    Nice stats; but what about a 'team-stat' which is more relative; taking into consideration percentage of passes completed, giveaways, bad decisions, outlet passes, pressure success, etc.

    But ... while the team stats can be used to compare the chemistry of one team selection to another team selection, the individual stats can be used to compare one player to another ... over a range of games ... to try to prepare a ranking of players by position in order to generate one team selection - or alternate team selections.
