  • Does Mike Vick have the "Strongest" throwing arm in NFL histo

    I was watching the Eagles vs Colts and the some of those throws that were completed by Vick were jaw dropping missles to his receivers. Also, that throw he made from his own endzone was absolutley amazing, I mean with the flick of his wrist and the ball just explodes out of his hand. So the question is does Micheal Vick have the strongest arm in NFL history? I know some people may say Jamarcus Russell but I think it is disputable. In my opinion aside from Russell, no one else comes close. Your thoughts please.

      Yeah, Jeff George launched some absolute rockets in his day.

          I believe the saying was "Arm by NASA, Body by LEGO."

          Vick is very much in the conversation for best "functional" arm strength. He can throw lasers and the deep bombs.

            Yeah, Jeff George threw the prettiest ball the league has probably ever seen. His release was so compact, fast, and beautiful.

            That one season in Minnesota with Moss was pure sex on every deep ball.

                I still think it was/is Vick. I've seen them all play in one way or another, and Vick's arm just stands out a little more. It really was ridiculous at his peak.

                      Vick's throws just look so effortless. Just a flick of the wrist and he can laser it 20+ yards on a rope.

                      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.

                        Thats the truth. Vick has a extremely strong arm, not the best ever, but he makes it look so effortless. It looks like he barely gets behind it and it goes 30 yard in a second.

                          That's true though. Even the 40 yard lasers look like he just tosses a beer to his buddy 3 feet away.

                              People need to remember Vick's arm in his time when Atlanta when he was still a dumb QB. The velocity of his throws was unmatched. I always believed his receivers at the time got way too much flack for their drops because some of those throws were just uncatchable, despite being accurate, because the ball was just thrown too damn hard.
