Now, it could indeed "get in his head" but it won't be a self-fulfilling
prophecy since it wasn't Flacco's prediction to begin with. If Flacco
stated "I will probably never win a Super Bowl" and he ends up
not winning one, THEN, one could claim that was a self-fulfilling
prophecy.

Whatever Mr Grammar man.

The point is if he's thinking more about trying to show up Woodley than he is about the game plan of the day then score one for LaMarr.

Plus I'm predicting a career year for Woodley, so he'll be all over his ass as well.
