Re: Is Ben's throw in Super Bowl 43 the best throw in NFL history?

All right. The Catch was #2 best game ever. Montana's throw on the run while fading back was pretty fucking good. But it was during a Conference Championship game. Wasn't the SB :D The ONLY way to top Ben/Holmes would be for it to be 4th down and need a TD to win (it was 3rd down, in easy game-tyin...

Tomlin goes back to attrition football and Ben may not make much difference. Also, I expect the defense will not be as good without as many turnovers this year.
