I saw that in the pre-game show. I like Ward and the way he plays the game, but man, that kinda threw me for a loop. I definitely would've thought Hines would understand the significance in head injuries. Hell, Rodney Harrison understood.
Had a few concussions...wouldn't reccomend playing ball with one.
ya don't say?
Very rarely do I agree with Mike Ditka, but I did last night. What he said was that Hines Ward should've kept his comments in-house and not air dirty laundry... So true, on so many levels.
On another note, I agree with Dread-Head; having suffered a few concussions myself, there is no good thing that can come out of playing with one.... Especially knowing what we know today about concussions.
There are still a couple of undefeated teams left in the NFL. Shouldn't you and the 72 Fins have popped the cork on those bottles of Dom Perignon to celebrate the last Superbowl Miami will ever win from that undefeated SHORT season by now? Can't wait to see what Gresie, Czonka and Morris wear for their "I'm still relevant" interviews this season.
Imagine how much more lucid I'd be had I NOT had half a dozen concussions.
Congrats Bill...having suffered concussions when we were yonger, we're more seceptable to dementia when we get older. Keep doing sadoku and reading man...we MIGHT be able to stave it off.
the Dolphins won a Super Bowl after that '72 season
and i'd love to see two undefeated teams in the Super Bowl
Statistically what are the odds of that? Although...imagine a Superbowl between undefeateds...nice.
Thanks...you got an old man's mind going.
By the way...nice use of Elizabithan English in the thread title. More people should do that. Verily good sir, I bid thee anon until the morrow.
I keep laughing everytime I read it...the form and football are two contrasting things that seem funny together.
Hines Ward doth sayeth that Big Ben the Playcaller should have participated.
I'm sure Hines Ward's comments are being blown way out of proportion.
What ho! How now good amphibian! Methinks muchadoo about nothing is this hurleyburley in Pittsburgh. Hines hath spake of matters of the house of Steel which henceforth hath been unknown, but the scribes doth protest too much.
You talk like that in real life people think you're nuts.
That explains so much about Bill....
"You must spread some rep around before giving it to Yankee_in_Tx again"
One of the old time Steelers has permanent damage from his multiple concussions...name escapes me now but I saw an interview some years back with this gentleman and he has permanent brain damage and it's only from playing with concussion issues.
He keeps his address in his wallet because he can't remember where he lives.
I THINK he was a RB..fullback maybe.
Merrill Hoge, former Steeler, has had big problems with concussions.
I think Ward is a jerk for saying what he did. You can think it, you can say it in the clubhouse, but to call a guy's toughness and competitiveness to question is just stupid. Maybe the players should have concentrated more on winning the football game themselves than making excuses or whining because they didn't have all their pieces together.
Thanks for the name..that's probably him. I just don't remember his name but I definitely remember the interview and him saying he keeps his address in his wallet so he won't forget where he lives. And how he played with concussions and all the damage that caused. Thanks again.
And y'all think I lose my balance because I'm drunk, ha!!!. Dain Bramage hurts your equilibrium.
i saw this as well and couldnt believe hines would say what he did, especially since the league's spent all season focusing on diagnosing and better protecting concussed players. my first thought though was back to big ben's comments about taller receivers, and hines taking a free shot at him publicly.
