Overall he has (knock on wood) made great strides this year:

2003 119 targets, 10 drops--8.4%
2004 106 targets, 4 drops--3.7%

For a comparison to some other WR's:
Isaac Bruce--108/4--3.7%
Donald Driver--92/7--7.6%
Marvin Harrison--102/4--3.9%
Torry Holt--87/2--2.3%
Terrell Owens--100/5--5%
Jimmy Smith--97/6--6.2%
Hines Ward--76/2--2.6%
Joe Horn--103/5--4.8%

Great (and very interesting) stats.
