---- Do static pages really outweigh dynamic pages?

Nope, mod_rewrite maps requests for files in one directory format to an actual physical file on the filesystem of the server.
E.g. /prod/10 would be mapped to /products.php?id=10
I am just wondering whether it was worth it in your opinion. Google already has 400 of my php pages already in its index, afterall.
Its worth it for Google (I similarly converted a dynamic site with .php extensions into static-looking pages), and it's worth it for every other spider out there. Not all of them are as clever (or brave) as googlebot for spidering dynamic urls.
