Who said it shouldn't be a factor? No one is saying stats count for nothing. But you should factor in everything: Stats, big game performances, championships won, overall wins, technique, fourth quarter comebacks.
Certainly you should look at situation. There are a lot of great players that haven't been on good teams. It's not Tony G's fault he plays for a crappy franchise like the Chiefs. Most people when asked though will take the player with rings and comparable stats to one with better stats and no rings. 10 out of 10 fans not living in Miami would rather have Joe Montana on their team than Dan Marino. But Dan has better stats! I know that's hard for you to understand, but winning > stats.
