Hines Ward always had an electric personality while playing football on Sundays for the Pittsburgh Steelers. It seemed whether he scored a touchdown or got tackled Ward was always smiling. The wide receiver loved playing in football and you could tell he gave everything he had each game. Since retiring from the NFL, Ward has been busy being an analyst on NBC’s Football in America. Now Ward will have to conceal his smiles for his new role.
Thanks to some help from an old college teammate Ward will be in the AMC hit show “The Walking Dead”. He does not have a major role, but you get to see what he will look like in the above picture. Ward spoke with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about his experience. He said, “Just being in makeup preparing me for my role was cool. I actually scared myself when I looked in the mirror for the first time after.”
Acting like a zombie is not the only thing that is keeping Ward busy these days. You remember when the Steelers made a cameo in the final Batman film directed by Christopher Nolan? If you don’t remember you can check out the clip of Ward running a kickoff back for a touchdown in “The Dark Knight Rises” right here.

Pittsburgh Steelers former wide receiver Hines Ward wanted to play another season and could see the Steelers young receivers needed a leader, but the team felt he could no longer perform at a high level.

Hines Ward hasn’t let the grass grow under his feet in retirement, that’s for sure. In addition to his analyst gig for NBC’s Football Night in America, the former Steelers receiver has been showing off his cooking prowess on the Food Network’s Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, and has dabbled in acting a bit, taking a role in the blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises.

Although it may not sit well with Steelers fans, Pittsburgh center Maurkice Pouncey admitted that he's pulling for the Ravens in the Super Bowl. But why?
The Pittsburgh Steelers have named their next coach of the Offensive Line. Jack Bicknell Jr., who coached the line for the Kansas City Chiefs this year during the "Year of the Non-Quarterback". The Chiefs had a great season rushing the ball, ranking fifth and averaging just under 150 yards a game. Kansas City ranked last in the league in passing, but had no quarterback...
Even George Bush is like damn homie….
There are various reasons why players in general don’t like Roger Goodell, but I think it is summed up best by Steelers James Harrison.
“I think it’s obvious that I disapprove.” Harrison has been fined more than $100,000 in his career for hits the NFL has deemed against the rules.
“I feel like what he’s doing is not totally for...
So Facebook knows way too much about our lives, I'm sure...and in this case they started mining their data for good instead of evil. And by "good", I mean "good thing we know which counties in Ohio are occupied by cockroaches Pittsburgh Steelers fans.
