The Pittsburgh Steelers’ Hines Ward will admit that the Green Bay Packers have an impressive secondary. Great even. But, according to the veteran, Green Bay’s secondary isn’t as good as that of the New York Jets, the team Pittsburgh defeated to advance to the Super Bowl.
"No, the New York Jets had the best tandem," Ward said, per ESPN New York. "The Packers, no disrespect to them, they do have a great secondary, but I think (Darrelle) Revis and (Antonio) Cromartie, those two cornerbacks--I don't know what your opinion is, but they're the best tandem of cornerbacks out there."
To be sure, the Packers corners are no slouches--as Ward said, they’re really pretty great. In 2010, Green Bay’s tandem of Tramon Williams and Charles Woodson combined for 149 tackles, three sacks, six forced fumbles and eight interceptions.
