Not at all forcing you to believe this, but just saying, this post is inaccurate.
Smith's arm strength isn't that of the most elite, but it's been much better since he worked with pitching guru Tom House in recent years. So whatever he "used to have" as you say? He has that back, and it is probably even better, now that he's fine-tuned his mechanics.
His "lack of arm strength" won't get him into any more trouble than any other good quarterback that doesn't have a true cannon.
