But also agree with how you separated "franchise" from "elite." There are about 4-5 elite QBs in the league in any era, and no team should beat themselves up for not finding them. Flacco isn't in that category and I don't think he ever will be.
That's fair. He's an unusual case in that he doesn't need to be carried, but he's not going to carry a team consistently, either.
