The New England Patriots are a little thin at quarterback right now as Jarrett Stidham deals with a leg injury.

Should they call up Marcus Smart?

We know the Boston Celtics guard is an impressive athlete, and he's built like a football player at 6-foot-3, 227 pounds. Apparently he can sling it, too.

Based on one Twitter detective's highly scientific study, that's a 43-yard pass Smart just threw on the money with his legs submerged in water.

Smart apparently played competitive football until sixth grade, too, so he has the "experience." Sign him up!
