Edit: Just tested, no you can’t negative edge throws (except for special moves like SPD, ochio, etc.)
You can’t, but you can still press more thows buttons for a better chance, one just does not get the extra ones of the negative edge.

I can’t say that the best of the best use this trick, but I think it can help some of us scrubs gets some reversals when we have to guess timings while still having a chance to block a potentially devestating combo.
I tought you could do that on reversals and not throws. If he is going for the reversal dp like he said he could then use that techniche, like is explain of the wiki.
Safe reversal is a very useful (but very difficult) option select technique. When your opponent does a meaty to you, safe reversal allows you to attempt a reversal risk-free. For the command of the move you’re attempting to do as a reversal, rather than leaving the stick in the command’s final position and pushing the buttons, if you quickly move the stick to D/B and release the buttons after finishing the motion, you will block if you didn’t time the reversal correctly.
For example, with Ryu, as you’re getting up, hold all three punches, then do F, D, DF, D/B+release Jab~release Strong~release Fierce. If you timed it correctly, you will get a DP. If you didn’t time it correctly, you will block. Note that you only have a relatively small window of time to reach D/B and release the buttons, so you must be quick.
