Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco's national McDonald's commercial is out, and it falls short of expectations.

The Brothers Manning's commercial is in a class by itself, and it's going to be difficult for any athlete to top that anytime soon. But even the spot featuring Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton -- the "Smell Like Victory" one -- is more entertaining.

In the McDonald's ad, Flacco shares air time with Super Bowl counterpart Colin Kaepernick (what commercial isn't he in right now?) as they compete for chicken wings. It's in homage to the commercials featuring Michael Jordan and Larry Bird, but this spot is more camp than classic. The best part is a reference to last season's Super Bowl.
