    Pittsburgh Steelers veteran wide receiver Hines Ward isn't done playing football.

    The accomplished wideout says he'll play again next season and doesn't plan to retire following the Steelers' Super Bowl XLV loss to the Green Bay Packers.

    “I’ll be back,” Ward said.. “I’m not going anywhere.”

    The 34-year-old caught seven passes for 78 yards, including an acrobatic touchdown.

    A former Super Bowl MVP, Ward now has 10 touchdown catches in the playoffs.


    I don't get this decision. The Steelers are not making it back to the championship, Ward is on the decline and already has 2 championships. Just retire already old fella.

    It's a little too premature to say that.

    (And Ward can still contribute)

    Ward is a wiley veteran. He's still productive. Remember, the Steelers are a run-oriented team.

    Besides the Steelers worked in their three young receivers (Sanders, Brown and Wallace) quite well along with Ward.

    As for the Steelers not being back in the championship, who knows? They've done a great job of drafting and acquiring talent (Joey Porter to James Harrison, for example) to play in three Super Bowls in the last six years. If any team will be back in the championship hunt, based on immediate past history, it's the Steelers.

    He hasn't been busted for his steroid use yet, so why quit playing? :cool:
