It'll be a tug-of-war between two opposing factors that are a result of Plax's absence:
In Ward's favour: He is without question THE man when they go to the air. For yardage or for paydirt, the Pittsbugh air belongs to Hines Ward.
Against Ward: Plax drew equal and sometimes more attention from defences than Ward did. All that attention will now be focused on Ward.
The pros and cons will duke it out, with Ward's production letting us know which side is winning.
