John Harbaugh calls Joe Flacco 'best quarterback in the NFL'
Opinions tend to vary widely when it comes to Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.
For whatever reason, Flacco has become the center of the elite conversation, with those claiming he belongs in that category and others saying he's not even close. Well, Flacco's coach is in the former camp. Following Baltimore's 30-17 win over Pittsburgh, Ravens coach John Harbaugh sang Flacco's praises to the highest level.
"Joe Flacco, what can you say," Harbaugh told reporters after the game. "He's the best quarterback in football. We'll take him any day of the week, twice on Sunday or Saturday if that be the case."
Plenty of folks will take issue with that. But at the end of the day, who cares? After all, Flacco has won a Super Bowl and has been to the AFC Championship three times. He's 6-0 in playoff openers in seven years. It doesn't matter how Flacco wins in the postseason, it only matters that he wins in the postseason.
Flacco and the Ravens will travel to New England next week for the Divisional Round.
