The quarterback led the Ravens to a 34-31 victory against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in the Super Bowl at New Orleans. Flacco completed a remarkable postseason run with 11 touchdown passes and no interceptions in four games. He is about to become a free agent.
Letterman asked the Super Bowl MVP if he had spoken to team owner Steve Bisciotti about a new contract.
"Well, you know, actually, I only talked to him a little bit before this game, but before the New England game, you know, he just came up to me and said, `Listen, this is our time, and go get `em. We have all the faith in you, and this is going to be your team for a long time,'" Flacco said.
