Ravens QB Flacco Fires Back at Steelers LB Woodley’s Comments

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was told by a friend about Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley’s comment that Flacco and the Ravens wouldn’t win a Super Bowl “in this lifetime.”

“[Woodley] obviously doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” Flacco told Keith Mills and Pete Gilbert on WBAL Saturday by way of Baltimoreravens.com.

“At some level I don’t care [what Woodley says] because what does that really mean? But there is another level where it does kind of piss you off a little bit.”

The young signal-caller understands that the Steelers have ended the Ravens’ playoff runs in two of the last three years, but Flacco is also encouraged by the fact his team has advanced to the playoffs three seasons running.

Now, it’s just a matter of getting over the Pittsburgh hurdle, and Flacco is confident his team will do it. “We just need to come up a little bigger than we have while playing those guys a couple of times,” said Flacco. “I mean, come on. What does he think? That they’re going to do it every year? … I think we are going to have a lot more years in Baltimore where we’re going to have a good chance [to win it all], but we realize we have a really good chance right now and we just want to go ahead and win it.”

“Believe me, when I hear that kind of stuff, it definitely sparks a little something in me.”
