QB Levels

In the offseason we start looking at lots of QBs who are available and suddenly everyone on the market is a "franchise" QB. It will become obvious in Sept that some of the dudes getting the big bucks are just OK, or worse.

So let's think about plugging QBs into a scale based on performance.

Level 1 - Actual Franchise QBs - The guys who can lift and carry a team to the playoffs and with a bit of help, win titles - future HoF. Guys at this level include Brady, Rogers, Brees, Roethisberger, Wilson. These guys don't go on the market.

Level 2 - Solid NFL QBs - You can win with these guys, and they can win games for you, but they can't carry you for seasons, or decades. Will only get to Canton as announcers. I'd put Eli here, Newton, Romo when he was playing, Luck if his arm hasn't fallen off, a lot of the younger guys who might move up to level 1, but don't have the history yet (Wentz, Goff). If you have a guy like this your not looking to move on. These guys usually do npt become free agents unless something odd happens, injury, coaching change etc.

Level 3 - Average Adequate - If your QB is in this classification, your probably not looking for a QB, but your team isn't QB focused. Flacco and Andy Dalton are the poster boys. Tannehill is here. I'd put Cousins sort of in the top side of this level. Prescott, Bortles. At best, every "top" QB in the draft is here until proven otherwise. This is where big money free agent QBs are born and ususally where they die.

Level 4 - Guys who take snaps - Everyone else. Below Average, if you win with a guy at this level it's because your team is excellent elsewhere (top D, or running game). These are all the teams that are throwing stupid money at high level 3 and level 2 guys. Most FAs come from this level.
