Hines Ward was the backbone to all those tough Steelers teams, winning two Super Bowls. He knows the tight knit fabric the Steelers had, and now their fiercest rival the Baltimore Ravens possess, unity.
The Steelers never threw each other under the bus, and more so, they protected each other. However, with talk of salary cap problems and a mass exodus of players predicted, Armegedon has fallen upon the Pittsburgh locker room.
Ward tells it like it is, back in the days it was nothing like this.
"When you lose so much leadership in the locker room, that's when things present itself like that," Ward said, via Ken Patra of NFL.com. "Guys start finger-pointing, calling out other guys.
That is not the Steeler way. We've always had a rule: We are a band of brothers. We've always collectively kept everything in house. ... But there was no finger-pointing and calling each other out. That's a total disarray, a locker room in disarray,"
