Not individual honor now that's the biggest again it's I think it's four pro football player mean -- When you start playing in the National Football League in full -- case in this year for -- You think about the Pro Football Hall of Fame with -- the highest individual honor a player can receive so.
Tickled pink sort of peca focus almost surreal to think that I belong in the same class -- Gale Sayers Joseph -- -- a John Elway -- -- knit ski bum but they have in there in excesses that are great journey to this point.
Yeah well I.
I'm a big football there and I and I watch it but for many years and I was the Steelers spam by default you know when the Redskins would get knocked -- that I you know have to -- on the team and you guys.
I remember the seventies when that there was one time at the time -- that and you know I I watched you.
Many many Sundays and and you were a player to be feared and you know.
I I respect your your abilities and rooted against him.

Well I appreciate your your honesty and but people probably -- that all the time and you hated doing your play.
Yeah -- I hated you respect your play I -- Hugo OK but I -- lot of boots yeah.
And -- now.
You're you're you're like get mutually respect you're ever order -- respected that -- but now there's going in the Apollo bay enemies it.
They got they got a case you weren't going gulf.
-- and when you.
Are you going nullifying your little smarter in everything I say is a -- -- the whole for -- has released talking about so.
You know all -- it has its -- though but you know.
Honestly you know it's I've talked to Mike Singletary.
About two months ago and act like us that when it's sent in for you.
Picture hall of Famer you're in that category.
And he said that it never really happens -- I think it's going to be kind of thing for me because I look at him here and I don't see.
A hall of fame -- to see this guy who I've known forever of course.
But that this is knuckle head nappy headed kid from Indiana.
You know it's just the country -- -- -- I don't see a hall of -- -- me when I look at -- For people who don't know rod Woodson he played seventeen NFL season that the -- -- back he was elected to the pro ball eleven times.
Named all pro nine times named the NFL's 75 anniversary -- whatever that is.
1993 and -- felt -- -- player of the year and won a Super Bowl as a member of the Baltimore -- in 2001 that being the New York football giants.
How hard -- -- for you to -- this -- and go to the races I mean it with the -- to say are -- Go to or even direct.
-- you know what.
It was a it was a split up between -- -- and I know they did what they thought was best for their organization and moving forward it out volatile washed up in.
You know I just came off my ACL injury a year later.
And it is that they didn't think I can come back early and I thought I couldn't.
You went to the niners -- what services go after that yeah and I wanted -- -- tired after that for and it's been there a year they aired tonight.
Came back to the East Coast and in play for Baltimore in -- -- Lewis who.
Was in Pittsburgh with me of -- a linebacker coach.
-- and I can see the young talent when I got here you know that they're crazy thing about going to Baltimore.
Is what I want to Pittsburgh to play.
To be in the visiting locker room.
There was little pot -- -- -- in the opposite locker room come with an opposite end of the tunnel.
I was doing everything backwards when I got there the first time -- and I enjoyed my four years of Baltimore we had a blast we had a good football team some good players.
-- -- -- good organization to to play for.
Was it hard for you.
To go back to Pittsburgh as a visitor and at heart -- in Iraq went with former -- -- their former teammates built there.
On the Steelers.
And now most of the guys in the world removed on -- -- -- you know what I -- -- -- the Pittsburgh Steelers makers argue really the steeler nation they love you when you were in the black Congo good.
They'll have put on that purple black and they booed me and they talked about me and my family and all of all -- up and they gave me a pretty good -- walking through the through the tunnel to the field.
But that's what should happen it was fun going in there and in and play and and I think we beat them.
-- -- she's -- -- I was back.
But where are gonna ask was there a moment when you went -- with the ravens and Pittsburgh -- it may be picked up a pass through oranges you know -- the crap out of somebody that just really brought at all.
Boy you know it.
-- was -- all of who won the game -- -- my biggest thing when I first full of Baltimore's long we -- beat Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh past the key for me.
And and we did that we when I went there I don't know I think that -- out of -- three years we won three times in Pittsburgh they might have beat us at home a couple times.
And they went -- what the raiders we came back my first year and we beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh -- later so.
I felt pretty good about my time and other places coming back to Pittsburgh and went -- full board.
Right now it are you an we're we're used a studio that a hotel room when it -- I am and I'm in my hotel luxury suite and house.
And now I'm -- -- back room and they did put a couple of table with a lamp on and the plant to make it look -- that's right you know -- all right -- -- see wearing a shirt -- it -- because your.
You your promoting -- project and prostate cancer right to me about that.
Right -- -- partnered up with the pins pins it has -- Project partner was zero to really eradicate -- prostate cancer prostate cancer.
For men can kill people particularly vigilant bullet Bob Hayes passed away.
About seven years ago prostate cancer in the key is early detection go on -- Get your PSA test.
To see where your -- -- prostate cancer in -- men one -- six men are gonna get prostate cancer one of four African American -- all get prostate cancer and I think the key is early detection and for me.
Before I started talking about in talking really understand it about -- -- -- had no knowledge at all what it was.
How it affected me and and once we did some research and in my family my wife and I.
I -- to really educate me in a -- We obviously would be lazy and go out and get tested -- an easy task takes five minutes or out of ideas -- and we don't want to do anything.
Making it made me nervous just thinking about what that test might entail the -- What value but -- -- the first test or not but a blood test that's -- you do you go get your blood tested they go to the lab.
And -- the -- come back negative thing here clear for a year you take it the following year now because back -- a high PSA.
You know there's some negative positive and and all that stuff but.
Your doctor would do more of evolved research area but at least you know way the key isn't that the the problem is really is when you don't know.
He and you just go on thinking your healthy but -- the silent killer inside view and sometimes you find out -- too late.
Closer is there any other telltale signs that you heroes and they doctor -- work with a program -- you popular a lot about it.
Well I mean.
There's there's some besides -- when you're -- too much work.
There's a lot of those signs can be negative signs are can be just for a -- different symptoms in your body blow it you know.
If you urinate too often as a man.
You might want to check -- you have.
If you have pain in your lower abdomen you might want to go and check but -- the key honestly.
This is to go get checked no matter if you have a -- or not this go -- check -- out.
Five -- a process that you -- go -- your doctors get your blood drawn to go to elaborate you're gonna roll.
If you do have it or you don't and I think that's the key for me I got a test done for the first time this year.
And it came back negative -- -- -- -- Clear my -- just for at least a year regulation.
Rob Michaels and never Wear depends so I have to go take -- and I'm gonna do it this should never have the way but you know what you should and shouldn't we should at least go by to pay -- an -- byproduct.
Because a product at least give money back to zero up to 200000 dollars so go.
Even if you don't -- aware that the product called Baidu anyway it's good for good call you know well by the give about it gifts.
About do you go -- somebody's gonna need it.
Prostate cancer the second leading cause of male cancer related deaths in the US -- an estimated 27.
Fatalities in 2008.
Also the most the single most diagnosed non skin cancer among African Americans and Hispanics.
However while prostate cancers among the most prevalent forms of cancer since 2005 nearly 100% of men diagnosed with the disease -- -- early stages are still alive five years later -- -- you -- it.
Early then you're good to go out.
It says here early detection is the -- right.
Early detection is the -- that your politics -- the book that the it -- but that's and then that is it you don't have it and then you can.
What they need to do whatever you want if -- all you want.
They can you you can be relaxed for a year.
That you can feel you want.
But I don't get -- over.
-- that's been warned about the NFL today and he -- he's -- -- a little longer than you.
But the game -- certainly changed since when you first start buying and I'm wondering.
If you like the where -- and it goes today or hear.
Ever think about that you don't like them.
What I think really two things have changed the game I think than all the media outlets.
-- are there around the day that wasn't there twenty years ago has changed the mentality of the young players.
They feel that they need they need to do more to the public so they.
Use the media outlets to.
Have their agendas put out front and it might be locked room issues which shouldn't.
Go really go out to the public -- I think the second thing that really has been negative.
The rule changes I think a rule change is hindered the league in it's it's really.
Made the game what it wasn't years ago -- like old school full -- you can hit on the court you know if you didn't have the quarterbacks crying and why -- -- -- -- -- getting out of -- -- on -- ball on the ground -- would disagree.
You know because he was a quarterback to -- and get out of pocket it in his career he could slide feet first.
He could -- ball away.
Well back in the day you get out of pocket you could he hit.
Right -- you want my vote but nowadays you you and I both know that when a team makes an investment like for example in.
Eli Manning for fifteen million dollars a year.
They don't want some guy who's making you know two bit the year -- that the the come across -- and -- his head up and take them out for six weeks during the rest of the season because then their biggest investment.
Is it on the on the sidelines they can't afford it.
You have the -- -- about the about the coach.
-- tell my guys don't hesitate to hit a quarterback or all of the player because once you hesitate you're gonna get cut.
-- so you wanna keep making the check you better go hit him.
But I love the fact that you were one of these hard hitting -- and you still wanna -- people's heads up you do it like like that would that ad campaign office linebacker.
You guys remember did you ever see that -- now -- -- -- -- remember -- -- -- -- -- people.
Mel I don't know -- that look at our -- -- -- somebody right now.
Apparently pop my shoulder perpetrated somebody what was the worst injury you've ever had -- -- -- you're ACLU says.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- my by simple off my bald doll that her that one hurt if like somebody shot in the arm and I never been shot before.
And then never shot -- -- either yeah blood I would think that -- hurt.
You you mentioned Plaxico Burress by default that you think that he should be allowed to play -- -- again.
Well I mean it -- really depends on the you know the good it did this judicial system or going to -- and you gotta think.
He's been indicted.
What's what's going to be the outcome of that I think everybody's gonna wait and see -- -- he's.
Once that's over.
If he's if he's cleared of it that I think he should be able play not cleared -- he's going to jail.
And that's that's something like that got to bother you that.
A player in NFL players walking around that with a handgun in this in this way and that's what pants I mean you can't look at that in and admire him and on any level.
All right now you try to think you know what are you thinking about -- -- got to remember the next day.
I think what this team Kristi Smith -- got carjacked or he got help put up -- gunpoint.
But that's not an excuse to to carry a gun around in a public place.
In New York.
You know I just I I -- I frown upon it it's unfortunate.
Four -- gold -- is fortunate for everybody around that he shot himself in the leg and not somebody else because he will be imprisoned right now.
Market Cincinnati says it's great to see rod Woodson he was a great player by the Bengals don't have -- face him twice a year anymore.
Rod Woodson is -- pro football analyst on NFL total access on the NFL network.
What's your what are your prediction that in fact we have 32 look what would your predict that in fact for the coming season run.
I think the keys are really the two leading teams are Pittsburgh Steelers and the new York New England Patriots.
And I think the patriots have the edge because -- Tom Brady.
If we might -- -- if someone like you -- -- carry out the patriots are done.
Yes and he's gone again -- pictures through.
Rod Woodson inducted into the NFL hall of fame and -- out tomorrow.
Rod thanks very much for being on the strategy room good luck to you my friend.
