I'd even venture to say that Flacco was just only slightly less, if not just as productive as Eli was this past season.
Which one is the boarder-line elite franchise QB? Which one is the average-at-best QB?
As far as the receivers not getting over 1,000 yards goes...pretty irrelevant to me. It doesn't matter who is catching the ball, he is getting it to them and putting up yards and numbers, while also limiting his turnovers and helping them win games. Sounds like a franchise QB to me.

I guess our point of view of what a franchise QB is is where the division occurs. When I think franchise QB I think of a guy who leads his team, who makes the players around him better, who can carry his team when the running game is struggling, who can shred an opposing defense with his arm, who makes opposing defenses worry...Flacco is none of those things. For me, a franchise QB isn't just a guy who doesn't screw up and lose the game.
Flacco is 28 years old. Arguably he has 4 or 5 good years left before he starts to decline. Assuming he plays at this same level with similar stats he will finish somewhere around 15th-20th in passing yards and 25th-33rd in TDs. I just don't see franchise QB in those career numbers.

I guess we might be able to agree that we hardly ever seem to see eye-to-eye on much, haha.

I think we could agree more often if you would just admit that I am right more often
