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.

That game tying TD was cool. He had to step up to avoid the sack and he fired off a strike between two corners.

With a third consecutive 4,000 yard season, Green joins Drew Bledsoe, Brett Favre, Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Dan Marino, Dan Fouts, Drew Brees, Kurt Warner, Tom Brady, Philip Rivers, Warren Moon, and Tony Romo as the only quarterbacks in NFL history to pass for more than 4,000 yards in three or more seasons during their careers
He had several very productive years here, and even though he had more picks than TD's his first year, still threw for over 3700 yards. Trent Green wasnt a great QB, but he was the entry level franchise QB, same as Flacco.

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.

No. I would rather swing for the fences and try to find our elite QB. Reid is a guy who loves to pass the ball a ton. I don't know that I'd trust Flacco in an unbalanced offense.

Never been a fan, and wouldn't want him on my team but it's hard to argue against the guy. He's more clutch than PM ever was.

Trent Green was absolutely a franchise QB. Elite? No. Franchise, yes.

You put him on Baltimore's team with Flacco's supporting cast, and I bet he'd be every bit as successful as Flacco has been.

Flacco is very good, but not great. He threw some deep balls today that had no right being caught. Today was more about horrible pass D than Flacco being a franchise QB.

If Flacco can go on the road and beat the Patriots or Texans, and be one of the major factors, maybe I'll change my mind.

He was not a franchise QB because of his short time with the team. Not enough years.

Flacco has only had one more year, and they have comparable numbers except for Greens massive advantage in yardage. Trent was a fledgling franchise QB whos career was ended with a massive concussion.

Flacco is a fledgling franchise QB with a defense, hence the playoff wins. I think they are very comparable at this point in Flaccos carreer
