Tim Tebow is the story in the NFL that everybody is talking about.

Apparently that bothers some of the players around the league, including Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.

ProFootballTalk reports that Flacco spoke about his feelings on the Ravens and Tebow on WNST radio in Baltimore.

"If you watched SportsCenter today, it was Tim Tebow then something else, Tim Tebow then something else, and Tim Tebow then something else.  When we beat the Steelers, were we on TV?  No. I couldn’t even find a Baltimore Ravens highlight...

We don’t always get our respect but you gotta deal with it and go out there every week and just win football games."

Fair enough.

Tebow is getting a lot of media coverage, much of which he really may not deserve.

But, is Flacco really a guy that has the right to stand up and say that?

I could understand if Aaron Rodgers was frustrated with the coverage. He is having one of the greatest seasons ever at quarterback and has the Packers on pace for an undefeated season.

I could understand if Drew Brees or Tom Brady were bothered by this. They are top-tier quarterbacks carrying their team each and every week.

I don't understand Joe Flacco speaking out.

Sure, he wants some respect. He wants the Ravens to get some attention.

But the Ravens aren't winning games the same way that the Broncos are.

Why are the Broncos and Tebow on highlights all week long? It's because they mount amazing comebacks every single week.

It looks like they are going to lose, but suddenly they win.

Tebow and the Broncos are putting on a show each and every week. They are giving fans something to watch and talk about.

Flacco is boring. Watching the Ravens offense is like watching paint dry. If it wasn't for the third-ranked scoring defense this team wouldn't even get the minimal attention they do get.

Here is some advice for Mr. Flacco:

Stop worrying about Tebow. Who cares what a quarterback over in the AFC West is doing?

Worry about beating the San Diego Chargers. Worry about the Pittsburgh Steelers. Worry about winning the AFC North.

Tim Tebow should be the least of your concerns.
