At 3:20, perfect 22-yard bullet on the comeback from the far hash to the sideline... WOW.


The play that starts at about a minute is a play that Alex Smith would never make...oh hell...they all are!

But-but that's not possible!!! Mahomes and Webb played in air raid systems...there's no way they lead the way in velocity over those other NFL prospects!!! Too bad they played in those air raid systems!!! Now they'll never be able to put those big arms to use!!! Because of the air raid!!!

60 MPH...very impressive...how does it compare to other QB's already in the league?

So you're saying Patrick Mahomes II will be starting 2018 got it.

The MPH has only been used for the last 10 years or so and some of the top prospects in earlier years haven't thrown. But no one has been clocked over 60 MPH since they started recording at combine.

Generally when a guy gets cut from the team it's time to move on and adopt another player.

60 MPH...very impressive...how does it compare to other QB's already in the league?

Found this:

According to a May 2014 article from popular sports blog ďFor The Win,Ē former Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas set a velocity record when he threw a 60 mph pass at the NFL combine. It was the highest recorded speed in the seven years since the league began tracking the velocity of its QB hopefuls.

Thomas became the first player to crack the 60 mph barrier and established a new record by edging out the previous mark of 59 mph set by Colin Kaepernick in 2011.

Although you didnít ask this in your question, I decided to see how success between the speed of a QBís pass correlated to success on the field. And, as a point of reference decided to include the same ďstudyĒ - if you will - on the effectiveness of a MLB pitcher in regards to the speed of their pitches.

As expected, the speed at which at QB throws has very little to do with his overall success. Whereas in baseball, it weighs much heavier.

In a strict comparison of the two, a baseball travels much faster than a football. Obviously. Which is one reason speed is not nearly the commodity in football that it is in baseball. A sport where itís coveted. Of course, the football is an oblong object nearly a foot in length. Meanwhile, a baseball fits comfortably in the palm of oneís hand. A baseball is ďbuilt for speed.Ē A football is not.

Donít misunderstand what Iím saying. Iím not saying ďspeedĒ isnít an important quality for a QB to possess. It is important. However, itís a small portion of a greater whole in terms of what it takes, physically, to be a successful QB.

Jeff George, a rocket armed QB from Illinois took the college football world by storm with his dazzling passes and big play ability. There wasnít a throw George couldnít make and a deep ball he couldnít hit. And while he spent nearly 15 years in the league he never broached the considerable expectations placed upon him coming out of college. Because while he maintained one of the strongest arms the league has ever seen, the fact he could throw hard mattered little as he floundered from one team to the next.

I think one reason for this is these guys with strong arms are so used to getting by on that arm as their coming up through the ranks they become more reliant on their rocket launchers and less susceptible to coaching and teaching. They foster a belief that arm will bail them out of any and all situations. Itís a false sense of security.
