If you will, this is like Moneyball where people are looking at the wrong stats. CHFF devised a more telling stat that has an amazing Correlation to Victory coefficient.
Let's try it another way. Who would you rather have, a QB who throws for 200 yards per game with 1 pick and a 60% comp % ? Or a QB who throws for 150 yards per game, runs for another 70 yards per game, and throws 0 picks with a 50% comp%?
I'd rather have option B, but you're going to be a bad team with either one.
And passing will always be, by far, the most important aspect of playing QB. If you can't throw the ball, none of the other stuff is important.
People talk about Russell Wilson and RGIII as if they aren't really good passers. They are.
