I missed it. Son of a b***#
 

 

It was almost one of those "I know I just saw that happen, but I still don't believe that actually happened" type throw.

Because yeah, this needs its own thread.

 

That was a AAAA rip; Arm, Accuracy, Anticipation, Arrogance

 

I didn't have sound but apparently Romo said that only about 5 guys in the history of the NFL could make that throw.

Who are they?

 

John Elway

Aaron Rodgers

Dan Marino

Steve Young

maybe Michael Vick?

 

 

 

Obviously Tua.  The only difference is Hill would have no one around him for 10 yards and the ball wouldnt get there until it went over the moon and back.

 

Seriously I would say Favre.

I've seen Mahomes make some sick throws but I've never seen him making one like that.

Mahomes is more like Rodgers, incredible arm talent. Allen is more like Elway, incredible arm power.

It was an incredible throw considering Allen is playing with an injury to his throwing arm. That is a throw 1 out of 1 people can make under those circumstances and that man is Josh Allen.

 

That’s a throw that will make it on his end of career highlight reel

I don’t think Mahomes has that one in the bag. He’s an unreal player, but that kind of power, I haven’t seen it to that level from him.

There was a promo thing that Tyrod and Michael Vick did some years ago.

 

In it, Tyrod was telling the story of the two of them making throws on a field together and Vick being amazed at the throws Tyrod was making, and Vick was saying "I can't make throws like that."

 

So Vick has basically stated Tyrod has a better arm.

 

I'd add Brett Favre to the original list.

I think Favre had as strong an arm as josh but not as accurate. That was a total dime. 

Favre's problem in his later years was erratic decision making, he could throw some absolute ropes in his prime.  He would have no problem making that throw

Nice throw especially given the circumstances but this thread is over rating it. 

One of the best throws of his career easily…pretty close to if gabe Davis had come down with that final throw against the jets

Remember people saying that the BIlls should have held last year (13 seconds)?

 

Should the Lions have taken a 15 yard penalty and head hunted Diggs? Or held themselves coming off the line?

I’m still curious how that would work in a game…you’re not allowed to hold to manipulate the clock

Josh said Dorsey and he saw the play’s  D alignment on tape and put a play in for this specific Lions db case. They didn’t  see the layout until then and used it. I think it had to do with 2 db’s playing out route too heavy. Josh used 10 on his lame arm for a couple passes.
