A couple of quick notes and links while we wait for the morning practice report.
*Hines Ward is one of the primary reasons why I believe the Steelers have a legitimate shot at repeating in 2006. His work ethic could not be any more impressive. His resume includes 4 Pro Bowls, a Super Bowl MVP, and over 7,000 yards receiving, but he continues to set lofty goals and remains hungry. Even though he's been injured the past several days, he has stayed late every day of this camp to work with rookies Santonio Holmes and Willie Reed. Nobody in the locker room commands more respect from Ward, even if he isn't mentioned frequently enough in discussions about the game's best receivers>
