"Shoot, I'd love to have Ben playing in this game and going up against him for another time," Flacco said, via ESPN.com.
That's easy to say when you don't have to defend or try to tackle the quarterback.
Flacco cited competitive fire as the reason he would rather face Roethlisberger than Vick.
"As a competitor, it's always nice to face guys that you've been going against for a while," Flacco said. "You never like to see somebody injured either, and have to sit out. Hopefully everything is going well with (Roethlisberger), and he'll be out there as quickly as possible."
