Saints defensive end Cam Jordan turned some head on Thursday ahead of New Orleans’ match up with the Steelers on Sunday. He provided a little bulletin board material for Ben Roethlisberger after he said he didn’t believe Big Ben was a future Hall of Famer.
The reporter interviewing Jordan was trying to get his thoughts on the Steelers offense when he called Roethlisberger a future Hall of Famer. Jordan shot back with a puzzled look on his face, “is that true?”
The interview then turned into a discussion about who the top five quarterbacks in this era are. Jordan then said he would put Eli Manning in the Hall of Fame before Big Ben.
#Saints Cam Jordan is not buying the idea that #Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is a future Hall of Famer. Apparently, he's not even one of the Top 5 QB of his era – "I’d honestly put Eli before I put Ben" #PITvsNO #HereWeGo ➡️https://t.co/eUxl5N3Nxs⬅️ pic.twitter.com/uoBdAEu4jN

It’s official, Eli Manning has at least one vote for induction into the Hall of Fame. One of probably many when it’s all said and done. That’s not the crazy part of what Jordan had to say. Ben Roethlisberger has had a very productive career. I would say that most would consider him a future Hall of Famer.
