    you obviously haven't watched Rodgers at all. he has a God Darn howitzer for an arm. besides arm strength is overrated. nobody ever accused montana of having a cannon. like was said before accuracy and timing trumps arm strength. ryan leaf had a big arm how did that work out

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

    Good points and I agree with most. But timing and accuracy can sometimes be taken away by great Defenses.
    Having a cannon arm, that can squeeze throws into tight windows, gives a huge edge in that regard.
    Look at Pennington for example, great accuracy. A wr may be open when Pennington begins his throw.
    But by the time the ball reaches it's target, the defender has closed the gap considerably, leading to an incomplete pass or no run after the catch opportunity.

    Of course, having a cannon doesn't solve accuracy issues.

    RT has a live arm -- much better than john beck, that's for sure. However, he doesn't have as strong an arm as Flacco.

    What he DOES have is a quick release and an excellent arm -- plenty good enough to throw downfield deep. Watch game tape on him, and look at how many times he's throwing downfield to WRs that are slower than the DBs -- yet he almost always puts it to where the WR or no-one can make the catch [most often incomplete, due to extremely slowfooted WRs, or, in the case of a faster WRs, dropped balls or otherwise incomplete].

    One thing I noticed, however, is that Tanny couldn't always step into his throws due to poor OL play and/or sprint outs... he most always still have enough on the ball to make the completion or give it a chance to be completed.

    Kaepernick has a major fastball, HOWEVER, he also has a major windup and slow release to go with it.

    Good thing the read/option usually buys him extra time -- along w. the far and away best OL in the game. Otherwise that slow release would cost him some bigtime hits.

    This just goes to show, you can have the arm, but if you don't have the smarts to play in the NFL you won't last very long.

    As far as Tannehill, he's got quite an arm and seems to have the smarts, we just need to get him some more explosive and consistent tools to work with.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

    If QB was measured by arm strength then Jamarcus Russel and Jeff George would be Canton bound. Joe Montana, Tom Brady, Steve Young don't/didn't have great arms and they came out just fine.

    As far as pure arm strength right now I'm thinking Flacco, Stafford, Vick, Cutler, Newton, Kap are top five. Rothesberger, Freeman, Rogers. RT, RG3 are in the 2nd 5 discussion.

    Is this starters only? If this list includes back ups, Ryan Mallett would be top 5.
