What is the longest distance a football has been thrown?

In competitive football, the length of the throw is not measured, but rather the length of the play (catch and run). The longest pass is 99 yards in US football and 109 yards in Canada, that being one yard less than the length of the field. There is no official record for Longest Throw, but a distance of 80-90 yards (73-82 m) seems to be considered the longest. NFL quarterbacks such as Steve Bartkowski, Randall Cunningham, and Jamarcus Russell (all tall, powerful throwers) have thrown the ball that far in the air. One NFL site lists an unofficial record for ball distance, which was 83 yeads by Don Meredith of the Dallas Cowboys, part of a 95-yard pass to Bob Hayes on November 13, 1966. (see related question)
