If the football season starts on time, the Week One tilt between the Ravens and Steelers looks like the best game on the board following the season opening matchup between the Packers and Saints.
And just in case the game wasn’t going to get hyped enough, Steelers linebacker Lamarr Woodley is here to help.
Asked on NFL Network if Joe Flacco would ever lead the Ravens to a championship, Woodley responded just how we would expect him.
“No, not at all because they have to go through one team — that’s the Pittsburgh Steelers in that AFC championship. 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,” Woodley said as transcribed by Sean Leahy of USA Today.
For a while last year, it looked like the Ravens would get past the Steelers. But a 21-7 halftime lead in Pittsburgh imploded with three third quarter turnovers.
It’s the greatest rivalry in the NFL. It’s also one more reason we all hope the lockout is resolved before any games are missed.
