I was watching this as well! Ben was leading there for a while. I turned it off before it was over.

I don't remember what year it was, but I saw Brett Favre throw the ball over 80 yards several times in one of those things.

Totally correct. Saw him play in high school, he had a cannon for an arm. Always said he had a million dollar arm and a ten cent brain. Another guy who comes to mind who could chuck the ball in the 80 yard range was Jim Plunkett.

I met Plunkett on a plane ride to Vegas Super Bowl weekend. He had already
been retired at that point. Also, Jerry Lewis was on the same plane and me and
my bro spoke to Jerry and Jim asked if that was Lewis and what did we talk
about. Lewis told us, "I got socks older than you." Plunkett had a nice deep
ball.

Must have been an awesome flight with those two guys. If they ever rerun them check out the NFL"s strongman competions when Webster and Kolb particapated.

Bradshaw could throw one 80 yards without taking a forward step..........
