This phrase gets tossed around a lot. But i have yet to see a real definition of what this really is. 

Is it about skills? is it about wins?   

is it a player like RGIII, Cam Newton, Colin Kaepernick? or is it Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning? 

What is your definition of a franchise qb?

I think for better or worse a franchise qb is the player sufficient enough to stop looking for a replacement and fill the position. They may not be hall of famers or Super Bowl champions on their own but he's good enough to win games and good enough that someone thinks they can build around him. I think jay cutler is a franchise qb but I doubt he'll be remembered for anything special.

Not to poo on your thread bro but you have just created another 10 page thread on what Cam is or isn't. At this rate Cam needs his own damn section on the Huddle.

everything in here turns into some discussion about cam. we could be talking about the defense and he will come up. i hope it doesnt turn into that. i want people to discuss the topic minus cam.

really?  have you ever looked at something and someone came behind you and saw something completely different?  everyone has a view point on this. i am just asking to give your definition of what you see.

Let me put it this way.

If you think a guy averaging more than 30 total TDs over his first two years isn't one, you are probably never going to have one.

It's like relationships man you can move on from woman to woman looking for the "one", but at some point you'll realize it's not the woman that's the problem.

Franchise QB: a single player that can perform several duties necessary to become a great QB, have skills that are above average, be able to lead the men around him, be able to instill a trust within not only the team but the staff the front office and the fans, be able to motivate, rally and uplift his teammates. Be able to absorb all blame and praise in the same fashion and be cool under pressure.

That would be my definition of a franchise QB.

i believe that too,   

But i am looking more for whats peoples opinion on what makes a franchise qb. 

 

my opinion is that there really is not a true definition of a franchise qb. hopefully in this thread you will see a range of opinions which will showcase that. i think that when you have a qb you truly trust and believe then that becomes your "franchise qb"

Don't think there is such a thing until the guy has been in the league for 3 yrs.

 

RGIII  no

Luck  no

Cam  no

Kap   no

 

Once you see these guys get their second contract, you will know whether their GM's think they are a franchise QB

 

Wilson might be the first one to make it, possibly followed by Luck, ginger Bengal, and one dark horse might be Tannehill.

 

Second wave might be Kap and Cam, if they can follow former success

 

But again, I don't see any of them there just yet

on a side note. people talk about leadership when it comes to a qb.  this could be an important trait, but i dont know how important that is. does leadership really make a team better from the qbs position?

Well think about it. When working in a group the first thing that happens is a hierarchy is formed. Those with leadership skills assume those rolls and begin to dole out the tasks at hand. Do you not find it easier to complete your assigned task if that is the only thing to worry about? The leader has taken control of the situation allowing you to focus solely on your responsibility.
