"So Asians can't play football, huh? I'd say we're pretty darn good," Hines Ward told the NFL draft prospect.
Former Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward announced the ending of a great career Tuesday, but not a Hall of Fame career. Three receivers in Ward's era have consistently put together seasons better than Ward's absolute best season.
Hines Ward represents everything about the city of Pittsburgh we're the most proud of: he's tough, he's a great mentor, he's selfless, he's a team player, he's loyal, he's good-looking, and he flashes a smile bright enough to cut through the dreariest and grayest of skies.
One of the claims in the new book by Hank Haney, Tiger Woods' former swing coach, is that Woods seriously considered quitting golf to become a Navy SEAL. Huh?
So, as with most of the games this season, the Steelers finished their up-and-down season with an up-and-down game. With Mendenhall out for the playoffs, their entire game plan might need to change.
Although Steelers fans will relish in this win, there's really only one thing on all of our minds: Revenge against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football.
