Joe Flacco Thinks He Is NFL's Top QB

Wednesday April 4th, 2012

In a recent radio interview, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco stated that he thinks he is the best quarterback in the NFL, according to

"I assume everybody thinks they're a top-five quarterback," Flacco said to WNST 1570 in Baltimore when asked where he ranks among NFL quarterbacks. "I mean, I think I'm the best. I don't think I'm top five, I think I'm the best. I don't think I'd be very successful at my job if I didn't feel that way. I mean, c'mon? That's not really too tough of a question.”

Flacco is currently in the final year on his rookie contract since being drafted in the first round in 2008.  His agent Joe Linta has expressed that he and Flacco believe the quarterback should be treated like the league’s best and he wants a deal done soon.  However, Flacco did say, "It's not about the money. It's about what you feel you deserve.  At the end of the day, they'll take care of it and I'll be waiting.”
