Its not that he has a "Rag" arm...its that he cant throw a deep pass. He never has been able to to that since hes been in KC. Hes just not very accurate throwing deep down the sidelines. He always overthrows the WR . hes so bad at it, Saunders doesnt even call the play much anymore.....At least Saunders knows what his QB can and cant do.

Some of the most successful QB's ever have not had great deep ball arms. People like Ryan Leaf and Kerry Collins and Jeff George have though.

I just did some calculations. If Trent would have been throwing a plantain instead of a football it would have traveled at 44 mph. Now that is arm strength!

I don't believe in purposefully tanking games because it develops a losing attitude that sticks with a team year after year after year. You always have to be getting better as an organization. Nothing succeeds like success.

I don't think Trent has a "rag arm" but as soon as that projection popped up on the screen, I called bullshit. Monday Night Favre threw and absolute laser during the game, and they said it was the equivalent of a 98 mph fastball...comparitively, Favre's pass looked MUCH faster.

So either I'm losing my eyesight, or ESPN's stat guys ****ed up.

Since this pass went 63 feet, that means for it to have been going 91mph the ball would have needed to arrive at the receiver in about half a second. It was a short pass but that sounds a little too quick. But, it's a comparable distance to a baseball pitch, which I think is about 58 feet?

Maybe they are compensating for the force required to be exerted on the thrown object. Certainly the same force in Newtons would throw a baseball and a football at different speeds due to the different natures of the two objects.

I don't mean the team needs to go out there and tank games. I mean as a fan what would you prefer for the future of the team. I don't want the team to purposely tank games. But I understand how in the long run as a fan going 6-10 could be more beneficial than going 8-8.

IM with ya brother........It would be different if we were a franchise like the Pats who have been to the big dance oh say 5 times or so in the past 20 years. The sad fact is, we havent sniffed the big dance in 30+ years. It hasnt helped us much to be mediorce every year so why not try something different?? IM willing to suffer through some down seasons like 3 or 4 wins as long as we get some sure fire bluechippers. In 1988 and 1989 we got Neil Smith and Derrick Thomas, I would kill for some impact players like that again on offense or defense.

NFW is a football thrown equivalent to a 91 mph fastball. They aren't factoring in the inertia. Then, again, I will never challenge Trent Green to a game of dodgeball.

Sometimes you need a top 5 player. If you know what you're doing in the draft you should never ever blow a top 5 pick. Carl blew that Sims pick but that was the player DV and Robinson wanted so it's just as much their faults. Hopefully whoever the next coach is has a better eye for talent.

This year for example, there's a DE Mario Williams, he's Julius Peppers esq. Now that's a player a team like ours could really use but we'll never come close to touching him.

It's the same attitude that children and gamers have.

Children need to win. Sometimes they cheat each to do so.

"I saw you move your piece too many spaces!"
"Did not!"
"Did too!"
"DID NOT!!!"
"DID TOO!!!

Gamers want to win as well. They go to such lengths as to use cheat codes to get past difficult parts of a game.

It's all about instant gratification. They know nothing about enjoying the ride, even when the road has pot holes in it. They learn nothing from the shortcuts they take.

When he gets a chance to step into it, and let it go, his arm is plenty strong enough.

I agree....like i mentioned in an earlier post, hes just NOT accurate throwing the deep out down the sidelines at all. He does however throw really good down the middle of the field which is where about 95% of his longer throws usually go.

Its not that he has a "Rag" arm...its that he cant throw a deep pass. He never has been able to to that since hes been in KC. Hes just not very accurate throwing deep down the sidelines. He always overthrows the WR . hes so bad at it, Saunders doesnt even call the play much anymore.....At least Saunders knows what his QB can and cant do.

I agree with this except that he doesn't always overthrow his receivers. He sometimes underthrows them significantly. The deep pass just isn't his strong suit

I didn't think so. Fans hoping for losses after the season is lost is different from the team "tanking games". If I ever thought that the team was intentionaly throwing games no matter the record or the benifit of the draft, I would be done with them for sure.

I wonder if Trent would have better numbers along the sidelines if we had better WR's. Trent's QB rating when throwing to each sideline is below 70. He's got a 109.5 rating down the middle of the field though.

He's actually 8-12 with a 109.7 rating on passes thrown 20-30 yards. Pretty good actually. If you want your "I never would've guessed" stat of the week, Trent Green is 10-23 passing beyond 20 yards. Peyton Manning is 10-34 passing beyond 20 yards. Although Manning has 6 TD/3 INT in that range. Trent's just got 0 TD/1 INT. Kinda shows how we can't throw downfield as much though...

Being able to throw down field is dependant on pass blocking and the amount of time the QB has to set up and throw. That does make it more interesting in regards to Mannings numbers throwing the ball down field. From what I've seen the Colts O line has been playing better than ours so one would think that Manning would have better numbers over 20 yards then Green.

the formula for converting speeds thrown would have to include: actual football throw speed, the weight of the football(15 oz), the distance thrown. compared to all of the above with a baseball. my wife has a bachelors in math, and she found that it takes less than half a second to throw a 5 oz baseball 60ft 6in @ 91 mph.
so, we figured that the statistitians clocked green's pass w/ radar and calculated it that way. we couldnt break down the equation as far as to figure the actual pass speed w/ the 15oz football, but we guesstimaed his throw time to be about 1.37 sec from green's hand to kennisons chest.

Just FTR, the weight of the baseball doesn't have anything to do with how long it takes for the baseball to go 60ft 6in @ 91mph. You may already realize this, but I can't tell whether or not that's the case.

In addition to the mass, you'd have to consider that the drag on the football will be much larger than the drag on a baseball.

The other thing about this equivalent stuff is that it ignores mechanics. I don't thing Green could just step up and throw a 91 mph fastball because he hasn't learned the mechanics of pitching.

That was pretty nifty. I'm interested as to HOW they use physics to find the MLB equivalent.

Well, no, but it has something to do with the force required to accelerate it to 91 mph

Agreed, but from the sounds of some of these posts, "force required" isn't being recognized as the key to coming up with an NFL equivalent.

I wonder if Trent would have better numbers along the sidelines if we had better WR's. Trent's QB rating when throwing to each sideline is below 70. He's got a 109.5 rating down the middle of the field though.

He's actually 8-12 with a 109.7 rating on passes thrown 20-30 yards. Pretty good actually. If you want your "I never would've guessed" stat of the week, Trent Green is 10-23 passing beyond 20 yards. Peyton Manning is 10-34 passing beyond 20 yards. Although Manning has 6 TD/3 INT in that range. Trent's just got 0 TD/1 INT. Kinda shows how we can't throw downfield as much though...
his #'s would be incredible if he had the combo warner had. atleast give us 1 #1 threat. we have a #2 wr playing #1.
