It’s official: Matthew Stafford has the strongest arm in the NFL

Matthew Stafford has the strongest arm in the NFL Now if he could just stay off his backside long enough to put it to good use, who knows; maybe the Lions could get above .500 for the first time in a decade.

Seriously, though. Go ahead. Tell your friends. Given the immeasurable appeal and influence the Madden franchise has on the masses, Sundays at the bar shall no longer be graced by the classic “biggest arm” debate. No more inebriated oral dissertations on the physics of velocity versus distance. No more girlfriends wondering just who the hell Jay Cutler is — The one with the weak chin? Yeah, that’s him — it’s all over, and the folks at EA Sports are the ones to blame.

Indeed, the evil empire of sports video gaming recently released a sneak peek of some of its Madden 2011 Quarterbacks, and, with a “Throwing Power” rating of 97, Stafford shall now and forever be known as having the biggest and baddest of all the “laser, rocket arms” launching pigskins during the 2010 season.

In other news, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees are really, really good NFL QB’s — almost perfect, in fact, with 99 overall ratings — and the league’s suspected bias against the non-traditional, “athletic” QB is further confirmed by Vince Young’s 79.

Expect numerous “who’s better, who’s best?” arguments to come to screeching halts this Fall when these figures start getting thrown around; rosy cheeks will be abound. Get more ammunition here

Garrard’s stat line just SCREAMS Pro Bowl;

3,597 yards, 15 TDs, 10 Ints, 60.9% completions and a gaudy 83.5 QB rating

ESPN story

Of course, it isnt Garrard’s fault.  A good guy and an ok QB…but it speaks to how muddled QB play is in the league after the top tier and how guys just dont care about the game.
