I hope this is the case. I would hate to see next year come down to bitter business decisions among the Steelers and players who gave their heart & soul for the team. This off season will difficult..There will be players and fans who will be finding it difficult to move on. I expect Ward, Smith, Hoke, & Farrior have played their last game as a Steeler and it is up to them how they want their careers come to an end. I would hope they walk away as Steelers.
