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.

I can easily say I was wrong about Flacco. Granted early on he was winning games off his defense's back but now he is carrying the defense.

Great way to build a franchise. Badass defense to carry the load while your QB develops. Defense gets old and gets carried by the QB later.

Good job Ozzy.

Since when did this become the definition of a franchise QB? Granted I only started watching the NFL in the 80's, but when I was growing up a franchise QB was a guy you could build a team around, not a guy to carry a shitty team because your coaches & FO were incompetent.

Caldwell has done a fantastic job in helping Joe develop IMO.

That's how I view a 'franchise' QB - a force multiplier that makes everyone else on his team better.

Flacco doesn't do that, IMO. He's not an accurate enough passer for long enough stretches for that. Brady, Brees, Rodgers and Peyton are guys that can throw 50 footballs and hit their target 48 times. They're smart decisionmakers that can run any offense they're given.

Flacco's not that level of guy. He's a very good quarterback and someone I would gladly have lead my team, but he's not to the level of the truly stellar, IMO.
but Superbowl bling is stellar. I take that 'risk' because I like my chances with Flacco as my guy. He's a bit inconsistent and I won't dispute that but I like the way he shows up and responds to adversity in big games when it counts.

The Chiefs didn't even play the same game as did SF and Bal did his season.
