From a 12/5/2004 Vic Carucci column at

"I don't think any defense can stop us," Westbrook said. "The thing that is going to stop us is ourselves."

If that's what Brian Westbrook actually said, I hope (as an Eagles fan) that it's not what he meant. It would have been OK if he had said "the only thing that can stop us is ourselves", or something like that, but the remark as quoted seems to predict self-inflicted failure.

Then again, the way Ben Roethlisberger has been hitting the iceberg lately, maybe remarks like this are a good omen.
