Although it's been a full season since they lost to the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV, a bad taste probably still lingers in the mouths of the Pittsburgh Steelers, which can only be washed away by a champagne-doused Super Bowl victory celebration. One of the most significant subtractions from the team is the retirement of eventual Hall of Fame receiver Hines Ward, who in 2011 experienced the lowest of lows (being arrested for a DUI) and the highest of highs (being crowned champion of Dancing with the Stars). OK, maybe not the highest of highs. Regardless, Ward will be a tough player to replace. Last year, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger surprised many by staying out of trouble with the law for an entire season. Will Big Ben remain a good boy and lead the Steelers back to the big show?
