Joe Flacco made some pretty hefty claims during the off-season that had a lot of us chuckling to ourselves, if not rolling on the floor laughing.
In case you somehow missed it, get this -- when asked to rank himself among NFL quarterbacks, the fifth-year starter for the Baltimore Ravens stated: "I don't think I'm top five; I think I'm the best."
I'll pause for a moment for you to collect yourselves. In the meantime, remember that last season Flacco ranked 12th in total yards, tied for 13th in touchdown passes, 18th in quarterback rating and 26th in completion percentage.
Flacco finally had a chance to try to live up to his big talk against the Cincinnati Bengals on "Monday Night Football." And just when a national television audience was ready to let out a collective guffaw at the nutty quarterback and his delusions of grandeur, he delivered ... well, almost.
