Bruce Arians says Ben Roethlisberger should be ahead of Andrew Luck in NFL Network Top 100

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Former Steelers and Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians thinks it's wrong to put Colts QB Andrew Luck ahead of Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger in NFL Network's Top 100 Players list.

The fact Ben Roethlisberger ranked at No. 61 on NFL Network's Top 100 Players list is worth mentioning in a small way. An odd spot for a quarterback who was producing MVP-level numbers before a Week 10 injury derailed his season. But I ain't mad.

Around the League editor Gregg Rosenthal agrees with me; that's a ridiculous spot for him, especially considering there are 11 quarterbacks allegedly ahead of Roethlisberger on the list.

Even Roethlisberger's former offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, now the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, says he should be higher. Specifically, he should be rated higher than The Second Coming, Colts QB Andrew Luck, whom Arians coached last season in Indianapolis.

"Andrew belongs on the list, but he's not at that stage yet. He's got to put a couple rings on his finger and a bunch more wins (to get ahead of Roethlisberger)," Arians said on NFL Network's reaction show Thursday.

With Heath Miller at 97 on the list, and Troy Polamalu at 91, it's hard to see any other Steelers players getting mentioned in the remaining 60 entries. Because of that, it's safe to say the Steelers are seen with little value among the players in the league.

That should serve as motivation for the three chosen lower than they should have been, as well as the other 50 roster members who weren't named at all.
