Big Ben warns Nnamdi about Heinz Field


The just completed conference call with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger included this exchange regarding Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, who is questionable to play because of an ankle sprain:

Roethlisberger: Is he going to play this week?

Media: It’s up in the air.

Roethlisberger: I would send this warning to him. Be careful with our field, because it’s terrible.

Roethlisberger began laughing at the world “terrible.”

Having watched Raiders film in recent games, Roethlisberger is particularly impressed by the play of defensvie tackle Richard Seymour.

“I’ve been playing against him for awhile now and I’ve always thought that he was a marquee kind, one of those great players, but if you ask me, the film that we’ve broken down, he’s playing the best football of his career. I don’t mean that as any disrespect to how he was playing before. But he would be my choice for MVP of at least that defense. He’s wreaking havoc on everybody and everything and he seems to be rejuvenated, playing like he never has before.”

More to come . . .

  • What DHB saw from ford last game
    he needs to go to bed every nite wake up everyday an go to practice with that memory knowing one day(hopefully soon) that he be able to produce like that.
    Since he has to start we need to get him involved early an often. Give him some bubble screens,reverses schit like that. Get his confidence built up.

    Your thoughts my fellow raider fans

    Drives me nuts when I see people whining that Nnamdi isn’t a “playmaker.”

    Nnamdi is a pure man-to-man cover corner, the best the Raiders have had since the law firm of Hayes & Haynes was open for business and maybe the best the entire league has seen since Deion Sanders was in his heyday. And may I add that Asomugha supports the run in ways Sanders refused to.
    I must admit I’ve been harsh on Nnamdi. We missed him for the KC game. He is one of the best at his position.

    if seymore was on the national tv stations more he would be considered for defensive mvp. he is not only dominating opponets but he is lifting everyone else up around him. the most intense display of interior defensive line work i have seen since the late great reggie white.
