This picture shows the exact reason AJ drops allot of balls. He's catching it against his chest.

Yeah his hands are facing his body like a punt returner not opened up to the ball like they are supposed to. I still think he is one of the best in the league though.

Too many guys are catching the ball this way. When they are young, they should be taught to use their hands. That is the proper technique.

If you look at WRs around the league, this technique is all over the place.

The great WRs in the NFL catch the ball with their fingers, not their chest.

I have seen him catch balls like that but more often than not he catches it in his arms or in his chest.

If he can get rid of that habit then he will be the BEST WR in the NFL.

Can they really call the leading receiver in the NFL in both catches and yards a "sleeper" pick for the Pro Bowl? Great pic though, he has some crazy jumping ability.

Good question. From an article asking why people follow TO and Chad Johnson:

Quote:
Compare these two to other receivers:
  • Owens has 44 receptions, 558 yards and six touchdowns.
  • Chad Johnson has 40 receptions for 443 yards and two touchdowns.
  • Andre Johnson of the Texans has caught 65 passes for 752 yards and four touchdowns.
  • Reggie Wayne of the Colts has amassed 732 yards and five scores.
  • Marques Colston of the Saints has scored seven touchdowns with 700 yards and 44 receptions.
  • The Cardinals' Anquan Boldin stars for a team that has only won one game, but he continues to put up impressive statistics with 48 receptions for 608 yards.

The media will continue to follow Chad Johnson & TO until they shut up.

The media loves controversy. That is what makes them money.

They dont want to talk about AJ leading the league in catches & yds. They wanna talk about what Chad & TO do off the field.

Default Re: Dr Z's Sleeper All Pros

I would like to point out that last week AJ did use his hands and did not let every ball get to his body. Yes I was looking at that, because I made those same statements after AJ let the ball get intercepted on Sage's first pass when Carr was benched. So maybe the coaches saw it and made a suggestion. Of course I find it ironic that the change happened after a Rosenfeld INT, and not after AJ did the same thing for an INT not two weeks prior to that from Carr.

The other pick, I assume you are talking about the Miami one, was not about his hands. He caught it up high and the corner just took it from him. The catch was good, but it wasnt all that secure. But he has had some problems letting the ball get into his body, which is why he is so good at jump balls, he can jump and extend his arms like very few can.

This doesn't really involve his All-Pro's picks, but what exactly does Dr. Z do? He predicts about 8 games a week in a column that takes up half the page and he's the one that predicts how every team will do (he predicted Miami to go to the Super Bowl). I do enjoy watching his "Z Says, She Says" every week on SI.com because Brooklyn Decker is amazingly hot, but I think Dr. Z is overrated. Peter King is better.

Saying Peter King is better than Dr. Z is like saying diarrhea is better than constipation.
