I seem to remember Major Harris throwing a ball 70 yards from one knee.


Browning Nagle threw it through the uprights from his knees, from the 50.

More or less. It is all all about torque, but since the arm's throwing motion utilizes three distinct lever systems, it's more than just the rotator cuff. You have to take into consideration what's causing the force, the amount it creates and then how it's augmented with a longer lever arm. Ie. why those tall QBs like Glennon have an inherent advantage. Give me a solid arm and quick release any day of the week though.


yes i agree, and to add...the throwing motion can be broken down into three steps: cocking, accelerating and releasing. And kinda like you said they can be affected by the QB's height, strength, and flexibility But what makes each QB more capable than the next QB, is their ability to coordinate all these qualities into one fluid motion.

Tebow on one hand has very good arm attributes but fails to coordinate these into any type of fluid motion.

Jeff George


Jeff George played with track stars and still was able to over throw them by 5 yards consistently.

I remember hearing/reading that. Was during his rookie year in camp or something. Can't find any articles that mention it.


We might be quoting each other at this point.

Word. Chad Pennington could loft a ball about 65 yards, but we all know he had a jelly arm.

I'm sorry, I don't believe that.

 

If Chad could power a football anywhere near 65 yards downfield, lofted or not, he would be one of the top 20 QB's ever.

Too bad he was aiming for a receiver on the 20 at the time.

Before my time, but what about the "Mad Bomber?"  Darryl Lamonica.  He sure could sling it.  Most of these highlights are 40+ yard bombs, but they don't seem to indicate crazy arm strength.  Weird the way it comes off his motion.   It seems like the ball goes unnaturally up right out of his hand.

i dont understand why this is a shock. Vinny was a sick athlete at Miami and lasted 19 years in a league where the average is 3.

Saw him about a year ago at a fundraiser here on Long Island. He looked like he was still at his playing weight and in terrific condition. Probably a better QB than Sanchez is right now today.
