    What's his Arm Strength rating on Madden? That might be a good barometer.

    Can't say where Ryan ranks amongst his peers......all I know is that he has looked perfectly capable of making every throw.
    Rodgers doesn´t have a great arm? why did you say that?

    I would bet good money his arm is stronger than Ryan's, He is up there and has nothing to feel ashamed of in regards to arm strength.
    Jay Fiedler can take his'n and lose to your'n.....or take your'n and lose to his'n.

    Yup, definitely not a cannon arm, but more than enough to make all the throws. From what I've seen at least, I think.

    easily top ten. but some of those guys on the top 10 list, some have about the same, maybe some of them are tied? and where is big ben on that list? for me, having watched all of them, he's probably number 1.

    Well let me put it to you this way John Elway was widely regarded as having the biggest arm of the class of 83 and maybe even of all time in terms this discussion and I watch him on ESPN throw a ball from endzone to endzone with no pads. In a game however that changes completely and accuracy comes into play, kinda like a long drive competition in golf, if it was easy to drive a 400+ yard drive accurately everyone would be working on it.

    Elway had a cannon, Marino was just under him in terms of length, Favre, Vick, Cunningham all slingers and one of the biggest arms ever was believe it or not, Jeff George.

    Ranking arms:

    Elway/Cunningham either 1 or 2 take your pick which one.
    George at 3
    Favre at 4
    Vick at 5
    and finally Marino at 6th or so, there are some others who could arguably be included one being Russell dude had a huge arm to go with his huge gut.

    So if the OP's list above holds true and 1 and 2 is Rogers and Flacco I can assure you they are not Elway and Cunningham in terms of arm strength, more like Vick level so that would mean 1 through 5 on the OP"s list are a wash in terms of strength and I can see that. To be honest I'd put Tannehill right now on level with Cutler, they both have the arm to sling if they need to get it down field.

    Accuracy > Arm strength

    He happens to have a great combo of both
    "Fundamentals, technique, execution -- primary. Scheme -- secondary."

    "We will incorporate an aggressive, up-tempo, attacking style in all three phases of the game."


    "Our team will play with discipline, poise, and maximum effort."

    RT has a good arm that will get better with some time/technical teaching. Having a cannon is a good thing, but you gotta be able to get it in the range of the wr. Throwing a deep ball over a wr head or out of bounds doesn't do much.

    Arm strength to the point of?

    I can't think of any starting NFL QB that can't throw a 60 yard bomb. It's more about touch and timing.

    I don't think he has a rocket arm. but damn does he throw a beautiful ball. seriously, it's not homer-ism... if I had to describe his throwing style i'd call him a finesse thrower. he can put the mustard on the ball but I wouldn't say top 10 arm strength.
