In order to build an NFL dynasty, a franchise needs to excel in many areas to compete for championships on a consistent basis.
Ultimately, the biggest reason for the success of NFL dynasties is due to the successful play at the quarterback position. That is especially true now in a league where both the rules and style of play favor the signal-caller and his offense.
Eli Manning earned his second championship in five years, and has proven to make the biggest throws late in game when it has mattered most.
Tom Brady and Peyton Manning give their respective teams hope for each season, as their play elevates the performance of their teammates to a higher level.
Though, the ability to select a franchise quarterback who eventually finds success isn't always easy. Fortunately, the amount of young quarterbacks who are finding success does bode well for the rest of the league.
Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson are bringing hope to their franchises and will make them contenders for years to come.
As the NFL awaits for the next greatest dynasty to form, the success starts and ends with the quarterback.
