The teams that passed on Roethlisberger

On Wednesday QB Ben Roethlisberger mentioned that he is extra-motivated when playing against any of the ten teams that passed on him in the 2004 draft, especially the Chargers (and presumably the New York Giants, too).

"I don't have anything against (Philip Rivers), but I like playing against San Diego," Roethlisberger said. "Anybody that was in the top 10 (of the draft), I kind of like to play against."

For what it's worth, Big Ben has lost just one start in his career against all ten of those teams combined. That loss came earlier this season at Jacksonville.
