Hines Ward Would Like You to Tone it Down a Notch

Many things appear to be coming to fruition in Steelers training camp. Mike Tomlin has been touted as a hard-nosed coach. He is. Hines Ward has been criticized (at times fairly, at times too harshly) for being a bit of a Debbie Downer since XL. He has been.

Well, miniscule as it may be, small pieces of shit are hitting the fan.

It's kind of a tough call. I mean, yes, I like that Ward is sticking up for his fellow wideouts, especially the young guys. But for a guy who clamored for a larger paycheck because of the physicality he brought to the WR position, it seems a little lame to be calling out people for being overly physical. And besides, what is Tomlin going to say - stop hitting so hard? Yeah, that would go over well in this town.
