This is what happens when you allow gay marriage to become legal. Next thing you know, tight ends will be marrying wide receivers after yards and yards of penetration.

So rather than keeping your eyes on everyone during a trick play, you're essentially doing a hail mary from the 10 yard line?  Dumb.

When my brother got married recently neither he nor the bride threw anything. Neither of them plays football. From this I conclude football coaches have stolen a proud silly American tradition for their own private use.

Meh, I've seen this play run back in the 70's, usually to rub it in during a blowout. This is nothing new.

I guess if you practiced the throw enough you'd generally know where it was going to land. However in the time it takes to learn that all but pointless skill, I'd rather have the sixteen year-old practicing some fundamentals that would affect the other 99% of the game.

It's all about attracting attention to help coach get his next job.

These kids will probably join a fraternity, so that seems inevitable.

It worked, so it's hard to argue with results. But it's a stupid way to run a trick play. A random toss is going to work less than half he time.

Not even that, an over-the-back, BLIND Hail Mary. At least in the standard Hail Mary, the QB is looking downfield to the location that the ball is headed. This over the shoulder shiat could just as easily end up in the hands of the center as it could the intended receiver.

Both of the videos have something in common with the way the play unfolds: the receiver gets needlessly hammered. Terrible play. The quarterback can't see the target, the receiver has to go up for a 50/50 (at best, probably less since thrown blind) ball and get clobbered on the way back down. If you're gonna run a high-risk, high-reward trick play, run a flea flicker. Or better yet, considering the limited film we have, a draw or Statue of Liberty...

Safer for everyone involved, especially since you only really need 2 yards.

it's about the match up. you get a high-jumping basketball player who isn't a star football player and you match him up with a short cornerback or strong safety and tell him to go get the ball. nfl has been doing this for years minus the stupid pass.

This would never work in the NFL.

/now Tebow will throw two of them with great success
//and every idiot coordinator will copy the play
///like the stupid-ass wildcat phenomenon a few years ago

it will never work because the speed of the players....too much hang time with the ball in the air for a jump ball. and not enough job security for a coach if they don't get points inside the 10 yard line and loses a game.

i can hear the conversation with an owner or gm...."why am i even paying for a place kicker?"
