    When I think of pure arm strength, Id ont' think of guys like Marino.

    Its guys like... Elway...Favre... Vick (yes, Vick this high)...Young....Bradshaw...Bledsoe.....

    Vick was up there, for sure. I didnt put him on my list because it was tight, but he could be interchanged with anyone outside of Favre.

    From 50 greatest quarterbacks, by Peter King

    "It's true," said Mike Ditka, who was the Bears' tight end at the time of Bukich's legendary launch. "I saw Rudy do it. I was on the field that day. Now, I'd seen him try it before, and it'd go maybe 95. But he did throw it 100 that one time."

    Needless to say, Rudy Bukich is ranked #1. Not even Elway could throw a football that far (except the Nerf Vortex).

    Bobby Hebert has one of the best, most awesome throwing arms I've ever seen. I'm serious.

    Russel, Cutler, Manning Culpepper, and Big Ben all have stronger arms then brady. Not bragging dude, but I can heave a ball pretty close to 60 yards on a good day, thats about Bradys top. Other guys can do way ebtter then that on one knee.****, even Kyle Boller has a stronger arm then Brady. Good QB =/= strong arm, good god how many times do we have to say it?

    Was I the only one who thought this post was hilarious? Most of these arm strength tests arent in game, its just how much velocity you can get on the ball or how far you can throw it.

    60 yards really isnt that far, I doubt it was a bullet or anything, I also doubt he can throw it accuratley 60 yards....but he was talking about arm strength, not just being a good QB.

    I dont even see how merely playing in a game would effect how far you can throw a ball anyways. It obviously would effect your accuracy, but he is ONLY talking about how far he can throw the ball, stop talking about who is the BEST QB this thread is about arm strength. Quarterbacks like Jay Cutler have a much stronger arm than Tom Brady, but that doesnt mean hes a better QB.

    Nobody is "dissing" Tom Brady. Again, many people throw the ball 60 yards and THIS THREAD HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ACCURACY OR IN GAME PLAY, NOR DOES IT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH WHO IS THE BEST QUARTERBACK. Tom Brady doesnt have a strong arm, it doesnt mean he has a weak/dead arm like Phyllis Rivers, its just not as strong as Jay Cutler or anywhere even close to the top. I dont see why people should be required to post videos of quarterbacks throws. In those qb challenges many qbs would be throwing it 70+ yards, so 60 really isnt anything special.

    Ditka is one of many people who verified the throw in the full article. However, I'm not going to type up the entire thing.

    You might disagree with him at times, but Peter King is not one to make stuff up or publish false stories.
