Did they snap the ball right as the play clock hit zero, on that play?

If so, it would certainly make it that much easier for someone to time their leap.

It's not the timing of the leap so much as a question of leverage.  Gravity will give you only so much.  Upper body strength gives you so much.  But I rewound that a few times and was still like, how the hell did he do that?!?

Yeah, I know what you're saying.

I was just curious if the play clock was going to zero when he timed his jump. I don't record the games, because they always lose when I do.

It's just if you're going to try the sneak, wouldn't it be better to not do the standard snap at 1 second?

IIRC, didn't the Ravens go empty backfield on that sneak?  Talk about BA-like imbecility.  I mean, does anyone think the Ravens were going to let Flacco THROW on 4th and short?  It was an awesome play by Troy, but it was easier to make knowing there was only one thing the Ravens could possibly do out of that formation.
