Letterman: "That's right. And when we're all done, you come into my office, and you can beat me up all you want, you can get me down on all fours and grab my wallet." (audience laughs)
Flacco: "Exactly…Well, that was actually earlier in the year when I wasn't signing what they wanted me to sign, he said, 'Listen, when the time comes, I mean, you come and beat on my desk,' and I said, 'All right, I'll take you up on that,' and I think the time has come."
Letterman also asked Flacco about his teammate Ray Lewis, who is retiring from football after this season:
Letterman: "Now, tell me about this guy Ray Lewis? What's his deal?"
Flacco: (laughs) "Well, half the time, I don't know, but…"
Letterman: "And why wouldn't you?" (audience laughs)
Flacco: "But come Sunday and, you know, he's been playing – he's been doing it for 17 years, so come Sunday, and he has something special, great teammate throughout the week, so."
Letterman: "Is he the spiritual leader of the team?
Flacco: "Ah, yeah, I mean, he's the leader in many ways, and that definitely being one of them.
Letterman: "And he uses deer hoof spray or something, what is it?" (audience, Letterman laugh)
Flacco: (laughs) "You have to ask him about that one, man!"
Letterman also got Flacco's thoughts on yesterday's unexpected power outage at the Superdome during the big game:
Letterman: "When the lights went out, did you find that unnerving? I found that unnerving – I wasn't anywhere near Louisiana."
Flacco: I just thought it was a little strange. It was kind of funny. I mean, some of our guys had a good time with it. Jacoby [Jones] is from New Orleans, so he started to look into the crowd and get them all going and had a lot of fun with it. We didn't play too well afterwards, but…" (audience laughs
