08:05 AM ET 04.04 | It's not often that a player can one-up his agent with a public assessment of his skills, but Joe Flacco has managed to do just that. [Flacco's] agent, Joe Linta, raised some eyebrows this past winter when he proclaimed that Flacco is one of the top five quarterbacks in the NFL and should be paid accordingly. Speaking with WNST Radio on Monday night, Flacco was asked directly: "Is Joe Flacco one of the top five quarterbacks in the NFL?" "Without a doubt." Flacco replied, 'What do you expect me to say? I would assume everybody thinks they are a top-five quarterback. 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."

He's hoping to catch that elite Eli Superbowl magic.

It won't work.

Too bad his team mates don't share his opinion...

They called him out for poor play during the playoffs.

"I think I'm the best. I don't think I'm top five, I think I'm the best."


I don't... but that's just my opinion.

Top 5 - possibly...

The best - no.

Give me Ben, Eli or Aaron.

I wouldn't put him in the top five. He's questionable for the top ten.

Just off the top of my head: Rodgers, Brees, Brady, Ruthlessgroper, Schaub, both Mannings ... all go ahead of Flacco.

I have no problem with him saying it. But that don't make it true.

At this point he is in the same category as Romo. Has not won anything!
