Well I think the term used for Brady and Manning and McNabb would be Superstars not franchise.. those 3 can put their Teams on their backs and carry them to the Super Bowl... To me a FRANCHISE QB is someone that has the potential to be a Pro Bowler and can put up the results that gives you confidence that you wont need to draft a QB for 8-10 years.
Well Manning Brady and McNabb do/did that. They put up the results to win...theyre pro bowlers...and you dont have to draft another QB until they hit decline or retire. Unless youre talking about a young QB that is considered a "Franchise" QB and when he reaches that turns into a superstar

Take off the homer glasses and lay down the crack pipe please.
And I think many posters don't seem to know the difference between a starting QB and a franchise QB.
You've said a lot of crazy things, but I wouldn't question Mike Martz' resume at developing Quarterbacks. He hasn't had any that have Stanton's pure talent level. I actually don't think what he said was so crazy.
i don't even know where to start. probably by saying that the notion of 'franchise QB's' is capped by brett favre and his lifetime contract to the packers. i'm pretty sure he wins. that's a franchise QB. on the other end. marc bulger is still franchise QB nomenclature worthy, seeing as the rams probably won't look to upgrade from bulger for at least a few more years, and that's basically what i think the tag boils down to. not 'hey, this kid is the future, he's gonna be our franchise QB.' but, hey this guy is a solid starter who we want playing for the next five years. in that catagory, manning2, grossman, ben, delhomme, VY, cutler, leniart, et al. don't necessarly have i'm positive (barring injury) that you'll be starting in five years. but, you can say that about manning, brady, hasselbeck, brees, and palmer. right now. their consistancy over the past few years has shown with good care, these guys are worthy of the name.

United: "I actually went to the college I root for"
Pittsburgh - Big Ben was horrible last year, although that was to be expected with the accident and all, but he's not 'franchise' quite yet
Tenessee VY is what we call a 'potential franchise QB'
Dallas - Tony Romo... yeah... I'd say 'possible franchise QB
New York Giants - sure, Eli 'Clutch' Manning, that's a franchise QB for ya!
San Francisco - Alex Smith? you should have put this one under 'potential'
Arizona - same old story potential franchise QB
Teams with a possible franchise qb
New York Jets
There's just a few things wrong with your list. Plus you didn't mention 7 (or eight, I'm too lazy to count again) teams.
