I also thought the first one to Torrey dropped right in there.
The bomb at the end though...I mean...I'm still speechless.
Just the events that transpired, the facts of the situation. No timeouts. The way Flacco had to wiggle through and step up...the OL giving him the time to even do that...the distance the ball traveled...
I heard a radio caller name it the "F Bomb". I think that is a fitting name.
It was thrown by Flacco. It made Denver fans yell "F*ck!", and it made me yell "F*ck YEAH!!"
The arc formula mentioned in an earlier post assumes a circular arc. A thrown ball will have a more elongated trajectory on the way up, but it will come down more steeply since it loses lateral velocity due to air resistance. It still may be good enough for an approximate answer, but to do it right you'll probably need some physics and calculus. Yuck!
Height's a little tough to tell.
The ball is hidden behind the Team/score banner for awhile as the camera follows it.
First get a glimpse here under the "4th";
Above the bronco nose
I should make a few gif's :)
I love that he dropped it in there like a punt, which is perfect for Jones, who is a not-the-most-assured receiver, but quite good as a punt/kick returner. Smith or Boldin might've been able to make a contested catch, although Boldin wouldn't have gotten as far downfield (not to mention open), and Smith would've been the obvious choice and even Moore would've probably figured out to play over the top on a deep route from Smith. It was a perfect play. Moore isn't out of position because he's a total dumbass. He's watching Smith down the left sideline, Boldin and Pitta toward the middle, and just got juked by a guy who had good speed but hadn't caught a pass all day.
