    The Greatest Pass ever...

    NFL Films ranks Terry Bradshaw's game-winning 64-yard TD bomb to Lynn Swann in Super Bowl X as the "Greatest Throw of All Time." I couldn't agree more.

    It had all the elements of the toughest throws: It came on the biggest stage under a relentless pass rush; it was a deep pass (soaring more than 60 yards in the air) placed perfectly over the shoulder of a well-covered receiver. And it made the Steelers champions.

    After the NFL Films segment, I've added footage of the play from the original game broadcast of the game.

    Bradshaw was one tough SoB to step up into that throw in that era. Skirts my ass.

    I think it's probably because I didn't see that one live, but I think this is the best throw of all time. Where did they have it on the NFL films list?

    Me neither. Terry and the offense saved our bacon in a few Super Bowls.

    Bradshaw’s 73 yard TD strike to John Stallworth in Super Bowl XIV was another really good one.
    Obviously the standard is the standard.

    Hit in full stride. I like it better than the one to Swann.

    Swannys bounce to self while falling added drama to the catch.

    In view of the fact that Mike Tomlin has matched Cowhers record I give him the designation:

    That's the one I thought of when I read the initial thread subject.
