08:01 AM ET 07.28 | Welcome back to the firing line, Joe Flacco. After an offseason in which analysts and players on other teams have taken their shots at Joe Flacco, the Ravens quarterback fired back Wednesday, saying "I think I'm pretty [darn] good." "What motivates me is being the best quarterback in the world," Flacco said as players reported to team headquarters. "You don't play this game to be average. I play this game to be the best. It doesn't matter what other people say. I think I'm pretty damn good. I don't need to go out and tell everybody that and show it on every given Sunday. I go out there and I play. You can think what you want about me. The bottom line is: I'm going to feel pretty good about myself no matter what you say."

No one ever said you weren't "pretty darn good", Joe.



Now - make your team better.

Of course, Trent Dilfer thought he was "pretty [darn] good" too. In spite of the Ravens winning Super Bowl XXXV, he wasn't.

In a world where teams are fighting over McNabb and Hasselbeck, yes. Joe is pretty damn good.

What is happening with the Eagles in FA man. Maybe I just thought we were going to be making crazy moves because I see Beck in here every day.

Prove it on the field, Joe, not in the media. Any fool can tweet pretty darn good.

Me too, he is a tall target and Ben likes him, but corner is a much more pressing need , Steelers are good at WR The Giants offered him something like 10M over 2 years, Steelers don't have that cap room, The papers say he meets with Tomlin on Saturday. I like Joseph too

Otherwise it's pretty [darn] scary, son running away from Harrison

"I don't need to go out... and show it on every given Sunday."

Umm, yes, you do.
