Aaron Rodgers. Tom Brady. Eli and Peyton Manning. Drew Brees. Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco and his agent believe he’s right there with the elite class of NFL quarterbacks. Flacco’s agent, Joe Linta, created a stir in February when he said Flacco should be considered a top-five quarterback based on wins and losses. Flacco took it one step further Tuesday, telling WNST 1570 in Baltimore on Tuesday that he believes he’s the “best” quarterback in the NFL.

“I assume everybody thinks they’re a top-five quarterback,” Flacco said when asked where he thinks 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.

Meanwhile all the NFL experts wouldn’t be surprised if the Ravens drafted a quarterback in the draft this year. I understand the theory that you’re suppose to believe in yourself and believe in your ability but this is lunacy. Joe Flacco may be one of the worst quarterbacks in the league. I’d take both Mannings, Brady, Rodgers, Brees, Roethlisberger, Newton, Dalton, Romo, Vick, Fitzgerald, Stafford, Schaub, Ryan, Rivers, and probably consider Smith and Josh Freeman over Flacco. How’s that for the best?  This is hysterical. Cue a response from Ed Reed.
