What older QBs? Did Brett Favre look like he had a weaker arm?

Lets just look at QB mileage.
NFL Career Passing Yards Leaders - Pro-Football-Reference.com

Yards Thrown
Brett Favre 71,838
Dan Marino+ 61,361
Peyton Manning (36) 60,630
John Elway+ 51,475
Warren Moon+ 49,325
Fran Tarkenton+ 47,003
Drew Brees (33) 46,940
Vinny Testaverde 46,233
Tom Brady (35) 45,504

I do not recall thinking any of the QBs above Drew showed signs of a weakening arm; the rest of their bodies wore out before their arm. After watching Peyton Manning the first three games of this season I KNOW he has lost zero arm strength. Brady and manning are both older and same or more yardage... Anyone think they have lost their zip?

Let Big Pappi sack a one pitcher and then see how many strikes he throws after that.
