Actually it was a 94 MPH fastball...when he was in high school....and about 60 lbs lighter.

Still has a baseball wind up. If he decides to throw from the pocket while it's collapsing Johnson may get a paw in there, which he is very good at btw, and knock the ball down before it reaches his release point.

You had better hope Kaep can have a big day.  Planning on running the ball effectively by the 49ers won't go well.  We have shut down all RB's and have allowed a total of 2 rushing TD's in 8 games.

I haven't heard anyone put Kapernick in the comically big arm talk....

Stafford. Newton. Flacco has a big arm but it isn't like Stafford or Cam either.




Kap might have the biggest arm in the NFL. Randy Moss spoke about it during Super Bowl week.




Report on the team referring to his arm strength




What does Sports Science say on the subject?




Anquan Boldin said yesterday that Colin has the biggest arm of any QB he's ever played with...and that includes Flacco. At the combine Colin threw harder than Cam did. Looking for the link on that one.


Throwing hard alone doesn't make you a great QB. You need to learn touch. There is no question about that...but don't tell me Kap doesn't have a huge arm. He might have the biggest arm in the NFL right now.



Edit: Found it.




A TD pass in New England last year was actually clocked at 60.4 MPH.


Its at the 21 second mark in this vid (which BTW is annoying as hel because I created that highlight reel before the NFL pulled it down and now this guy has reposted it to got awful music and poor video quality)

"Every game can be lost in the NFL, and turnovers are how you lose, but barring that, the 49ers rush for 200+ and win easy"
