    Did you know: Hines was criticized for habitually hitting defenders on their blind-side & twice named the NFL's dirtiest player? The most recent was in 2009.

  8. Brittany says:

    I'm so sad (and mad) that Hines Ward got kicked off. Who do these people think they are! Hines Ward is a good person (on and off the field). It's so sad that he could not win. But on the bright side, he won 2 superbowls (lets go STEELERS), and dancing with the stars!!! I hope he continues with his journey with trying to be the best in everything (I think he is the best at everything already)! I want all the recipes and make them all!! Good luck in life, Hines. We all love you!!

    Football will never be the same without your smile.
