Most Important Stat
Using traditional stats only (stats on a box score or back of a football card), what one stat do you think is the most important for evaluating talent?
For QB's: Comp %, Wins, Yards, TD to Int Ratio?
RB's: Yards, YPC, TD's?
WR and TE: See above
I know you can't fully evaluate based on one stat, but if you had to pick one and only one to look at, which one would you turn to?
QB- Comp. %
RB- Yards per Carry
WR- TD's/Yards (close call)
I think YAC is always a great tool for evaluating WR's/RB's. What a player does with the ball in his hands after being touched says alot about his abilities.
I think that it's a mistake to only look at a QB's performance with a single statistic, but I'd take completion %. Using a single statistic in this way is like just looking at the temperature to judge the weather. It may be 82 degrees outside but there's a category 3 hurricane. In this case the temperature doesn't adequately tell the weather.
There is nothing wrong with looking at multiple statistics to measure the QB performance.

54 million plus 6 million for the draft brings your scenario to $60 million
you still need to sign 2 QBs (2 million at least)since Tanny is the only one signed for next season
you need to resign or replace almost 20 more players
even at $15 million for the group your pushing $77 million
Now you're over what we'll have available(aprox $48 million) by 30 million at a minimum
plus the xtra money needed to make deals during the season for acorns
Signing that many free agents from other teams is just not realistic
QB's: TD to int ratio

I think I'd go with this. It's silly to boil a player down to a single statistic, but I think these probably tell the story the best.
