NFL, The Rest

Frumped by


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

  1. B Diddy Says:

    Stamina is an interesting category for QB’s. Most QB’s don’t take plays/drives off. How is Tom Brady measured the best in “Stamina”?? Do they measure these guys on the sidelines and see who’s breathing the hardest when the D is on the field?

  2. Darren Brooks Says:

    why didnt the lions draft that tackle from Univversity of Maryland? in the forth round, and sign pacman, they let the bengals get him, dont you think thast would of been a better move? why did they keep anybody afilliated with matt millan? come on iam tired of watching my home town suffer from bad decisions from the front office, iam beginning to think this orginization likes losing, they will always be one or two plays away from greatness. Are you guys hiring?

  3. Ciaran Says:

    Thanks for reading, Darren.

    -Well, the Lions had every opportunity in the world to take a shot at signing Jones, but they passed. I have to think that means they simply didn’t want him.

    -They took a LT prospect in Jason Fox in the 4th Round.

    -I think you’ll see significant improvement from the Lions this year.

    -No, we’re not hiring at the moment.

    Thanks again for reading.
