Ravens' Joe Flacco Follows Eli's Lead -- Tells Radio Station 'I'm The Best'

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco channeled his inner Eli Manning during a recent radio interview. Asked by a Baltimore radio station if he was a top-five quarterback, Flacco said "I think I'm the best."

"Without a doubt. What do you expect me to say? ... I assume everybody thinks they're a top-five quarterback. 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. But that doesn't mean that things are gonna work out that way. It just means that that's the way it is, that's the way I feel it is, and that's the way I feel it should be."

That, of course, is reminiscent of what Manning, the New York Giants quarterback, said prior to last season when asked if he thought he was in the same class as New England quarterback Tom Brady.

"I consider myself in that class," is what Manning said when asked the question by Michael Kay of ESPN New York.

We know, of course, that Manning followed up his remarks with the best individual season of his career. And by besting Brady in a Super Bowl for the second time.

Can Flacco do the same? We will find out.
