Rod Woodson on bullying in the NFL, Greg Schiano and the NFC North


Lightning RodThere’s been one topic burning up the airwaves in the NFL this week and if you’ve been paying even the slightest bit of attention you know exactly what it is: rookie initiations and bullying in the wake of the saga involving Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin in Miami.

In this week’s edition of Lightning Rod, our Hall of Famer Rod Woodson weighs in with his take on the issue as well as the types of initiation rituals he dealt with as a rookie back in 1987 for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rod also talks about the coach he thinks is sitting on the hottest seat at the halfway point of the season and makes his pick of which 5-3 team will emerge as the champions of the NFC North – Chicago, Detroit or Green Bay.

(Listen to Lightning Rod for Week 10 of the 2013 NFL season)

Rod Woodson is an analyst for WestwoodOne’s coverage of the NFL. This weekend, Rod will be alongside Dave Sims in San Francisco as the 49ers host the Carolina Panthers. Coverage begins Sunday at 3:45 PM Eastern.
