What? no Jay Cutler? I thought his arm was stronger than Elway?

And no Jeff George, man come on.

I dropped the NFL package and the NFL network when Shanny was fired. I don't miss that bunch one bit.

Elway got an honorable mention. They said he was great, but not in the gunslinger category.

Farve better be thanking his lucky stars that Denver lost to Jacksonville in '96 because if they hadn't Farve would look like all those other aging washed up QBs clining on as long as they can trying to get that SB ring.

Sonny Jergensen had a slightly better arm than Joe Kapp.

You're joking of course, but that twisted bastard had one astonishingly powerful gun hanging on that shoulder.

In my view, only Randall Cunningham (and maybe now Jamarcus Russell) have ever had such amazingly strong arms.

Jeff George should've been there
As for Elway, naah, he's in a class of his own!

Guy must have some personal dislike for John ... after all, "gunslinger" might be the best single word to describe him.

Either "gunslinger" or "winner."

Jay Schraeder had a very strong arm, stronger than Elway.

Of course you are right. I mean they nicknamed him "The Duke" after John Wayne. Christ you don't get any more gunslinger than that.

I can understand their reasoning. John was held back many a year under Reeves.

well, i dont think gunslinger is necessarily a good thing. john was more of a playmaker, he didnt always wildly throw into coverage like some of those guys...

Gunslinger = Poor all around QB that can't carry a team on his shoulders. This is why John was left off the list I suppose.
