    Dallas Clark & Braylon Edwards each has 12 drops.
    (Edwards did get thrown to more often - 153, Clark, 100)
    So I guess it's Clark who should receive the award.

    Reggie Bush led all RBs with 10 (98 passes thrown to).

    Another great accomplishment by Reggie Boy.[​IMG]

    I've seen enough of Edwards to know he has great hands. 12 isn't such a big number to call these guys stone hands.

    I would think Ricky Williams would be smoking this had he stayed in the league

    12 drops in 153 attempts = 92.2 % catches

    10 drops in 98 attempts = 89.8 % catches


    So yeah, I think % should win.. Besides, at the end of the day; who would you want to throw to??!

    Half of the time, stats is just for fun.
    There's no doubt that Edwards is a pretty good receiver, considering his Y/C and TDs (which is offset quite a bit by the pct. caught).

    So here are the numbers of most of the #1 WRs in the AFC
    (those most likely defended by #1 CB or double teamed).
    I included a few extras, just for comparison:


    Passes Pct. Drops Y/C TDs
    Thrown To Caught
    Braylon Edwards 153 52.3 11 16.1 16
    Lee Evans 113 48.7 5 15.4 5
    Randy Moss 159 61.6 9 15.8 23
    Wes Welker 145 77.2 4 10.5 8
    Jerricho Cotchery 127 64.6 6 13.8 2
    Brandon Marshall 170 60 7 13.0 7
    Dwayne Bowe 117 59.8 5 14.2 5
    Chad Johnson 161 57.8 7 15.5 8
    T.J. Houshmandzadeh 169 66.3 6 10.2 12
    Hines Ward 112 63.4 5 10.3 7
    Santonio Holmes 85 61.2 3 18.1 8
    Derrick Mason 164 62.8 6 10.6 5
    Justin Gage 85 64.7 2 13.6 2
    Reggie Wayne 156 66.7 6 14.5 10
    Reggie Williams 60 63.3 1 16.5 10
    Andre Johnson 86 69.8 2 14.2 8
    Kevin Walter 106 61.3 0 12.3 4
    Andre Davis 63 52.4 2 17.7 3

    Mr. Kevin Walter should earn a raise or sumthing! :specnatz:

    I think Patrick Crayton should get this award for his performance against the Giants.
