On the Eye on Sports blog, we have introduced the newest feature, an interblog Roundtable discussion where the Eye on Football, Eye on Baseball, Eye on Basketball and Eye on Hockey bloggers can step into a cage match and settle our differences with sharply-pointed words.

Today’s topic: which position is the most important in sports?

While we all know the correct answer is the quarterback, there are arguments to be made for the point guard, the goal-tender, and the starting pitcher.

But is this even an argument? *

*Well, I guess it is, since we’re having this conversation in the first place.

So check it out and you can see how the other blogs try to convince themselves that the quarterback isn’t the most important position in sports. We know the truth, though, don’t we?

Or as Will Brinson writes, “In basketball, teams can be built all kinds of different ways. A great center, a great point guard, run-and-gun, defensive-minded, etc., etc. The same thing works in football, of course, but there's one problem -- it won't work without a great quarterback. Not anymore, not in the NFL, which has become so QB-dominated that it's surprising we're even having this discussion.”
