How many passes bounce of chests, helmets and hands a game. We have to lead the league in drops. This doesnt even mention the ones that are a little off target that all the quality recievers in the league go get anyway. No your not Megatron but damn man at least try and go after it you never know you might make your QB look good for a change.
There have been quite a few days when Alex made our recievers look bad, but can we truely say there has ever been a day when the recievers made him look good?
Ironically I thought of one in the Cards game. It was Ginn making a fabulous catch for a 1st down conversion near the goal-line. It's one of the reason I don't hate Ginn as much despite of he drops.
haha yeah the WRs make nice catches on overthrows all the time. See Detroit and Crabtree. See Vernon Davis 2009.
Sometimes better throws would lead to less drops. Imagine if i threw 100 passes that were perfect spirals and on target. And now image i threw 100 passes that were slightly off target, wobbly, or not with the correct velocity.
Of the perfect 100 balls, more will be caught then the off target balls.
I think Smith needs to be more precise in his deep to middle range passing. Also, getting the ball out has not just been an issue this past game. It has been an issue all year but its been hidden due to Defense, ST and the running game. Defense and running game hit a lul and the QB is getting exposed. Its not like we were lighting it up with Alex before this past game. We squeeked by our victories with good ST, D and running the ball. Getting the ball out has always been Alex's problem. That combined with poor pocket awareness, which are two in the same, has led to an average season on a very good team.
