Nice...I had a buddy (Bengals fan) that won as well. I should have gone when it was on Chitown those two years. Nashville was the first...and won’t be the last.
It’s such an amazing event for anybody who is a fan of the NFL.
I don't remember people saying either Manning or Luck did not have arm strength. I do remember in comparison Leaf was said to have a stronger arm, but I've seen no mention of people questioning whether manning had the arm strength to make NFL throws.
But I did find this article very interesting. It was a panel of 5 guys debating the merits of Leaf and Manning. And these are not just any 5 guys
So a pretty good group of people. Here is the article for those that are interested, it's a great piece
But what caught my eye at the end of the article and what I think applies most to this thread is this
Notice a big arm (or a live arm seems to be the key phrase this year) is not on the list.
I know, people will point to Mahomes and his arm and mahomes has a monster arm, but so did Jamarcus Russell and Ryan Leaf and Jeff George, but Mahomes has the top 3 plus a monster arm.
Ding ding...That was my point exactly. I was disappointed they drafted him so high. Not necessarily disappointed in the production we got from him. I knew he'd be a project/ work in progress and IMO thought we couldve got more bang for our buck with the pick.
