Vicious Posted March 8, 2008 Share Posted March 8, 2008 I posted this in Pure Football, but I figured I'd get more responses here.What would you rather have? A great QB or a great team? Historically, if you were to compare the two it would seem that more great teams won with average QB's than great QB's won with average teams.I'll give you an example:1.) Brett Favre 5,377 completions out of 8,758 attempts 61.4 completion % 61,655 yards 7.0 yards per attempt with 442 TD's and 288 interceptions2.) Dan Marino 4,967 completions out of 8,358 attempts 59.4 completion % 61,361 yards 7.3 yards per attempt with 420 TD's and 252 interceptionsAll of that with one super bowl win between two of the greatest of all time. Now name me one QB that has won the super bowl without a great team. I am willing to bet there were more super bowl winning QB's who were average QB's with a great team than there were great QB's with an average team.I'm thinking we should definitely focus more on building a great team through the draft than going after the best of an average QB class at best. Redman proved to be capable of running an offense last year and barring injury should be plenty capable of being our QB for at least another year while this team is built the right way, not putting the buggy in front of the horse.
