I believe the farthest throw in an NFL game was John Elway (in the air) 75-80 yards
Because distance thrown is not an official statistic kept by the NFL, the farthest throw in NFL history is anyone's guess. No quarterback is thought to be able to throw for more than 60 or 65 yards, however.
I heard that Ray Guy, the hall of fame NFL punter could throw a football from goal line to goal line (100 yards).

Throw it the farthest.
Golfball by far.
Such a contest to determine who can throw the farthest does not actually exist, nor is it part of the scouting combine. However, the smart money would likely be on JaMarcus Russell of the Raiders, who can purportedly throw the ball 80 yards with accuracy.Other candidates include Jay Cutler, Byron Leftwich, Michael Vick, Joe Flacco,and Peyton Manning.Maybe even Brett Farve.
