That Charlie Frye one might be the worst throw ever...what could he have possibly been thinking there?

I wish I could find one of T-Jack's jump passes into quintuple coverage.

I went with Kirk Cousins just because he looks awesome the way he tries to jump when he throws.

I'd give it to Romo. Rivers tried throwing towards the open man/field... but the interception was just ridiculous.

Romo completely overthrew his man, when there was a man over the top.

Romo punted the ball ... with his arm ... on 1st and 10 ...

IMO gotta be Rivers, with Romo a close second. To me, it looked like the MSU guy was hit while he threw, and that allowed the Safety to catch up with a floating ball. Rivers' was just a facepalm moment. Romo's was awful as well, but I'm going to pick the horrible decision over the bad decision with a terrible throw.

Rivers overthrew Chambers as well, and there was just as good coverage on chambers as there was on Hurd.

I voted Rivers, though I guess if Ray Lewis was chasing me I wouldn't be thinking clearly either :P

Cousins gift wrapped a victory for the Irish on that one and probably saved Charlie's job.

It has to be Rivers that's one of the funniest things I've ever seen a QB do besides Aaron Brooks' -20 yard lateral.

Not to bash the nominees, but Terrelle Pryor's interception against Toledo last week should definitely be up there on the list.

The least thought out throw I think I have ever seen in my life.

IMO, it goes Cousins, Rivers, Romo.

Jason Campbell is the worst. He threw an INT after being 5 yards pass the line of scrimmage. They should have called pass interference but it was such a dumb play by Campbell the refs had to just give it to them. Rivers was hilarious but anyone would sh*t their pants with Ray Lewis hunting you down.

CC.SD

Probably has to be Rivers, although you gotta forgive him given that he was trying to throw it away, and also threw for 438 yards on the day.

That aaron brooks video is gone from the internets as far as I can tell, although believe me it does not disappoint. Epic play.

Pause the Kirk Cousins video at :28. He looks like he's trying to do the reverse Heisman pose, while throwing the ball mid air. That's just terrible.

Man, I can't remember what game it was.. it was on Saturday, the team was down by around 10 points or so, late in the 4th Quarter and the QB threw pretty much a Chest Pass to his WR which was intercepted. I wanna say it was Cal vs Minnesota but it might've been a different one. Someone help me out here.

Cousins. Why would they throw the ball there?

Speaking of boneheaded plays, this is a little off topic, but don't feel like making a new thread - does anyone have a link to the video where the WR or Corner ducks when the ball is thrown at him?

I tried like 50 different variations of "reciever / corner + duck / dodge / hide + ball / football" etc. :(

Brandon Lloyd is who you are looking for... I believe he was playing for the 49ers at the time.

Can we make Jake Plummer the 2004 winner by default for his left-handed interception throw?

Might as well. Orton was just paying homage to one of the greats. That's lasting appeal.

Love that.

The Orton play wasn't that bad. It was fourth down, the lineman that was about to hit him so he couldn't run or pass with his right arm. That was his only choice. If it weren't 4th down it would be a completely different story.

Tony's is so bad for the simple fact that he admitted that he didnt even know Phillips was there. He thought Hurd was wide open.

you didn't nominate Brady Quinn when he went to throw the ball down field to steve heiden and the ball went backwards out of his hand recovered by Minn which lead to a touchdown.

that was more uncoordinated, not brain-dead stupid.

Jake Plummer's left handed interception was way more stupid than Orton's.

2008- Brett Favre throw vs OAK when he basically threw the ball up in the air and right to DeAngelo Hall and Hall had himself an easy INT. Embarrassing.

Favre also had a brilliant throw vs SEA when he threw it up to where no one could get it but the lone Seahawk defender. Done in the snow but still not smart.

Shame I can't find videos for either play. I am sure the other fanbases though could remember the plays.

As for this vote, Cousins.

He got hit when he was throwing. Causing the ball to be overthrown.

Had to go with Rivers here.

Romo had a man there and had he Phillips not been there he may have even got there, looks like Romo just didn't see Phillips.

Cousins was hit trying to win the game and threw it, that was a good defensive play as much as anything.

Rivers just panicked and threw the ball into a nothing spot with no player near it.

I could sort of see it with Phillips' blue jersey blending in with the blue endzone.

I had this same thought, there was definitely some camo action involved. It's the only explanation anyway.

Clearly, you didn't watch Nick Sheridan last year.
