So I wanted to continue this discussion in the division blog: How would you feel if/when Ward retires?
In my opinion, Ward is the most polarizing athlete in the AFC North. In my six seasons covering teams within the division, I've never seen a player more beloved and respected by his fans and teammates who draws equally strong negative emotions from rivals and opposing fans.
You either love Ward for his all-out style or you hate him. Steeler Nation feels he's a throwback player, while many opponents believe he plays dirty.
But at 34, Ward will be hanging up the cleats soon. So what will your thoughts be when Ward retires?
