As I mentioned Thursday, a few national analysts have recently voiced their opinions on Joe Flacco. CBS broadcaster Phil Simms believes Flacco can lead the Ravens to the Super Bowl. ESPN’s Matt Williamson said that Flacco is on track. And NFL Network’s Joe Theismann thinks Flacco will break out this season.
But consider Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley unimpressed. Appearing on NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access” on Thursday, Woodley said the Ravens quarterback will never win a Super Bowl “in this lifetime.”
“No, not at all because they have to go through one team -- that's the Pittsburgh Steelers in that AFC championship,” Woodley said. “So in order for them to get to the Super Bowl, they have to beat us, and we're not gonna let that happen once we get that close. So that's not gonna happen in this lifetime."
Flacco is 2-6 against the Steelers, including playoff losses in two of the past three seasons. Woodley has 7.5 sacks in those games.
