I'm going with Harbaugh. He was a pro QB, so you expect a certain level of finesse when he throws the flag.

Dude looks like he's tossing a used Kleenex into the garbage from the other side of the room. :P

They're just boring.

Does the NFL have a rule about how aggressively you can throw the challenge flag?

Well, one is overhand and the other is underhand, but both of them throw it like a crumpled piece of paper into a wastebasket.

Carroll. The whole motion just screams "goddamn it so much" for some reason.

It's too bad the guy's voice is annoying as fark; it could have been so much better. I still laughed.

/still pissed at Harbaugh for being a douche

I'm glad you liked it.  The singing was done by Mitch Levy, who is the morning host on the morning sports talk radio show in Seattle.  Fortunately, his interviewing skills are vastly superior to his singing skills.

Gotta give the nod to Pete Carroll.

Not that his throwing motion is any worse, but just that he does it at random times.

Someone got paid to conceive and construct that web page.

Carroll tosses it at the feet of an official who is standing 15 yards down field.
Harbaugh is standing right next to an official and, although he has a nice "Kobe" motion, he tosses it away from the official, missing the opportunity to throw it at his feet.

Carroll wins for making the most of his less favorable field position.

"Funnier" throwing motion, not "saddest."

Write-in nominee: Tom Coughlin.

Do the Coughlin!

Gotta love Jason Garrett's throwing motion. Guy looks like he's trying to put a spiral on it.

He's a local radio host, not a professional singer...that being said the overall production of the song itself it's very well done. He's done 2 others...1 making fun of local Hugh Millen hating Russell Wilson at the beginning of the year, and the other very popular one is based off of Carly Rae's Call me Maybe, but making fun of our inept Mariners Ownership called "Sell them Maybe". Most of the jokes in the songs are worn thin if you aren't familiar with Seattle sports, but the songs are increasing in popularity very rapidly.

Harbaugh..he's better at everything. That's why he has owned Pete Carroll for years.

That was surprisingly funny.

Deadspin does a lot of good stuff, but this is dumb.

Timing is everything in comedy.
