Some good thoughts here, a la Moneyball and the Beane approach to baseball. Obviously statistical approaches are incomplete; the Titans benched Vince Young after an unsatisfying start to his career (Young had a very good completion rate as a college player; not stellar, but very good), but now find themselves starting him again, to much better results. I would be interested to know how the statistical component relates to psychological profiling. In other words, how much of a "leader" mentality or "play to the whistle" thought process does a QB need in order complement his completion percentage? The Cowboys lucked into a value with Tony Romo, but have been maddened by his decision-making skills (less so this season, but you get the point). Also: does D1 vs. D2 or D3 experience factor in?
