Happened to catch part of an interview with Hines Ward last night on Sirius NFL radio (whichever show comes on after Total Access...think it's Late Hits). Anyway, they had him on talking about a football camp he's doing in Atlanta (I think tomorrow), and how he's flying some of his teammates down there for it. Also said that Bettis is living in the Atlanta area now. He talked about how he's about done everything he could ever wish for in a football career, and how it's great, because he had to earn everything he got, nothing was ever given to him. He talked about starting out on special teams and working his way into the starting lineup to becoming Super Bowl MVP and the leading Steelers receiver.
He also talked about admiring Jerry Rice when he was growing up, as well as a couple Falcons receivers, and how growing up in Atlanta, he was a hard core Falcon's fan. Dan Reeves was one of the people interviewing him, and I guess he was coaching in Atlanta when Hines was drafted, because he said something to the effect that if he had interviewed Hines back in his draft year, and if his interview then was anything like it was last night, he would have drafted him in a heartbeat.
All in all, pretty good interview, and some neat stuff.
Sirius has been having a bunch of Steelers players/coaches on recently...but I keep missing them. Santonio Holmes was on this afternoon at 1:00, but I couldn't listen 'cause I was stuck at work.
