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.

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.
