Default dropping passes

last year i watched johnson drop some easy passes. heyward jefferies would have caught 200 passes for the season if he wouldn't have dropped so many of moon's passes. if johnson is to achieve the greatness he's capable of, he'll have to find a way to hang on to all the gimmes as well as the close ones. the acrobatic catches are wonderful things to watch, but when you drop 6, it slays me as well as everyone involved. this should be our breakout year. i will be disappointed if we stay relatively healthy and not make the playoffs. afterall, we do have a little bench depth now. hey, DC, take our team to the next level. if you need anything, just hollar. big dave

AJ had only one more drop then Randy Moss last year, infantrycak posted that stat and here it is:

T.O. had more or about the same as AJ, I think.

All the star WRs in the league make the great ones, but drop the easy ones. You have to live with it.

I think the difference in that is how many balls they each had thrown to them. if Moss had 100 thrown to him and dropped 10.. and Johnson had 60 thrown to him and dropped 10.. that looks worse on Johnson.

But im not worried about it.. it was his rookie season and he still did great. he can only get better.

Here is a link to shed a little light on the subject. notice that DD is on the list as well, but not many of you are complaining about his hands...

IMO 10 dropped passes is not all that bad for a rookie

He was just a rookie so I'm not worried about that at this point.
