Tuesday’s edition of Pro Football Talk (NBCSN, 5:00 p.m. ET) featured a visit from the NFL’s answer to Grizzly Adams — Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel.
Keisel, one of the funniest players in all of football, addressed a variety of topics with Erik Kuselias and yours truly, including whether a quarterback Keisel knows very well ranks among the likes of Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, and Drew Brees.
“I don’t think he’s as good as those guys right now,” Keisel said of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. “But I said earlier someone was asking about should he get paid. Sure man! We should all get paid.
“I think he’s a very good quarterback. I think he’s starting to play his best ball and obviously he’s led these guys right down here to the biggest game of all.”
The Steelers know a thing or two (or eight) about playing in the biggest game of all. So what will it take to return?
“I think we need to do a little rebuilding,” Keisel said.
