Yeah, the whole Franchise QB label is kind of BS, subjective, and pretty much irrelevant. When I hear the term "Franchise QB" only 3 names come to mind.  

 

Brady

P Manning

and maybe Aaron Rodgers.

 

Don't forget Breesus. I'd put him up there no doubt.

Just said he is not yet a "franchise QB" in his opinion because he hasn't won yet in the playoffs. Said two things make a franchise QB, how much they are paid and how much they win in the post season.

I'm guessing Luck is.

Football is a crazy sport where the most talented players aren't normally given their dues while the least talented(the QBs) players are awarded with them. That's why the masses feel more at ease with football more than basketball where you won't be seeing a guy like Birdman given the credit for Lebron's accomplishments. For me, I don't give give a poo how many yards or TDs Payton Manning throw for because his receivers have as many. If Cam's ability can be undermined so can all other QBs. But, unlike all other QBs, Cam's rushing yardages and TDs are all strictly his. Anyhow, those nonsense only matters if you listen to sports radios or read useless sports article. If you just follow the sport on Sundays & Mondays and then call it a day those opinions don't matter. Fact!

 

Fact is, Cam will get paid a $100 mil contract and will be playing for the panthers the next 5-6 years.

All that matters is that Gettleman has said Cam is a franchise QB

Last I checked, the team's front office gets to decide who their franchise QB is or will be.

 

In the case of the Panthers, Mr. G said Cam is the franchise QB, therefore he is. Regardless of what Florio or any other dumbass may say.

So is Andy dalton and Matt Ryan not franchise qb's either?

 

I would actually agree with that statement, and I can say so objectively.

 

I'd throw Tony Romo in there too.

That's a really shortsighted way of defining a franchise QB (and that's a nice way to say it).

 

It's kind of like "MVP".  Is it the best player or the most valuable player?

No Drew Brees?

 

Eli?  Flacco?  Cutler?

 

(not saying they are, just asking your thoughts)

LOL, so when Cam does when a playoff game where will Florio move the goalposts?

Who cares what Mike Florio's made up definition of a franchise QB is.  The only person's opinions that matter are Gettleman and Richardson.  They've decided he's a franchise QB.  Go F yourself Florio.

He didn't come to mind but as McNasty said...Brees would probably fall in with Aaron Rodgers for me. Eli, Flacco, Cutler I just don't consider franchise QB's but I surely can see why some people would think so.

 

Give me a QB that no matter what is going on around him, injuries, bad coaching, drama, etc....you just know that 90% of the time they will consistantly put their team on their back and carry that franchise  to the playoffs year after year.

 

P Manning and Tom Terrific will do just that.

 

Rodgers and Brees are capable of doing that.

 

Just my subjective high stadard view of a true franchise QB

 

 

and oh yeah.....Nick Foles also. :thumbsu:

    • I have a weird suspicion we're really interested in Ross to many's dismay.  Last year proved in too many wats how much we need a playmaker and in a major way.  Looking just at in-game skills, Ross is the best playmaker in the draft.  I feel better about him than the board did about Brandin Cooks in his draft.  We need to draft someone clearly ahead of Shepard/Johnson and to be our third in volume receiving option behind Olsen and KB.   I can also see that causing a stir here so it'd be an entertaining summer for inline fandom.    
    •   Allen is an intriguing prospect. I just wish I had more faith in his versatility. IMO, we need DE more than another DT. Even if that DT is pretty dang good.   Ross? Really? I love everything about him. Except...those knees, and that shoulder. Small guys with injury problems in college? Not high on my list. But hey, that's just me. We can still get a talented kid who doesn't have injury concerns. Just not at 8.   Now a CB? That tickles my fancy. As much as I would love a Hog Mollie at DE. A top flight CB does not repulse me. But...to me, CB is like WR. We should still be able to get a talented kid, even in the 2nd.   Man. I don't know. Part of me wants that Hog Mollie DE. Part of me wants a kid that can scare a Defense. I just am of the mind that we need Offense more so than Defense. But, Fournette is the only Offensive player worthy of that 8 slot. Wishy washy is my name.   Other than that. Thanks for playing.
