ProFootballFocus: Best/Worst drop rate for 2011 WRs

https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...ping-the-ball/


Might want to think twice before championing for DeSean Jackson's services. Had a 13.4% drop rate. On another note, many people talked about Vjax, but I always thought they should be looking at Malcom Floyd. This report leads me to believe I was correct in that thinking.

I'm surprised to see Roddy White with 15 drops. That's horrible.

Eh, I don't pay a lot of attention to that. It's hard to gauge how and why those receivers dropped those passes. Since the NFL is a quarterback driven league nowdays, you're going to have more passing attempts, which will lead to more drops, more catches, more yards after the catch (hopefully anyway) and ultimately more TD catches. The yards after the catch and the TDs are the things I'm most concerned about.

I am going to guess that in order for something to be counted as a drop, it has to hit the receiver's hand. While the way the QB throws the ball can certainly lead to the WR dropping the ball, I would say that this is a good assessment of how reliable a wideout is at holding on to the ball.

You'd also have to look at how they dropped the ball. How many of those passes were hailmary passes, how many were passes that would require some amazing circus type of catch, how many of those passes were just short enough to get one hand on it, but maybe too long to really reach out to catch. I just think there are a lot of variables that one must consider before saying the receiver has the case of the dropsees and shouldn't be considered.

Skinsguy, if you look at the list they have "catchable" so they aren't counting passes your are referring to.

Or in Moss' case, how many hit you in the numbers on a slant yet you still managed to drop.

I mainly posted this to show how good Gaffney was this year for us.

I see that, but still one can't derive, clearly, that these receivers have the case of the drops when there are a lot of variables that go into this. For one thing, look how many more passing attempts are thrown Roddy White's way as opposed to Golden Tate. 115 to 35? How many of those are little hitch passes, bombs down field, perfectly thrown balls, etc.... And, the receivers with the best percentage of catches:drops ratio, why aren't they being thrown to more if they're that more fundamentally sound?

I just think this is one of those situations where unless you look at every single drop from these receivers, I'd be hard press to conclude their fundamentals are lacking.

No one is concluding this.

Santana had a really bad season. maybe his worst season as a player. I think he certainly is expendable especially with Gaffney stepping up.

The numbers are what they are. There are variables to everything if you really want to go down that path. You can use that line of reasoning with everything. Sacks, INTS, tackles, fumbles, passing yards, blocks, rushing yards, etc.

In the end, the numbers are what they are. Rex Grossman threw 20 INTs this year, I don't see a * denoting a few of those INTs were caused by the WR. Nope.

They presented the numbers and they are accurate. They aren't going to include some hail mary catch that isn't catchable as part of the stat, which is why they have "catchable" listed and not "targeted".

Also, nobody concluded their fundamentals are lacking. We are concluding their catching ability is.



Drew Brees has 3 WRs in the top 20 on this list and Aaron Rodgers has 2. Always helps a good QB when you have decent guys catching the ball.
