Hines Sticks It To It Another Defensive Player, Knocks This Bengal Out For Good
Because it's so infrequent that a wide receiver is physical enough to block downfield, I love when the NFL's showcase players get down and dirty. The WR position in the league is filled with pre-madonna's who are more concerned with their inevitable touchdown dance instead of fulfilling their blocking duties on 99% of plays called.
Thus, Hines Ward is one of my favorite players in the NFL. This hit is one of the best examples. He lights up Bengals' linebacker Keith Rivers.
Unfortunately, Rivers broke his jaw on the play, but Ward was just doing his job. So be it. Dude got jacked up.
Pretty much sums up the Bengals season so far. Unprepared for every situation that is looming and knocked around silly when each and every contact happens. Go 0-16!!
