Matt Barkley challenges Philly reporter to play catch after having his strength ripped


Jimmy Kempski of Phily.com has been critical of the arm strength of Eagles quarterback Matt Barkley fired back on Reddit.

Barkley personally responded on a Reddit thread titled, “Barkley’s arm strength a concern” to say that his arm strength is no concern at all. Responding to Jimmy Kempski of Philly.com, who wrote that Barkley may “struggle to stay in the league” if he can’t improve the velocity on his throws, Barkley wrote on Reddit that it simply isn’t true.

“Easy there Jimmy, you don’t know a thing about that route, the defensive coverage, technique of the wide receiver, the route he was actually running, let alone my maximum velocity arm strength,” Barkley wrote. “We can play catch sometime if you want to figure out for yourself how hard I can throw it, just lemme know.”

It sounds like Kempski is up for the challenge.
