Last week Hines Ward called the Steelers defense soft and it upset Big Ben Roethlisberger. It hurt him so bad, Ben went off on Ward saying, Ward not only is clueless on Steelers matters but also the kind of guy who’s quick to cast blame.
Well Hines Ward has responded to his former quarterback:
“(Roethlisberger’s) comfortable calling the plays. Do you think he’s comfortable accepting the criticism that goes along with it? I know it’s not easy for anybody, but is it something that he’s capable of doing?”
“Well, I don’t know,” Ward said. “You look at it, he wants all the praise when we’re winning games, but when things are going bad, it seems like, ‘Well, I’m not the offensive coordinator.’ But you actually are the offensive coordinator, because you’re the one who’s calling the plays in no-huddle. And that’s what Big Ben wants to run.”
