Default Joe Flacco Thinks He's "Pretty Darn Good"

Flacco apparently has decided to become a fan of himself

In a Thursday appearance on ProFootballTalk Live, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco fielded a question from the Internet-hack-turned-radio-show-not-yet-on-radio host regarding the fact that we don’t hear Flacco’s name when folks recite the names of the young franchise quarterbacks in the NFL.

Does it bother him?

“Every now and then, I guesss it can get to you a little bit, if you let it,” Flacco said. “But the bottom line is I have confidence in my abilities, and I’m pretty sure where I stand about what kind of player I am.”

Flacco was careful to point out that he doesn’t want to knock any of the other quarterbacks, but he was willing to acknowledge

“If you look at our schedule the last three years, we’ve had to play one of the toughest schedules in the league, if not the toughest. So, believe me, I know where I stand with myself, I think I know where my teammates stand with me. . . . I’m pretty confident in my abilities, I think I’m pretty darn good.

Can you imagine Brady, Rodgers, or the Steelers #7 needing to go public this week build up their own self esteem like this?

He was asked a question, so he answered it. It's not like he came out and wanted to let the whole world know. It was an interview.

Nitpicking crap people say makes me foam at the mouth kinda rage.

To much time until gameday, just shows how in our head both teams are to one another. Gonna be a knock down drag out fight, regardless who says they think their dog is cuter.

Of course it was an answer to a question - there were alternatives - such as

Question - "Does it bother you"

Answer - No

Instead we get my teammates respect me and "I think I am pretty darned good" - sorry to read your QB has self-esteem issues

I don't have a problem with what he said. What's he supposed to say? "Yea, I'm not as good as those other guys." He didn't say, "I'm awesome."
