Originally posted by Oscar:That's a flawed argument. This presumes that the QB is the only player who "plays" for either of these things. A HOF QB behind a crap O-line, with a head coach who has his head in the ground and a defense that can't stop the "annexation of Puerto Rico" nullifies any kind of "play to win" argument you're trying to make.
What I'm getting at the only people who care about stats are fans and self centered individuals. Ask Trent Dilfer if he would trade his super bowl ring for a 5,000 yard season.
Football is the ultimate team sport. I always thought the QB always gets too much credit for a win and too much blame for a loss. Sure He pulls the trigger but 10 other guys have to do their job to make it work.
