Woodson picks Steelers over Ravens
Thursday, January 15, 2009
Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The AFC championship game will be played Sunday in Heinz Field, but the Steelers have already stolen one from the Baltimore Ravens.

Rod Woodson, who played for the Steelers and then earned a Super Bowl ring with the Ravens, will serve as one of the Steelers' honorary co-captains Sunday. He will be joined by former teammate Dermontti Dawson. The two former Steelers greats are among the 15 Pro Football Hall of Fame finalists.

Woodson played cornerback for the Steelers from 1987 to 1996. He later played for the 49ers (1997), Ravens (98-01) and Raiders (02-03). Baltimore won the Super Bowl after the 2000 season.

Dang it! I say they reprise the atmosphere of the Monday Nighter last year and bring all the greats back! And put the ugly mustard helmets on and the whole nine yards. That might send Ed Reed into a coma just from flashbacks.

I don't see how this is a surprise. Sure he won a ring with the ravens, but he will ALWAYS be a Pittsburgh Steeler.

He will be inducted to the HOF as a Steeler, without a doubt.

If you are selected for induction into the Pro Football Hall a Fame, will you go in as a Steeler or a Raven?

I think what you have to understand that in football, you don't have to don a hat like you do in baseball. But if I had to pick a team, it would be the Steelers, because the Rooney family gave me my start, and I played 10 years in Pittsburgh. But if I did have to pick, that would be it.

So you are saying he will go in with an NFL network hat on?

What if he worked for CBS, FOX, NBC, or ESPN instead?

(I'm just playin') :lol:

I was expecting you to go through the motions yourself. You cheated. :P Until you mentioned it a couple of months ago I thought players went in representing a team.

You may not don a hat, but it will be clear who he represents come Canton time, and it will be clear which fans will be representing in the crowd. And it is also what I love about the Rooneys. They have to make some tough decisions, like letting guys like Woodson go for financial reason, yet there are no hard feelings with good character guys. Most egotistical athletes would be pizzed, but the Rooneys command that much respect. Sorry for going a bit off topic here. :)
