True, 44 got his against Ds spread out & worn down. But I saw that kind of running from him last year... well, never.
Anyone else thinking that the Ward hit on Holly was retribution? IIRC, Winslow not too much before that leveled someone... forget who... not necessarily dirty, but just getting a lick in. My thought at the time was that Ward was the enforcer on the field, saying You can't do that shit to our boys...
Yeah, seriously, I love Hines Ward.
How many wideouts can you name that intimidate DBs?
As Tony Kornheiser might say, "Hines Ward, end of list."
The guy contributes to our passing and running game in ways that stats can't count. How many times has he rung a DBs bell? Seems like almost every game. That means the opponent has to put a sub in, at least for a while, or the guy who got dinged plays foggy-headed. Has an impact, I tell ya.
(He did it, most notably, in the Super Bowl, when he fuckin' ran over their FS, who was already a backup, on that reverse.)
