Very interesting article. I watched all of their games this season, and for the most part they still seem to be going strong.

Wouldn't be surprised if Ward retires. The same with Flozell Adams.

What was up with Troy during the playoffs and Superbowl? My hunch was either the coaches were taking it easy on his knee keeping him way way way back off the line, or his head simply wasn't in the game. Either way, he was essentially useless in the Superbowl. It was very sad to see.

The Steelers are just one of those teams that seem like they will always be strong. I cant even remember the last time the were a bad team. I year here or there, sure, but I htink you have to go back to the early 90's to find a lousy franchise in Pitt. Troy was just hurt I think. Maybe he just got caught trying to cheat too many times. I can't see Ward retiring like you do though

Looks like you're right Junior.

Ward wants to come back for his 14th. :)
