Harrison, Ward race during Wednesday’s PFT on NBCSN

If you watched Wednesday’s edition of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN, you witnessed an unexpected competition, from the site of Thursday night’s regular-season opener.

Retired Patriots safety Rodney Harrison challenged retired Steelers receiver Hines Ward to a race.  It wasn’t part of the plan for the day, but it ended up being the highlight of the show.

The video appears below, with Harrison getting a fairly easy win. Hines accused Rodney of cheating.  Rodney accused Hines of whining about losing.

The difference may have been that Hines was wearing a suit, and Rodney wasn’t.

The good news for Rodney is that he ran a 4.5. The bad news is that the distance was a lot less than 40 yards.

    OR… Harrison is still a better, stronger, faster athlete than Ward.

    My bet is on Rodney Harrison because ward’s ironman has been over for a year.

    I thought maybe Harrison jammed Ward at the line

    When Harrison can run in the same type of outfit as Ward oe complete an Ironman that Ward did (and well), then he can talk. Ward is a much, much greater athlete than Harrison. Not even close.

    A decade later and nothing has changed. The Patriots are still beating the Steelers and with the resulting whining from the looser.

    Harrison juiced for the race, of course it was for medical reasons

    That was like a difference of 1 yard.

    They were both slow when they were active players. They were good because they were physical and smart.

    True champions

    And then when Harrison wasn’t paying attention, Ward leveled him with a blindside block and broke his jawbone.

    Stealing from Rich Eisen is a sucker move.

    Tough running in a suit 🙂

    If they have a rematch, Mr. Bevilacqua ought to be the judge.

    Then Hines turned and blasted him with a snot-inducing, decleater hit square to his grill. Go Google “Hines Ward hits Ed Reed” to watch Hines do the same to Reed in a game. If the NFL gave wide recievers credit for their blocking skills, ward would be a first ballot Hall of Famer. The best blocking WR in the history of the game, so good defensive backs are still sniveling about him.

    Hines moves a lot faster when he’s behind the wheel, with a few in him.

    Steelers always whine when they lose to the Pats.

    Hines Ward would eat Rodney Harrison up and spit him out if he ran without that suit on.
