Bumgal to just emphasize a point. He should care less about any fines coming his way. The Steeler Nation would pay it. Just put a donation box outside the stadium.

The Bumgals threatening revenge is like the school sissy telling the wrestling team he is mad and gonna beat them up. The Bumgals are the sissys of the NFL.

I hope the Bengals, Patriots, Cowboys, Ravens, Titans and Browns in that order all focus on trying to pay back Hines.

We'll run the f**king table if they're focused on HInes and not playing football. Ya gotta love it!
