The only way you could have made it so something could compete with QB, would've been to include an option that said "doggie style."

It's QB. No question.

IMO most important is Oline and Dline groups as a whole. no one position is the most important, its too debatable

Yes, the units that play in the trenches are definitely the most important as a whole. Everything starts there. But there is no single position that is more important than QB. I think most coaches/GM's and the like would agree.

It is definitely the fullback in the modern NFL. Half the teams don't even use them any more. Safety might even be ahead of linebackers and tight-ends on some teams, especially teams that run a tampa-2, the safeties are probably the most important people on the defense after the linemen.

True. I can't think of too many teams that use the fullback as more than a fast offensive lineman that runs at people.

Precisely correct about the Tampa-2.

Which is why I want the Bucs to draft Kenny Phillips.

Ed Reed and Bob Sanders say hi.

To win a championship, you need a collection of great talents at several positions, but I'd be shocked if the corrolation between having an elite QB and winning games wasn't higher than the same corrolation for having an elite player at any other position.

The LT.

Theres a very strong argument for LT. A team can be good with an average QB and sometimes even below average QBs, but few teams without a good QB protector do anything.

No doubt. Anyone that has anything to do with pro football will tell you that. As a singular option its absolutely QB. No question.
a great QB> vs. a great anyone.

Now if its Rex Grossman vs. Brian Urlacher, you take Urlacher hands down, but the talent level is completely lopsided.
Trent Dilfer does not have the same value as Ray Lewis. You can pick any QB off the scrap heap and get Dilfer.
If your building a team and you could have Joe Montana or Jerry Rice you take Montana every time, although its almost close but Rice was one of the greatest ever if not the greatest. Of coarse I guess the same could be said about Montana.
I think Reggie White VS. a great Qb would make me stop and think about it though. Reggie was absolutely incredible the way he could effect a game and everyone around him.

The LT takes out one player, that's it, one guy. A QB has an effect on every single defender when he has the ball, and even when he doesn't.

The quarterback is the most crucial position in ALL of sports, not only football. Calls the play in the huddle, gets up to the line and breaks down the defense, and then has to make decisions in the blink of an eye. If he doesn't do everything with absolute percision then it doesn't work. There's no other position in sports that demands so much and that is why they are the most important.

As a single position QB is the most important. I voted for OT because I thought it said OL, and I would pick a good OL over a good QB.

Take a look at the Super Bowl Winner: Peyton Manning. Boy he sure is a terrific QB. His line is above average, his RBs were decent, his receivers are teriffic, and his defense sucked for three quaters of the year. Peyton Manning was and will always be the catalyst to their victories. Look at what happen with the New Orleans Saints once they got a QB that can actually play; they WIN!

Because they dominated with an 11 player defense and had a very good ground game, which is 6+ people. Those are groups. Yes games are won in the trenches, but thats 4/5 people, a QB is one player. No ONE player has the effect that the QB does.

QB is the most important single player on the team, but the quality of the O-Line/D-Line is far more important to a team's success.

My most important is RB because with a solid running game it will force the defense to respect the run which will help the QB. Jake Plummer would have been just average without the amazing running game in Denver. Big Ben might not be anything great but maybe he had a down year but no doubt the running game helped him out.
