T.J. Ward Gave The Pittsburgh Steelers Bulletin Board Material

T.J. Ward gave the Pittsburgh Steelers some bulletin board material this week.

Wherever Wade Phillips goes, he brings swagger. That is certainly the case with the 2015 Denver Broncos defense, who happen to lead the league in total defense, sacks and points per game. 

But at some point, that swag must be saved for gameday, because you never want to provide your opponent, especially a dangerous one like the Pittsburgh Steelers, with any additional motivation.

"They're hot because they haven't played us yet," safety T.J. Ward said. "A lot of teams were hot before they played us."

The Steelers have the No. 2 overall offense. Ben Roethlisberger, had he stayed healthy all year long, would be a MVP candidate. Antonio Brown is dominating the NFL. 

Pittsburgh is fighting for a playoff spot. They still have a lot to play for. As much as I love Ward's confidence, I'd much prefer for him to save it for the grid-iron on Sunday. 

Mike Tomlin is a savvy coach. He knows how to harness a foot-in-mouth faux pas within his locker room. And Ward's comments just add fuel to the raging fire that is the Steelers offense. Hopefully, he will be healthy enough to go on Sunday and back up his words.

Ward has missed the last two starts with an ankle injury, but head coach Gary Kubiak expressed optimism that Ward will be good to go this week in Pittsburgh.
