really guy... really??? No, not every QB has arm strength... That's completely and utterly laughable.

take my word on this one....

I created a thread last year about RG3 and Andrew Luck stating that I thought RG3 would be better then Luck and I still stand behind that... RG3 IMO is and will be a Hall of fame QB...as Luck might be too.... I just thought if it was my franchise I would take RG3 allllll Day over Luck
Yep.....I remember that thread..............good call on RG3.........hopefully both he & Luck have long careers to become the Elway/Marino tandem of this generation.

ok boom- which qb's taken (you can pick a round or go rounds 1-7 if you wish) lack arm strength?  Yes, you have a Ty Detmer taken by GB in '92 that lacks arm strength who got drafted, but since the draft went 7 rounds, the majority of qb's taken have the quality of 'arm strength'; thus 'arm strength' being a 'dime-a-dozen' type quality.   also, the 96 qb's on nfl rosters all have 'arm strength'.  accuracy, is the trait they covet, hence why some are first teamers, and some hold the clipboard.  those other attributes you listed are also very important- processing info, leadership abilities, etc... but the point of the debate was that you left off the #1 quality which is accuracy!  yes, in a way you can say you don't even get in the league if you don't have a quality arm so arm strength is as important as speed is to a wr.   but the number 1 thing that seperates these guys is accuracy!

Though Manuel will fail because he sucksThe Bills are into sabermetrics now i guess by drafting Manuel sabermetrics doesn't work

 

u said RG3 was gonna suck in the NFL bc of his tattoos last season

no d-up i said he wouldn't ever win a title. QB's with Long hair,tattoos,piercings don't win titles. Look it up nobody wants 2 do that because i'm right

You can have rg3 i'll take Luck and beat you every time

Isnt Glennon the Idiot QB that got his coach fired at NC State?

the same coach who thought Glennon was just as good if not better than Russel Wilson

Glennon will be the same as his coach in a year or two, UNEMPLOYED

Arm strength over accuracy and anticipation? Sure be able to wing it 70 yards is great but how often do these guys really need to throw that far? Most deep throws are under 50 yards in air. You don't need the strongest arm to throw an out route if you know when and where. Luck, RG3, and Tannehill all go before EJ or Geno for those reasons. 

I've watched EJ start for 2 years and he struggles reading defenses and be able to adjust. Maybe they coach him up. As a FSU fan I think he is closer to a 4th round talent than the first.

Don't worry train when people don't have an answer for something they play the race card. So osirus just played the card. Thats his right. I've said this a 1000 times i don't want my qb to have long hair,tattoos,piercings. But he wants to play the race card even though i've never brought up raceYou can accuse me of what you want folks but get your facts right when you do it
