Ravens running back Ray Rice thinks his quarterback is the best in the game right now, and he has two reasons.
The Super Bowl title is one, but Rice may have some mild head trauma after an accident during the Ravens victory parade.
Rice was the latest to help give Flacco all the negotiating leverage a man would ever need during an interview on WFAN (via SportsRadioInterviews.com).
“If you had to put it in perspective right now Joe Flacco is the best quarterback in football right now,” Rice said. “I’m not saying that because it’s my guy, but look who he’s beaten. He’s beaten Tom Brady, beat Peyton Manning, and who else is out there?
“I think by Joe Flacco winning Super Bowl MVP a lot of people will just see the personality that we all see. He is really laid back but there is a great guy under that uniform and he fits our huddle the way we need him to fit it. I’ve said it all along, we will go as far along as Joe Flacco wants to take us. This ride proves it. I know we have playmakers and we’re going to continue to bring playmakers around our offense. I have made a Pro Bowl and there are some guys on the offense who made Pro Bowls, but this guy is the Super Bowl MVP and it’s all well deserved.”
Rice also laughed about his bumpy ride at the parade, in which he fell off the float at one point.
“I’ve never seen nothing like that in my life,” he said. “I have to tell you a funny story, the float stopped short and I fell off it but I caught myself and I’m good though. Yeah I’m telling you that because you all are my boys,but Ray Rice has no injuries, I fell off the float but I’m good.
“I was so engaged in the fans so you don’t know when he float stops short. My teammates fell down and I fell forward. I caught myself in the push-up position, got back up and said ‘let’s party.”
And if Flacco gets best-QB-in-the-league money, Rice will be there to help him celebrate the next party the Ravens host.
