While Flacco has taken some heat for his bold comments, former NFL lineman Damien Woody didn't have any problem with what the quarterback said.
"I think it's a great attitude," Woody said. "As a professional athlete, you don't play second fiddle to anyone. You got to have that confidence, especially the quarterback position -- the most important position in all of sports. You got to feel like: When I'm on that field, I'm better than any other player."
