    Re: Dirtiest NFL player: Steelers' Ward

    He gets a rep as a great blocker because he lights up 3 guys a year blindside or helmet to helmet(or both).

    He is dirty, if the players are the ones saying so I don't think there's any way to disagree, they're the ones on the field with the guy. The NFL needs to start flagging him for hitting with his helmet. I'm not kidding when I say I hope he ends his career on a hit like one of the ones below:


    Hines Ward Blocking

    Not a single clean hit, yet he gets praised for each and every one of them.

    Bart Scott: Helmet to helmet, the only one in the video that did not result in an injury.
    Nick Ferguson, concussion, got a CT scan after the game.
    Keith Rivers: Broken Jaw.
    Daven Holly: Concussion, and the worst hit of all, the play was over, tackle was made.
    The one closest to clean was on Ed Reed, but it was still a cheap shot, he fakes a block on Ivy just to light up Reed with the top of his head. Ed Reed: Questionable for the following week, head injury, concussion most likely.

    He's like an asshole version of Donald Driver.

    Re: Dirtiest NFL player: Steelers' Ward

    I happen to like Ward's style and determination.

    As far as a "blindside" block, nothing illegal there.
    Just because the guy is not seeing him come off the corner to wreck someone, that does not make it dirty.
    It makes is effective.

    I do as well; it's much like the intimidation factor of hockey.
    A huge block makes people keep their heads on a swivel and can give your teammates that split second to make something happen.
    Him being out there willing to throw a block makes defenders account for him.

    I agree , most times receivers are downfield wether it's a pass or a run play and where alot of them stand around 15 yards off the play Ward comes back to help his team , I don't think he deliberately tries to hurt people this is football and people are going to get hurt.

    Re: Dirtiest NFL player: Steelers' Ward

    He's Ward is considered dirty because he is a man amongst boys when it comes to the WR position. The dude lays out fools with blocks that even tackles dream of.
    He plays the game how it is suppose to be played, going hard 24/7 and doing whatever it takes to help his team.
    I have mad respect for him and he does a hell lot of good for the city of Pittsburgh.
    I've met him at his bar and he is a hell of guy who i a rarity at the WR position.

    I know I was the same way as a WR.
    I didn't give 2 shits if i was considered dirty cuz all i wanted to do was knock cats out, catch the ball, and help my team.
    I say go ahead and knock as many fools out as you can.
    But, if you are being excessive it is going be caught by officials and you will suffer consequence so just be aware of that.
    But otherwise Im fine with it.

    Football's becoming a pussy whipped game.

    Violence, sex, and drugs.
    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."

    Flozell Adams is dirty, I've got a lifelong Cowboy fan friend who also thinks he's dirty, or at least cheap, He chop blocks when the other guy isn't looking, holds more than most O lineman, The game against Carolina earlier in the year was a clinic on cheap play by him, We watched him on every offensive play and he does something almost every time, "Accidentally" fell on Peppers-completely unnecessary, You could see him semi-punch the D ends right in the chinstrap acting like he just had his hands up, I can't stand that overrated piece of crap!


    Personally I think Ward is just dishing out what corners and safeties have been doing forever,

    Even if the Vikings lose, I can still find happiness in Bears, and Packer losses.

    Holy shiat...some of those "blocks" where potential career enders.
    Nothing manly about bashing into somebody after the play when they are standing around completely defenseless.
