Re: Arm Strength or Accuracy?

I don't really have much of a preference, but I have had a lot of success using lower rated quarterbacks with below average arm strength. For the past three Maddens, I've been able to win the league MVP with Trent Edwards and make him into a perennial Pro Bowler (with only a high 70's OVR). Even on the last gen system, I did fine with Danny Wuerffel for a few seasons in Madden 05. So I guess accuracy is more important when you're playing the games yourself.

Although like someone else pointed out, throw power can never increase, while accuracy can. So when I draft a young QB, THP is more important. Also, when simming games, it seems the quarterbacks with the higher THP will average more yards per completion.

It has to be a combination, but if you are forcing me to choose between Cam Newton (cannon arm, but terrible accuracy) and Chad Pennington (good accuracy, but noodle arm), I would have to choose accuracy over power.

Accuracy for me.
I don't go long much.
I like to throw short passes until whoever i'm playing starts to call plays that protect the short passes then I go long.

I love Ryan Mallet, his awareness doesn't matter for player and he is the only QB in the game with THP of 98 (Stafford is 97 to the previous poster). If you are controlling him he is honestly almost overpowered because he only balanced by his lack of awareness (considering he is a rookie).
