  • there's been several debates going on about this subject on other sites, obviously the home site chooses their guy... but with a non bias opinion who would you pick..

    i'd say it's between Flacco and Cam Newton, stafford's in there too.. you?

  • I'm not going to wax his knob(Like ESPN does 24/7) but Aaron Rodgers has a pretty strong arm, during the Superbowl against the Steelers I remember him throwing some frozen ropes around the field. Part of the difficulty defending him is he can deliver that ball in space so quickly it is hard for a defender to break on it.

    If we are talking strength without taking into account mechanics and throwing motion then you could maybe say Byron Leftwich or Jamarcus Russell types.

  • I'd say Cam. However Kaepernick can sure rifle it too. Flacco would be right with Kaep I think. Stafford and puffy faced loser Cutler would be right after them.

    On a sidenote has anyone noticed how Stafford has started throwing side arm/ 3 quarter a lot of the times. Looks disgusting.

  • i guess you would have to determine what qualifies as strength? being able to throw a 90mph fastball into a small window on a frozen rope, or being able to chuck it 70 yrds in the air... or to top this list would it require both? and yes leftwich has definitely got a cannon.....

  • The word is Flaco. I will say that Tjack had one hell of an arm. No, I have intentions of debating his QBing. I just remember a bomb he threw last year in the Baltimore game.

    kap has a very strong arm, but in no way is it obviously the strongest... for instance i'd take Ryans long ball over Kap's any day, and i didn't even add him to the poll... does that means Ryans arm is stronger, not necessarily, but he throws a better deep ball in my opinion....So does Flacco for that matter

  • Can't believe no one mentioned Ryan Mallett! I was kinda wanting us to draft him just because I wanted someone with a cannon, and i dont think i have seen anyone throw it harder/ further than in his highlight reels

  • Turbin, his guns would put just about anyone down, short and powerful over long and powerful tends to win since when on the table the long armed guy has to take a unnatural angle to put the short armed guy down.

  • Who cares? It's barely on the top 5 characteristics a qb needs and it's light years behind "smarts".

  • I don't really have a strong opinion on who has the strongest arm in the NFL.

    I would say that I don't think it's Kaepernick or Ryan.

    Kaepernick puts a lot of heat on his throws, but he doesn't tend to release the ball at it's highest point. They almost look like side-arm throws with a flicking motion. On a lot of his deep throws, it looks like the ball is thrown at a low angle so it doesn't stay in the air long enough.

    For Ryan, it appears it's the opposite. He doesn't seem to be able to put much heat behind his deep throws, so he throws the football at a high angle. The balls seem to have a lot of air time. The thing is Roddy White and Julio Jones are both able to physically overpower a lot of defensive backs and both are great at snagging jump balls so Ryan has an easier time with deep completions.

  • Michael Vick used to have a really strong arm while in Atlanta and he makes it look so effortless.

  • Cutler, dude has a gun and his throws are effortless

    If you are talking of any QB. I would go with Elway or Jeff George
