In speaking about American football, the position called quarteback, is the one most often having the responsibility of throwing the football to one of his receiving players. In doing so certainly distance is an important factor but that alone is not sufficient. Accuracy combined with distance can make or break a football play. At the professional football level, a coach can expect the quarterback to be able to throw a football at between 45 to 60 yards with accuracy.

The answer is 45 degrees. If given the same velocity, and thrown at say...10 degrees, to the ground, then the distance it would travel is the same as the distance it would travel if it were thrown 80 degrees. Complementary angles end up at the same distance horizontally.
