LMAO!!! Commentator (wasn't paying attention close enough but know I heard it!) says "quarterbacks with two of the STRONGEST arms in the league" ...

Alright, you want to say Tom Brady is a Top 3 QB in the league, you won't see me argue. You want to argue Tom Brady is the very best QB in the league, you won't see me argue. You want to claim Tom Brady is already the best QB in the league, I'm not going to completely agree, but I'll acknowledge you can make an argument.

but ...

Tom Brady having one of the STRONGEST arms in the league? I mean, WTF. He's average in this department.

I just found that a little silly.

Good job by the Ravens covering all the underneath stuff to force the deep throw.

If Bill Belichick designed that plan SPECIFICALLY for the possibility Baltimore would burn/waste a timeout there, then damn, something as simple as that, is impressive to me and speaks volumes as to why coaching is so valuable in the league, if it came down to the end of the 2nd quarter and Ravens were a play or two away from being within FG range, but that burning of that timeout caused them to miss out. That's HUGE.

So you're going to say Tom Brady is "elite" basically in this specific category making the claim he has one of the STRONGEST arms in the league. IMO, when the term "strongest" is used, it could translate into how we consider the general term "elite" when debating quarterbacks.

In your opinion, who are the "elite" arm strength quarterbacks in the league? I'd love to see your list.

Show me a ranking in your opinion. Out of the 32 starting QB's, where does Brady land? Keep in mind we're talking arm strength ONLY here, not just someone's overall skill level.

There's not a single throw that Brady can't make. Not going to bother with some dumb list.

Do you realize what you just said? You said there's no throw Brady can't make; translation: he's one of the best quarterbacks ever, and when it comes to being accurate, perfecting timing, under pressure, on the run, and maybe even the ability to throw it pretty damn hard (but I'm sorry that doesn't mean he has "elite" or "strongest" arm strength.

That's what you said. You obviously don't have time to do "dumb list" and create such a list (and I don't mean to be disrespectful here, just saying making the argument Brady = one of the strongest arms is worthy of such) b/c you'd make yourself look like dumb shit.

Yes, Brady has an average arm.

If the Ravens don't find a way to flip the field position, they're f***ed.

I know you didn't ask me, BUT:

1. Joe Flacco
2. Matthew Stafford
3. Jay Cutler
4. Big Ben
5. Josh Freeman
6. Aaron Rodgers
7. Cam Newton
8. RGIII
9. Colin Kaepernick
10. Ryan Mallett


As you can see by #10 - Strong arm doesn't always = good QB. (John Skelton and Chad Henne probably belong on the list as well)


Starting QB's with the weakest arms:

1. Alex Smith
2. Ryan Fitzpatrick
3. Andy Dalton
4. Matt Schaub
5. Kevin Kolb

Payton, Brady, Luck don't have elite arm strength, but they have very good arm strength and they can make all of the NFL throws perfectly fine so it really doesn't matter if they have "elite" arm strength.

Ravens have started their three drives on the Patriots 8, 10, and 13. Meanwhile, the Patriots are starting another drive somewhere around midfield. Like I said, Baltimore is f***ed if they don't find a way to flip the field position. Their offense isn't good enough to sustain long drives and Tom Brady and the Patriots offense is too good to consistently keep out of the endzone if they'er starting around the 35-40 yard line.
