Man, I love hot takers, especially when they are ignorant. Think Skip Bayless, Jason McIntyre and now, Ryan McCrystal. Who the fuck is Ryan McCrystal?
Some douche who writes for Bleacher Report. Pretty much when I see Bleacher Report next to someone’s name, I automatically put them on ignore for sins against journalism, writing in general, sports and humanity. So this shitdick would certainly fall into that category. However, if he ever had any semblance of credibility, he lost it today.
Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen is going to be drafted in the first round this year. The kid has a cannon for an arm. Of course, he’s lacking in other departments, namely accuracy.
Still, there are rumors that the Cleveland Browns are considering him with the first overall pick. Enter John Dorsey.
I’ve had this discussion, as well. The thinking being, John Dorsey has (almost) always had QBs with rocket arms. Not Alex Smith but everyone else. And Josh Allen has the biggest arm. https://t.co/5djQogej6L
Everyone else being Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers.
Oh, please dispute this, Bleacher Report’s finest NFL analyst.
Almost his entire career has been Favre/Rodgers/Smith. I’d hardly call those rocket arms. Favre and Rodgers can sling it, but they weren’t head and shoulders above all their peers like Allen is https://t.co/wqyNBs9ClP
And now we have a Twitter spat between a respected NFL reporter and a hot taking dipshit!
Tell me more about how Brett Favre didn’t have a great arm
And here is where Rapoport becomes a delusional Packers fan.
Only a delusional Packers fan could think Favre/Rodgers arm strength compares to Allen.
I think Allen is a terrible prospect, but we can’t deny his arm is historically great. Maybe the strongest ever. Can’t just compare that trait to other strong arms. He’s in his own class
Maybe the strongest ever! Based upon my inside knowledge of arms and their strengths (I am also botanist, please, ask me anything about plants).
So, Josh Allen, yes, the kid has a strong arm. Does he break guys fingers when he throws them the ball like Brett Favre used to do? Not that I’ve heard. I’d think that would be one sign of arm strength.
Can he throw the ball 70 yards at an angle that pretty much goes straight up into the sky for a Hail Mary like Rodgers did in Detroit a couple years ago? Maybe. I haven’t seen it. That seems like a good sign of arm strength.
But hell, what do I know? I don’t have a degree in arm strengthitude and botany like those clowns who get to cover the NFL for that bastion of delightful prose, Bleacher Report.
