Monday Night Football Blogging: How Do They Do That?

November 7, 2005 | By | 6 Comments

I am a bad mother. I asked the Dude why I should let him stay up to watch the Colts vs. the Patriots and he pointed me to the cover of Sports Illustrated and said simply, “Because it’s the duel. Peyton Manning vs. Tom Brady. Silly Mommy.”

Makes sense to me.

So, here’s the question. How do they do that??!! Peyton Manning lofted this one pass halfway down the field — 30-some yards — to Dominick Rhodes — and I just want to know how they know someone from their own team will be there to catch it.

I’m serious. How do they do it when the pass is that long?
