i may be the only steeler fan that hates hines ward, i really do....he gets paid #1 wr money and hes no where near the top of the leagues WRs. hes sick in the slot and a great blocker and can move the chains but hes never even been close to the level of the top tier WRs.
that being said ward>mason, both are solid veterans but between the two its almost no contest

Well because I am such a homer and completely hate the Steelers I like Mason over Ward. I would rather have Yamon Figurs back than to have Ward
There's being a homer, and then there's being stupid. You may hate Hines Ward, but you know damn well you'd love him on the Ravens. I hate Ray Lewis' ass probably more than you hate Hines, but I would root for him if he came on the Steelers. I respect the hell out of Ray. I just hate him. I also can admit that he's one of the better LBs in the game today.
This is a BEST TEAM vote. Not a homer vote or a vote to not go for your most hated player in the league. Like I said, I'm probably going to vote for Ray Lewis and I hate his ass. It's just the fact that I think he's the best player to fill out the AFCN squad.
How are you going to tell me I would love to have Ward. I hate him and would never want him on my team. I wouldn't take him for free if the Steelers offered him. Maybe take him just to bench him. Oh and I voted Boldin because he is better than Ward so my vote is still valid

Saying Hines Ward is better than Derrick Mason is fine but, saying its no contest, or it's no comparison is ridiculous. These are two very comparable players...The one thing I like more about Hines is his blocking ability, but I think Masons non-douche factor makes up for that.
