I just went back and looked again at my comment. No where did I say the word ever. I was not dealing with the entire history of the NFL. I was inferring today — currently. There may indeed be a current left tackle with sub-33 inch arms. If there is, I’m not aware of him, and no one has come forward with a name.
If you want to point to Joe Thomas — great. But that doesn’t change anything I said, or my view of what we’d like to acquire.
If you want to say I’m not 100 percent right, I’m only 99.8 percent right, so be it. Otherwise, not sure what else I can say....
Well yes no one is denying having longer arms helps. Just like height in the NBA helps, but you had made it sound like not one LT in the NFL has ever had 32 inch arms. That is why I feel your response seems to be back tracking your original quip. Truth be told one of the best LTs of the modern era had very short arms.
