Former Steeler Great Rod Woodson Says Roethlisberger Not Top 5 Quarterback

Rod Woodson talked with Joe Starkey of Seibel and Starkey on Sportsradio 93.7 The FAN about a number of topics surrounding the AFC Championship game between the Steelers and Jets.

Rod and Joe opened things up discussing Jets Cornerback Darrelle Revis and how he is considered to be the top cornerback in the league, but Rod said the fact that he doesn't have an interception this year does take something away from him because if you truly are a game changer, you find a way to get your hands on the ball.

Joe had Rod tell him how he would attack each team if he were still playing on the defensive side of the ball.  Woodson said the Steelers don't change what they do so much on a game to game basis because they don't need to, whereas the Jets are constantly changing what they do in order to get to the quarterback, which will be a key for them this week facing Ben Roethlisberger.

Speaking of Roethlisberger, Rod said he would not rank Ben Roethlisberger in the "elite" or "Top 5" categories among quarterback's currently in the league and had a number of reasons why to support that claim.  Woodson went on to say that Ben winning this week would solidify who he is as a quarterback.

Joe wrapped things up with Rod asking for a prediction for the AFC Championship, and he said he does like the Steelers to come out victorious.
