    40 from his fat ass
    60 from a knee
    80 standing

    its ok you were only exaggerated 150% of what he actually did, which is probably close to the same as what everyone else is doing haha.

    dont know why youre all saying this crap though, there is clear sources saying your wrong. just look it up. damn

        actually he exaggerated 50%, considering that's how percentages work.

          Vick appears to have sacrificed arm strength for accuracy though. He's playing out of his mind right now and is just carving up defenses with beautiful passes.
          I would agree with you here, however, he still struggles with accuracy over the middle. I don't know what it is, but that has been the one area of his game this season that has shown up as a negative. It might have something to do with him being relatively short, and our linemen being tall (most of our interior O-linemen are taller than Vick) or some lingering doubt in his mind, but that has been his one inconsistency this season. For those that haven't noticed it yet, pay some extra attention to his throws over the middle in next week's game if you watch...

                  Honestly, all I remember of Jeff George is his "washed up days", and even those are hazy. I am too young to remember Jeff George, the prospect, and much of the board is of the age that wouldn't really remember him as a prospect, which is why it seems that he isn't getting a lot of respect.

                    Mallett has a big arm, but he isn't even close to Vick or Boller or JaMarcus Russell. More like Brett Favre.

                            You guys are idiots. This man had the strongest arm that I've ever seen by far.

                              Why would any man let his wife go out in public with a see-thru blouse and no bra?

                              Anyways, George has to be on the top of my list. Followed by Russel.

                                This is kinda impossible to quantify in any real way.

                                What I always though was amazing about Vick's arm was the seemingly nonchalant and loose wind-up while his body is fading away from his throwing target which still winds up in a rocket throw. Vick has made as many "wow" throws as any quarterback I've ever seen.

                                That said, guys like Russell or George were guys who'd stand tall in the pocket and would get the ball out so quickly and that ball would move so fast that they made 20 yard in-routes look like 8-yard in-routes. The ball would just disappear and the wide receiver would suddenly have it.

                                example (Russell in college, and I'd like to stress this clip is at normal speed).


                                Not to suggest that Vick is somehow incapable of this, just that he rarely put himself in the position to make those kinds of throws. His entire package made his arm more impressive by association, but guys like George or Russell impressed me solely by their arms alone.
