What is the use of the franchise player policy in the National Football League?
Btw, what is the franchise player policy in the National Football League?
The Atlanta Falcons wanted to make their good QB, Jeff George(excellent arm), a franchise player, but it turned out he yelled at the coach on tv!
The player was traded, and the coach was fired later. He (June Jones, the coach) went to Hawaii where the run and shoot proved more applicable to that team's circumstances, and George went to the Raiders or something(I forget).
Now, the Falcons QB and franchise player Michael Vick has a broken leg situation and isn't playing. So, what is the point of having an injured franchise? There is already in the NFL a franchise owner, coach, etc., and isn't football a team sport too?
To me, making player roles more different than they have to be is like having a cable guy for your tv antenna!
