Do you believe Ben Roethlisberger is a top-five QB this generation? If your answer is yes, Cam Jordan would disagree with you.
The New Orleans Saints host the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday, and the defensive end took it upon himself to declare that Roethlisberger is not a top-five quarterback of this generation.
If that isn’t bulletin board material for the Steelers, then I don’t know what is.
“Is that true?” Jordan asked when a reporter suggested that Big Ben is s future Hall of Fame quarterback. Who then followed with an exaggerated “Reeeeaaallly?”
“In this era? You’d put him a like top three of this era? You’d put him in the top five of this era?” Jordan continued to ask after citing Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning as the best quarterbacks during Big Ben’s 15-year career.
“You’re saying he’s better than Philip Rivers, career-wise? So you’re giving him the Super Bowl nod?” Jordan added. “You’re putting him at No. 5? OK … I’d honestly put Eli [Manning] before I’d put Ben, but OK. Two Super Bowls … if we’re going by those numbers.”
Thursday night, Jordan took to the world of Twitter to clarify his stance on Roethlisberger making the Hall of Fame.
To be honest, I was thinking first ballot, not naive or biased to say that he isn’t a HOF but alas 🙄🤷🏽♂️

For his career, Roethlisberger has over 55,000 yards, 359 touchdowns and 189 interceptions while completing 64.4 percent of his passes. That’s good for a solid passer rating of 94.2. We’ll see if Jordan can back up his talk with the Saints this weekend. A win would see them officially secure the No. 1 seed in the NFC.
