I thought that had come up during the season.
But also, going just from memory and feeling, he dropped a lot of balls last year that he normally would have caught in previous years. And when he drops a ball, it usually kills a drive because it's on a 3rd down where he gets the ball around the line of scrimmage and is expected to do his thing to get to the first down marker.
In previous years, he caught those things and broke them. Last year, not so much.
