Goodman was always a little freakish when it came to size and strength. One of the main reasons he was so highly rated as a recruit.
What I said was true. Long arms kills bench and pull-ups. No one can argue with that.
NAF Atsugi, Japan.
Yes especially when we are using 14 as the bar, and it wasn't a negative for those guys. Most QBs don't lift the ones that do are average QBs. The only QB I remember that being strong might have been a knock on was Brady Quinn
Tater envy? Try not making excuses.
I think Jay Cutler did, but he's just a big ole country boy. He's the only one. Maybe Tim Tebow, and Cam Newton?
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
Devin Taylor is a big ol country boy too.
Using a QB is silly to begin with, or a kicker. Neither position goes Mano y Mano nearly every play, so that's why they rarely test a measure of strength. Being strong isnt a knock on any position which is what I disagreed with.

Having long arm do affect the your bench press; What many may not know is that Devin Taylor squats more than 400lbs that when you can use your body and leg to lift. Depending only on your arms and upper body strenght is not legitimate to the amount of weight you can over power. Devin also had a vertical leap of 35" Top Performer; Broad Jump 10'8" Top Performer; and ran a 4.72 in the 40yd dash. This is from a Guy 6'7, arms 36" and a wing span of 87".
Until any one of the nay sayers can prove that they can do better, they need to shut the "front door"

The length of your arms affects the amount of weight you are able to bench
press. Researchers Dr. David Beller and associates at the University of
Louisiana at Lafeyett studied the affect of arm span on a bench press after a pre-fatigue
exercise. Female subjects held a barbell for 30 seconds with their arms
bent at a 90-degree angle. They were then asked to perform one
repetition of their maximum weight on the bench press. Their results
showed a direct hindrance of bench press performance in females with
When you have short arms, you do not have to push the barbell across a long
distance so you can lift a heavier amount of weight than someone with
longer arms. The tops of your arms will be parallel to the floor in the
start position of the bench press. This position uses more of your
tricep, the back of your upper arm to move the weight of the barbell.
If you have long arms, you will push the weight of the barbell across a
greater distance. Your elbows will drop below your body at the start of
the bench press. This position moves your upper arm lower than a
parallel position so the muscles of your triceps, shoulders and back are
not used as efficiently to move the barbell.
The naysayers aren't lining up against him. The person lining up against him will also have long arms and also went through the drill. He wasn't good in the drill. He was in others. Nothing more. Nothing less. I wish you guys would quit with the long arm arguments. He won't be facing TRex armed tackles every week.
