He is 3 dropped passes away from the best.

His confidence has always been his best/worst quality. He is extremely humble off the field and extremely confident on the field. Always has been. In college he would throw up a 5 INT game because he would make passes nobody should because he felt he could squeeze it through the smallest of holes. When he was on that would be 5 TDs.
He does have the tools to be the best. And like SG said, Eli said the same thing and everyone laughed. He can be top 5. Just need everything to come together.

They played the audio on ESPN Radio on Monday night.
I understand why it's a story, but it's only a big deal if you don't listen to the soundbite.
He basically said the same thing I say at work, "I am the best person for this job, if not someone else would be sitting here instead of me."

I agree with a lot of you, gotta like the attitude. However, he should have done himself a favor and not given anyone any fodder to chew on all summer. This quote will probably hang over his head for awhile.
I like Joe. Prior to the Skins getting RG3 or Luck, I would have liked to have had him on our team, but the Skins fan base is just as fickle.

And then of course, there is the 1 dropped pass in the NE game that cost us another SB berth.
So for Joe to say he thinks he is the best, at least he has some actual proof for why he is -- independent of what his teammates have done in the playoffs the last 2 years.

Even though I agree that joe is a good QB, judging QBs by wins and losses is almost as stupid as judging pitchers by wins and losses.

I disagree that Joe should think this, maybe he should say this, but if he thinks it then the Ravens are in trouble. The best never believe they are the best and always work harder to become the best. Complacency is dangerous. Not that Joe is necessarily complacent.

Is it deja vu or did he say the same thing last offseason?

I like the passion. Eli Manning came out last year and said that he belongs among the elite, and went on to have a fantastic season and was right up there with the elite QB's last season. Now, I don't think Flacco believes he is the best QB in football (Nobody could be that delusional, right?). But I think this is good for him and I expect his on the field play to reflect his attitude and he'll have a great season.
