IMO, average would be something around 14-20 considering 16 is dead middle.
I claim he's average, you claim he's equipped with one of the strongest arms in the league (which sounds like you're describing as "elite" in QB comparison). So let's say elite is Top 5; hell let's be generous and say Top 7.
IMO, Tom Brady is the best QB in the National Football League today. I think he'll complete his career the GOAT, but in a category as simple, non-complex, plain-as-day when talking about PURE ARM STRENGTH all that "Brady is so damn good he just has one of the strongest, oh, excuse me I maybe meant best arms in the league..." etc. maybe just now backing out of an argument, or whatever.
It's all good. Brady's arm is one of the best in the league when you're talking about ALL facets of what comes with the quarterback position. I'm pretty confident you know you've backed yourself into a corner with the STRONGEST ARM STRENGTH and you're attempting to save face by just using vague terms such as "one of the best arms in the NFL" etc... which doesn't actually define individual attributes.
I don't know how many more times you're going to ignore an actual list, and keep talking about how Brady's arm itself is just "so damn good" as an attempt to sweep under the rug the topic of sheer arm strength.
The most SMH'n thing about this is, Brady's lack of being an elite and/or having one of the actual STRONGEST arms in the league, TAKES ABSOLUTELY *** NOTHING *** AWAY from Brady's level of greatness. It doesn't put him in a less of a light. It doesn't make him any less great.
The simple truth is, not every quarterback can have the greatest arm in the league. In fact, while Flacco himself and may other experts agree, I don't believe Flacco personally has the "strongest" arm out there.
I think sometimes we find ourselves in discussions where we're like "oh, I backed right into that one" yet we hit the *reply* button with "Brady has one of the better
arms in the league" ... attempting to disillusion the discussion of just ARM STRENGTH (which is the ONLY argument I've been trying to make here with you, but you seemingly keep trying to dodge the specific sole only arm strength discussion point).
I get it already. You keep making the obviously true statement Brady has one of the best arms in the league; who's going to argue against that, since "best arms in the league" encompasses anything and everything, and you have yet to address your list, ranking, discussions as to why, how, etc. Brady has one of the STRONGEST ARMS in the league. That is what YOU said. I just want to you illustrate to me and convince me he's elite here (because when you say "one of the strongest arms in the league" is the same as saying one of the best quarterbacks in the league, one of the best teams in the league, one of the best coaches in the league... we're talking a general discussion of "elite" how we compare QBs by default).
