Instead of talking about mental aspects of his game (stupid/brave decisions, trying to do too much) this arm strenght BS is really becoming one off the stupidest conversations on the internet.

There are actual reports of people (nfl people, scouts,..) who watch him practice, warm up and they never saw lack of arm strenght.
Apparently you didn't do well enough to read the article. This speculation in the article is coming from the fitness coach for Serena Williams.

Most writers/reports don't debate his arm strength since you can't quantify that, but what they do know is the deep ball is nowhere to be found this year. I haven't heard Brees being compared to any other QB in any of these conversations, but they do compare him to himself in previous years, years in which he was the best deep ball passer.

Let's not debate whether or not his arm strength is gone for whatever reason. Instead let's all agree that the deep ball has been an utter failure this year, because that is a fact.

I have read several articles over the past few months dealing with the decreasing number of deep pass completions in the game. The numbers are down all across the league. You can pick out most any QB individual and you will see the same sort of drop-off in deep ball frequency and efficiency. That's the problem with looking at one single set of numbers in a vacuum. You can easily arrive at the wrong conclusion as to the reason for said numbers.

Either his arm strength is in decline or we have the fastest WR in the world.To many underthown deep balls and to many passes behind the recievers. I could care less what the article says, I've got eyes to see.
