Hope some of this rubbed off on Reid, since it was written by Mike Holmgren.

Bill was no less adamant about the need to shoot for perfection. His convictions on the matter were illustrated vividly to me during an event that occurred one day in
practice. As the 49ers' quarterback coach, I watched Joe Montana throw a pass slightly behind Jerry Rice, who nevertheless would catch such a pass 99 times out of
100.

Most coaches might be satisfied with this success ratio. Not Bill. He immediately came to me and explained in great detail why a pass involving that route had to be
thrown twelve inches in front of the receiver, not six inches behind him.
