    Keep in mind to that Flacco started moving up in the pocket. That draws the defense forward in case Joe decided to run. Even Jacoby slowed down because no one thought Joe would throw that ball. Flacco's pocket presense also helped set this up.

    Still, it was one of the best throws I've ever seen.

    64 yards.

    Joe's front foot was on the 26 and his back was on the 25. Jones caught it in his "bread basket" exactly on the 20.

    Arch + location (not throwing it out of bounds) + distance = Perfect throw.

    That calculates the "field distance". I'm curios as to the actual distance the ball travelled along the arc, from Joe's hand to Jacoby's hand. We would have to at least know the actual height the ball reached at top of the arc. I think knowing that measurement and the 64 yard measurement would be enough to figure out the actual distance.

    Oh. Gotcha.

    Yeah, I don't think I can do that. I stopped taking math classes about 16 years ago.

    FWIW,
    That would be 54 yds

    Actually,it would probably be easy to do if you had the right technology to measure from the field up to where the ball hit it's peak, but good luck finding that.

    Troy Aikman is constantly criticizing young QBs for not dropping it over the top like Joe did. Aikman should use that tape as an illustration of how to perfectly throw the deep ball.

    I found this on line... length of the arc is = angle/360 x 2 x pi x r

    That moon shot throw by Flacco was amazing! Reminded be of Jeff Blake.
