I could see Richard Sherman being a great sportswriter when he retires.

haha, I like him, but I fear he may be a bit bias there with a couple of his picks.  Still a fun read.  Love to see stuff from players, even though I don't take it as gospel, their outlook is different (not better, not worse, imo, different) from typical sports journalists and I really like that

Note, however, what QB is not on that list - despite Sherman having played them in-division.  Wonder why? ;)

Sherman is totally wrong about one point: 

 

 

The thing that sets him apart is that he’ll change it to a run play if you don’t have enough players in the box, and they’ll get five or six yards because you’re not ready for it. Nobody else has both the authority to do that within their offense and the understanding to know when it’s appropriate.

 

That's a load, because the majority of quarterbacks do that and have the authority to audible to run plays. It's a pretty standard part of the job.

Best arm: Andrew Luck...?

 

IIRC, arm strength was the one semi-knock on Luck coming out of college.

No idea, because Luck's accuracy is actually somewhat erratic, and he's not on the Cam/Cutler/Kaepernick tier in arm strength either.

So Andrew Luck has the best arm in the entire NFL right now? Yeah, not remotely true.

Best arm, probably.

Best arm is not strongest arm.

Agreed being able to make ALL the throws and with touch so the WRs can make a play after the catch is invaluable.

Cam still needs work on fade throws and he misses open seam passes way too often..his Arm strength is A++ Cam offers a lot of other intangibles that despite similar combine 40 times, Luck is incapable of duplicating.

I think his point was Manning does it significantly better.....and has more overall power in his offense than most
