    Strong arm QB's.
    Kerry Collins is considered a strong arm QB, Aaron Brooks as well. He needs more then that.

    Brad Johnson would have no problem throwing the ball
    downfield to an open Randy Moss.
    When will people learn that accuracy is more important than arm strength?

    A league source tells us that our proposal regarding a change in the rules regarding the trading deadline has quickly gained some footing.
    Whether it results in an adjustment to the current mid-October expiration date remains to be seen.

    The problem, as we explained on Thursday, is that no one has championed the cause at the various meetings at which such matters are discussed.
    Usually, rules changes occur because someone has pushed aggressively for the move, often over a course of years.

    And, typically, the team advocating modification is hoping in some way to better its own position.

    For example, the Chiefs, who have narrowly missed the playoffs on several occasions this decade, have become proponents of expanding the playoff field.
    To date, the move has not passed.
    (If it ever does, it likely would be in conjunction with a new round of broadcast rights contracts, since the NFL would be able to leverage the extra postseason games into even more money from the networks -- unless, of course, the league decides to air the additional playoff games on NFLN.)

    Likewise, the Colts are thought to be responsible for driving the renewed emphasis on the rules regarding illegal contact with receivers after what the Colts regarded as a repeated mugging of their pass-catchers by the Pats in an AFC playoff game.

    As to the postponement of the trading deadline, there's no specific team that would gain an actual or perceived advantage, so as a practical matter there's no specific team that would be willing to expend any political capital by pushing the thing.
    Instead, this specific rule falls into the "for the good of the game" category, and it's something that the owners need to conclude makes sense absent someone with an agenda trying to persuade them to do so.
