The biggest difference between Hines Ward and Antonio Brown’s stats was Ben Roethlisberger

With Antonio Brown briefly claiming to have finished his NFL career, the debate on whether he belongs in the Hall of Fame has erupted. One of the big discussions has been whether Hines Ward should get into the Hall of Fame before Antonio Brown.

This debate often centers on Brown’s production versus Ward’s Super Bowl wins and intangibles. While most people understand that the Steelers passed less during Ward’s career, but I don’t think people realize just how different the offense was during Ward’s prime.

Antonio Brown came into the league in 2010, and his last season with the Steelers was 2018, a run of 9 seasons.
