Ward's Super Bowl mind games


Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker
Tampa, Fla. -- Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward is already playing mind games with his pupil Larry Fitzgerald.

The sly veteran texted Fitzgerald this morning to let him know he's working out and trying to outdo the Arizona Cardinals star. The two know each other from Fitzgerald's college days at the University of Pittsburgh.

"I got up at 5:45 [a.m.]," Ward said, "so at 6 o'clock I figured I'd let him know that the old man is getting a beat on him."
