Matt Barkley's isn't. And that's exactly my point.
There's elite arm strength - the Stafford/Kaepernick/Cutler/Rodgers group.
There's good arm strength - all those people you claimed you could compare Barkely to - Eli, Brady, Luck, Romo
Then there are guys that have average arm strength that they have to work around - Peyton is the cream of that crop, then there's guys like Schaub and Rivers.
None of those guys list 'arm strength' as among their assets. They simply don't have it listed as a liability.
That's Matt Barkley's absolute best case scenario. And seeing as how he's had surgery on his throwing shoulder, yeah, it's fair for me to say "at best" because none of us have seen him throw a football since that damage was done.
You're just completely wrong here.
Drew Brees had surgery and probably has had a better arm since. Every case is unique so I can understand the worry. We'll see in the next few days.
