How about a QB 6' 5" "with a rocket laser arm".

I just don't think Grossman or Carr has the arm of Peyton Manning, nor Carlson Palmer. Others on the list I agree with.

1. Brett Favre
2. Carson Palmer
3. Peyton Manning

Those are the only three that I can think of that have a rocket launcher for an arm. I'm not even sure Manning has that strong of an arm but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

I know what you said. I have seen Peyton zip the ball all around the field on the Texans too many times (9 and counting), too many 25 to 30 yard strikes to Stockley in the slot to know he has a cannon (way better than Carr's sand wedge deep ball).

Byron Leftwich won a offseason tournament for QBs to see who could throw the farthest. I think he threw it 60 somthing yards so peytons 25 to 30 yard strikes dont count as a cannon to me. Even though alot of them turn into a 60 yard TD.

Kyle Boiler had a 60 yrder from his knees in a commercial/clip. I think that sums it up who wins.

Vick threw a ball from the 50 yd line to the top row of seats in a stadium in a powerade commercial his rookie year.

Manning has improved his arm strength since he joined the league, which is fairly unusual, from what I've read.

Carr certainly belongs on the short list - no one said anything about effectiveness or accuracy. He can definitely put some mustard on the ball, though.

Vick, Favre, and Boller are also on the short list, to be sure. I recall reading a piece about Cutler having good arm strength, though I never watched him in college, so I can't say.

Cutler does have a gun but not like Favre, Vick, etc...

1. Farve - Everybody else is a distant 2nd.
2. Vick - You never know where it's going, but it's going to get there in a hurry.
3. Leftwich - Takes longer for him to wind up than it does for the ball to arrive at its destination.
4. McNabb - Next time you watch him throw a deep pass, notice the velocity on it.
5. Bledsoe - Couldn't hit water if he fell out of a boat but he's got a gun.

Others that would give Bledsoe a run for 5th:
David Carr
Tom Brady
Daunte Culpepper
Rex Grossman

Peyton Manning wouldn't make the top 10 on this list. He's got a great arm if you combine his accuracy with strength. But his arm strength alone doesn't stand out to me.

Aaron Brooks has an absolute cannon, especially when he throws the ball forward. Now, what team catches the ball after it is thrown is anyone's guess, but it will definitely happen either very quickly, or a considerable distance down the field.

By this time next year, I think the answer to the question posed in this thread will likely be JaMarcus Russel, although he probably won't be starting for anyone.

Umm . . . do we all have short memories or what?

I seem to recall a 70+ yard perfect spiral hail mary thrown by Daunte Culpepper at the end of the half in the Dolphins game. Kubiak talked about it on his radio show. They asked how far he could throw it in his day, and he said he could maybe get it 50 yards with a strong wind behind his back. I wanted to call him up and ask him how far Elway could throw it.

I think it depends on your thinking when it comes to strong arm...

When I hear strong arm Im thinking about being able to Zing a pass into tight spaces or making a throw to the right side line from the left hash....

I don't neccessarily equate throwing the ball far with having a strong arm...
