Seems to me there are quite a few folks around these parts that believe it's 100% essential to have a top-shelf "franchise QB" on your team to have a any chance of winning consistently and challenging for playoffs and titles. I think we all realize the QB position in the NFL is right at the top of positional importance -- but I'm not sold on the fact you cannot play winning team football with anything less than a top 5 QB talent. For me, I remember the Marino days when we had the greatest talent EVER at the position (IMO) and yet -- no Championships. Last year I think Mahomes was the BEST QB in the league and yet -- didn't make the SB. Beyond that, Aaron Rogers has been the dominant QB talent in the league (IMO) over the past 7-10 years -- but only 1 championship. So the question is -- can we build an excellent TEAM that's capable of playing consistent winning football with QB play that's highly efficient and productive -- but not to the point where every outcome is hinged on his "greatness?" My take = it's still very much a TEAM game and of course the QB position is important. However, I still believe a QBs game is directly linked to the type/quality of organization he plays in -- and more specifically the (a) coaching, (b) system/scheme and (c) supporting cast he's surrounded by. Bottom line IMO -- there has to be more than one "golden boy" we can win with -- yes?
