Crabtree: What drops?
Has Michael Crabtree dropped any passes in recent games? I guess it depends on who you ask. Crabtree, for instance, didn't seem to recall any passes he could have possibly hauled in when I asked him about recent drops today.
Me: You don't think you've had any drops?
MC: What are you talking about?
Me: Balls you could have caught.
MC: No. If they were on the sideline or something, or too high or something. I never, ever ... Have you ever seen me deal with drops in my college career?
What a douche.
The dropped passes don't bother me as much as the tipped for INT ones. Don't buy the 'Smith threw it too hard' crap. Marino, Elways, and Favre all at some point zipped their throws at the last second before defenders got to them. They threw a little in front, a little behind, a little high, a little towards the ground, but all within body reach of the receiver, and they expect them to catch the ball. They don't throw the ball thinking 'I need to throw it nice and soft for my receiver' so they don't have to reach for it. It's more like 'I did my best to avoid a sack, make a play, it's your job to catch the freak'n ball'
