    I trolled the site a bit and reviewed their game thread. page after page of 'stop running the ball' in the 4th qutr / ot; of course we remember what happened when they did throw the ball...
    they were severely ticked at the officials.

    I'd say a lot of QBs could probably make that throw. Cutler, Locker, Roethlisberger, Griffin, Luck, Newton, Rodgers, maybe Romo, maybe Bradford, maybe Tebow (just kidding). Several guys have the raw arm strength to attempt it. But that doesn't make it any less impressive.
    It's not just the arm strength. You need the pocket presence to be able to avoid the rush and step up in the pocket. Then, fire a ball 50 some yards down the field with accuracy. Flacco was almost sacked on that play if he didn't slide and step up.

    Moore certainly deserves criticism for not playing deep enough, but some of that is because he thought there was no way someone could throw it that far. Even Jones had briefly slowed down, fortunatley, his momentum was already going down field so he was easily able to speed up to catch it. Moore got caught flat-footed.

    After thinking about it some more the only other QB beside Flacco imo that would have had a chance is Rodgers. He has the arm strength (although I think Flacco's arm is stronger) and accuracy necessary for that throw in those conditions. There are several others that might have the arm strength (Cutler, Stafford, Freeman, Vick, etc.) but I doubt any of the the others are accurate enough. What people forget about that throw was the angle - not just the distance or the weather conditions. The angle was the single biggest factor why Moore misjudged it and it's what made that throw an even higher degree of difficulty.

    All of the QBs on my list could put it there accurately, sometimes. Joe Flacco can put it there accurately, sometimes. He only had to do it once, and he did it. Kudos. I sure as hell couldn't. Same thing for the pocket presence, the awareness, the decision-making... all of these are measures of capability that would be measured by "how often" you get something correct. The raw arm strength though, that's something that some QBs simply do not possess.

    All I know is I got my root canal finish up scheduled that morning so I'll be good to go by game time.

    Looking back, the man threw it darn near off of his tippy toes.

    I mean Peyton and Brady has abused players being out of position for years, but Joe does it and it's a fluke. Hell most big plays happen when one player messes up big time.
    Yeah, that never made any sense. If we didn't deserve to win, who did? The team with Rahim Moore?
