Flacco - Franchise QB?

Tons and tons of debate about this during the game thread today. I'll throw the chew toy on the floor, go at it.

Hard to argue with the success he's had. Hasn't gotten to the Super Bowl yet, but his playoff record ain't bad at all.

I'd take him on my team.

He was pretty mediocre his first 6 games or so, and carried by the defense in those early wins.

But he has stepped up his game in the 4 or so games.

Came up with some huge plays today.

Good enough to take a team to a SB (and win it) and provides long-term, high-quality stability at the QB position.

Not elite, but because of all of the above qualities, I will define him as a franchise QB.

I would agree with you here on many fronts. Except I'd replace your first sentence with "Good enough to take a GOOD SUPPORTING CAST to a SB...."

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.

That was impressive, but can he be consistent?

This was what I expected at the beginning of the year when I drafted Flacco and Torrey Smith.

I wonder how Flacco would be playing with a staff that wasn't so damn conservative.

It's difficult to get into a rythm when you are only passing on third down plays.
