In the past few months, especially since both Ray Lewis and Ed Reed left, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has become a magnet for quotes.

Today is no different as the Ravens signal caller told Matt Zenitz that Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is quickly becoming his favorite player in college football.

Per the Carroll County Times:

As for Flacco, he brought up Manziel while answering a question Sunday that had to do with the negative reaction fans in Denver had to a banner with his picture on it being put on the Broncos’ stadium by the NFL in an attempt to advertise the upcoming regular season opener between Baltimore and Denver.

First of all, Flacco jokingly emphasized that he had nothing to do with the banner being put on the stadium, but he then went on to say with a smile, “But hey, it’s cool. Being hated is not a bad thing.”

“I don’t know if I’ll be too popular for this,” Flacco added. “But I don’t know how I really felt about Johnny Manziel, but I feel like now everyone hates him. He’s quickly becoming my favorite player in college football.”
