6 seconds is plenty of time for a 3 step drop and a throw, Vick wanted to make a play it's been the biggest problem during his Philadelphia tenure.
Not with Vick it isnt, he holds it for too long. I thought they would have ran out of time and be down 17-0 at half, the absolute worst thing happened there. It was a 10 point swing. I kick the fg every time there with Vick in that situation.
"Most of the customers in the sportsbook were not happy with the final call," said John Avello, director of the race and sportsbook at the Wynn in Las Vegas. "The shift was 100 percent. After the (Seahawks) score, all bets were reversed."
Avello's best guess as to how much money was shifted worldwide on the call? $150 million in total bets worldwide.
Jeff Sherman, assistant director of the race and sportsbook at the Las Vegas Hotel, says he estimates that the game shifted $15 million in Nevada alone and also concurs with Avello that the worldwide number, including offshore sportsbooks and in Europe, is worth about 10 times more.
Those who take bets online estimated the shift in money was even greater.
Mike Perry, spokesman for betting site Sportsbook.ag, told ESPN.com his estimate in the money swing on the call at the end of the game is closer to between $200 million and $250 million.

Now can we get that half a billion dollars and give it to the real refs?
What will we do with the other 490 million though? They are only disputing 10 million dollars. It's a shame what they are doing really(owners), in a 9 billion dollar industry they are holding out the refs for 10 million.
I can't imagine what the total value of fines the league is about to hand down will be -- there were a lot of cranky players on social media last night, including Clay Matthews, who apparently posted Goodell's phone number on facebook.
It's unbelievable that a league as well run as the NFL is piddling around with replacement refs, who are clearly not capable of doing the job.
