Rodney Harrison "Squeaky-Clean" Compared to Hines Ward

Thank you, Mike Preston.

Boy, I didn’t think I would ever hear myself say those words.  However, Preston wrote in his column today something I had originally included in my game recap this week, but removed it for fear of sounding too petty, whiny, sour grapes-y, whatever.  Here it is:

“Cheap-shot artist

Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward is a great player, but he should end those vicious blocking shots he takes at defensive players when they aren’t looking.

He got a good lick on safety Ed Reed on Monday night, but then he started flexing at the crowd as if he were Hulk Hogan. Some of those blocks are borderline cheap, and some player is going to have his career cut short.

Sorry Ward, you’re now in the same class with New England safety Rodney Harrison, one of the cheapest players in the game.”

Preston is certainly not a Ravens “fan.”  He makes his living writing (largely negative) opinion pieces on the team.  So it is nice to know somebody else is noticing these things.  The National media does nothing but praise Hiney for being “tough” and “hard-nosed,” never mentioning that on half of these “blocks” he makes, the play is over and the defensive player isn’t looking.

    Thanks for the comment on our site!

    I don’t know if I’d call Hines dirty… but he’s certainly not clean.

    Fact is… I’d love the way he plays if was in purple. He knows how to get under our skin and that’s our damn fault.

    […] WR Hines Ward.  For starters, EVERY TEAM IN THE NFL SHOULD HAVE A BOUNTY ON WARD.  He is a cheap shot artist and I’m not sure how he doesn’t get dealt with every week at this point.  But for […]
