Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is a divisive character almost everywhere in the NFL. Even within his organization, no one is really quite certain what to make of him. The uncertainty has avoided one mind out there, and that mind is Flacco's. While his agent works on a new contract with Baltimore, the fifth-year quarterback is out promoting his own cause. In an interview with Baltimore's WNST, Flacco didn't shy away from describing his talent exactly as he sees it. When asked if he believes he is a top-five quarterback, Flacco told listeners, "I assume everybody thinks they're a top-five quarterback....

  • Why not give the rookie a shot he was drafted to produce. This offensive cordinator , he couldn't produce as a head coach , now this pass season couldn't call the right plays in the 2nd or 3rd quarters of the AFC championship game. I'm very tired as a fan and disappointed of almost getting a superbowl, Flacco and Cameron should be benched to feel reality. I live in Ca and was at the San Diego game and it looked "fixed" defense cant do it all.
  • This might sound like a broken record but the things you are saying was also pointed out by me two years ago, And the facts speak for itself, Cam Cameron will not get the best from this or any qb for that matter, The continuing saga of Harbaugh Cameron will hit a big bump this season, and the light will most likely shine on big Jim he has coached a winning qb and knows what to do with the skills the Ravens have and a need for a change is way overdue, Thats just my feeling on this and i have voiced my concern with so many Ravens fans that agrees with me on this, The total lack of game time adjustiments by this coaching staff and no play calling ability will continue to crush any chances of going all the way no matter who the players would be.
  • Flacco, Dilfer has a SB win and you don't! Top QB? Heck I don't think you are in the top ten!
  • You people are so dumb. No Joe is not the best quarterback in the NFL but he is damn good. Look at his first 4 years compared to anyones and he stacks up. Of course he going to think he's the best and if he didn't then I would think there was something wrong. He will win multiple superbowls and he is a huge reason that the Ravens are is good as they are, how many times did they ever reach the playoff's 4 years in a row and the AFC championship game 2 out of 4 oh yeah never before Joe was the quarterback.
