Lance Moore was making some comparisons with his new quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, with his old quarterback, Drew Brees, and he believes that Big Ben has a stronger arm than Brees. Here is what he told ESPN:
“I would say that Ben has a little bit stronger of an arm, maybe a lot stronger arm,” Moore said. “Just from the last couple of days with him here, that’s something that kind of jumps out at me. If you are kind of lazy with your eyes the ball will zoom right past you. That’s something that I will have to adjust to. I feel like the quarterback should never really have to adjust to the receiver.”
Because of that statement, the people down in New Orleans are giving Moore the business. He wasn’t trying to disrespect Drew with his comments, but the fans took at that way and Moore had to respond on his twitter:
Everybody down south is mad now? Never said I disliked Drew or am not thankful for my time w him. Wouldn't be where I am w/o him. Chill out

Ben might have a stronger arm than Drew, but that doesn’t mean he is a better or worse quarterback. That just means he throws it harder. A few quarterbacks out there might have a stronger arm, but that means nothing.
