    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.

    It seems to me when I watch Jaws go over game film and he breaks down everything on a play, he includes the speed/velocity of the throw. We know it went 54 yard horizontal distance. If we knew the speed/velocity, we could calculate the arc.

    I assumed the ball traveled 54 yards forward and 24 yards to the right (approximately the distance from the hashmark to the sideline). I used the Pythagorean theorem (a^2 + b^2 = c^2) to give a real distance of 59 yards.

    I also thought the first one to Torrey dropped right in there.

    Correct. You would need both the degree of the launch and the radius of the full circle (ie the peak height of the ball). The angle would be easy to figure out with a replay and a protractor. I don't think there's anyway to measure the peak height, though.

    More impressive is that the bail didn't hang... it still had a ton of velocity. Is Sports Science on this?

    And, I think Moore was in position for a standard deep throw. It was the arc that put it over his head. Moore misplayed the arc, not the distance.
    Okay. I looked at the replay, he threw the ball from his own 25 and Jacoby caught it at the Denver 20. 65 yards in the air. Wow. And that's only after he put a lot air in that throw.
