Browns' Holly calls Ward a cheap-shot artist

In a story in today's Cleveland Plain Dealer, Steelers' WR Hines Ward defends himself against accusations by Browns LB Daven Holly that Ward is a cheap-shot artist. If you recall, Ward was penalized for unnecessary roughness and fined $5,000 for a hit on Holly during the September 9 game between the two teams. As I see it, Ward went over the line with the shot on Holly, and the league saw it the same way.

But there's no way that Ward is a dirty player, a charge also leveled against him this week by Ravens LB Bart Scott, who was on the receiving end of a wicked Ward block just last Monday. Ravens' safety Ed Reed was also pulverized by Ward during that same game, and now the Ravens are whining because they apparently don't feel its very wide receiverly for a wide receiver to be raining punishing blows on defenders.

No wide reciever in history has doled out the punishment like #86. He's the reason for the consistent Steelers running game these past 10 years. He's a super bowl MVP and a pro-bowler for a reason and some day he'll be in Canton.

proud Steeler fan here...

thank goodness Ward is more than a receiver..when he can't be the one catching the ball...he's multi-tasking...and his blocking skills are top of the line. Keep up the good Work Hines...we love ya. Big Defensive linemen...go whine elsewhere.
