Joe Flacco Thinks He Is The Best QB In The NFL

This post originally appeared at SB Nation.

Just to get the obvious out of the way first, Joe Flacco is not the best quarterback in the NFL.

He’s probably not in the top 10.

Still, he seems to think he is, saying in a WNST 1570 interview, “I don’t think I’m top five. I think I’m the best.”

There will probably be a media firestorm about how the beleaguered quarterback is deluded and arrogant, or maybe he is simply trying to gain traction in his contract talks.

If you continue on past the inflammatory rhetoric, Flacco clarifies his statement in a way that makes a lot more sense, though it does not produce as inflammatory of a headline.

He continued in the interview, “I don’t think I’d be very successful at my job if I didn’t feel that way.”
