Hines Ward pushing record for Steelers wide receivers

For a guy who was supposed to be another Slash
when the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted him in 1998, Hines Ward has
been more than a reasonable facsimile of John Stallworth and Lynn
Fittingly, the two Hall of Fame receivers known for their
playmaking ability in four Steelers Super Bowl victories plan to be
in the stands Monday night when the Steelers play the Baltimore
Ravens in a key AFC North game.
Because of Ward, Stallworth and Swann are finding their names
less and less often in the Steelers' record book.
Ward's two touchdown catches during a 24-13 victory Sunday in
Cincinnati gave him 61 for his career, two fewer than Stallworth's
team-record 63. Ward also needs 445 yards to break Stallworth's
club record of 8,723 yards receiving in a career.
