Per Hervoyel, request: Let's get a sense of the way Teddy Bridgewater is viewed PRIOR to his bowl game. So the basic question is whether or not Teddy Bridgewater is a franchise quarterback. Since the very notion of a Franchise Quarterback is in dispute, I will attempt to provide a working definition of the term. In my mind, a franchise player is one who excels at his position. He is one of top player at his position in the league. He is able to singlehandedly positively affect the outcome of the game. When the outcome of the game is in doubt, he steps up, and delivers the necessary play(s) that take a potential loss and turn them into a win. These players are men who are considered cornerstones of the offense and the team in general. If you wish to modify or edit my working definition you are welcome, but please do vote in the poll.
