    throws from his own 2 yard line to the opposing 30 yard line.

    that is legit 66-68 yard throw into the run. not a hailmary. the average punt is what? 50 yards? lmao that is ridiculous..

    Has there been a longer recorded completion on film? you can disagree with the title all you want with your opinion. i would like to see you post video proof tho

    Probably. But if this guy had played football instead of baseball, there would be no competition.

    How young are a lot of you?

    During a quarterback challenge one year, when Elway was about 36 or so, he threw the football over 80 yards. Strongest arm I've ever seen. I like Vick, but he's not even in the discussion with Elway.

    Luck's got a cannon on him. Rodgers as well.

    I love how Vick flicked his wrist and the ball became a missile. It was beautiful to watch.

    Did Elway get to load up?

    Was it a completion during a NFL game?

    Did Elway have a defense rushing him?

    Did Elway have to throw into a run?

    Do you read english?

    just LOL

    Damn, what a throw! Vick looked so effortless, Cutler had to put his whole body into that bomb.

    Why are we even debating the arm strength of a quarterback if it has to be during a game? Save the time for debate and just find the stat for longest throw from scrimmage, dingbat.

    Vick's point of release in that video was about the 4-yard line. It traveled and if not caught it would have landed at about the 34 yard line. That is about a 62 yard throw. You gave Vick way too much credit on that throw, it was not 68 yards. Check out the gif below. Elway not only "had a defense rushing him" and yes, it was "during a NFL game" and no he didn't "get to load up" like Vick did in that video. Elway eludes a defender, while staying in the pocket and fires the ball stationary without a wind up for about a 56 yard throw. Vick got a full on wind-up and fired it a whopping 6 yards further.

    Pretty sure Vince Young's arm was legit stronger than Vick's.

    post video proof of such a throw in a game. it has to be done in an NFL game. he's had an entire career of throws and the only video proof falls 7 yards shorter than Vick's.


    point.

    match.

    No chance.

    And I'm surprised no one has brought up Flacco or Ryan "The Crackhead" Mallet.

    lol. No. Your bias is showing. Vick did not have him beat by a couple of yards.

    Vick Point of Release: own 4-yard line, would've landed at opp. 34 yard line. 62 yard throw.
    Cutler Point of Release: own 36-yard line, would've landed 2-yards into opp. End zone. 66 yard throw at minimum.
