    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)
    TE- TD's

    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

    Fasano
    Clemons
    Starks
    Amaya
    Culver
    Barker
    Brown
    Feinga
    Murtha
    Garner
    Freeny
    Mastrud
    McCann
    McDaniel
    Marlon Moore
    Spitler
    Stanford
    Thigpen

    Signing that many free agents from other teams is just not realistic

    Wins are too hard to just pin on the QB. Comp % is too easy to manipulate with short passes (4yd pass on 3rd and 8).

    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.

    I've also shown you that cutting certain players saves another 14 mil, we will be adding 9 draft picks plus UDFA which will be getting minimums so we do not need to re-sign your entire list. There's a reason why my re-sign list doesn't have Fasano, Clemons, Starks etc....I'm not re-signing them!
