When I watch Patriots games the first time around, I rarely pay attention to the zip Brady puts on his passes. Watching the replays, I realize just how hard he throws the ball (or perhaps it just seems fast in comparison to watching Philip Rivers for a game =) ) Bledsoe came into the league known as a cannon-armed quarterback, and he did have a great arm. But I really don't see a huge gap between him and Brady. I see Brady make a lot of passes that very few NFL quarterbacks can make. Despite people saying that he is primarily a smart quarterback who makes good decisions, I don't think it's fair to overlook his arm strength as a major factor for his success. For whatever reason he has always had the reputation of not having an elite arm, but I think much of that is attributed to his first year as a starter when he didn't air it out much. Anyone else's thoughts/ comments appreciated.
