Joe Flacco is entering the final year of his rookie deal and still has to deal with critics who feel he can’t win the big game or be an elite quarterback.

Flacco wants it to be known he is dead serious this season about being elite.

He took the first steps last in night leading the Ravens in an obliteration of the Cincinnati Bengals.

Flacco was 21-of-29 for 299 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.  Harbaugh was so excited about his franchise quarterbacks performance that he let it be known.

Harbaugh told the Baltimore Sun Pay the Man.

“Pay the man.”

“Pay him whatever he want.”

“We’ve always stood up here, and we’ve always, all our coaches, the organization, we know what we’ve got in this guy,” Harbaugh said. “Of course he is [elite]. He is a winner. He is one of the toughest quarterbacks I have ever been around. He’s the best quarterback I’ve ever been around.”

In my opinion the barometer is Matt Schaub’s four-year, $62 million deal.   That should be the base of negotiations.

If Flacco can pull more out the Ravens, more power to him.

The video is cool also.
