The Physics of a Quarterback’s Pass

A lighter piece for Super Bowl Sun­day. Yes, this clip isn’t exact­ly heady. And, yes, it botch­es some facts (archers appar­ent­ly shoot from 70 meters, not 20 yards). But, nonethe­less, it gives you the basic physics of Drew Brees’ pass­ing game. Brees will be play­ing QB for the New Orleans Saints tonight, and, as you’ll see, his accu­ra­cy is remark­able. Hat tip to Mike.
