True, I think Harbaugh actually has a drill where they run behind a barrier and have to catch the ball with just a moment to adjust. I love these drills as the WRs and TEs need to improve sighting and adjusting to the ball in all areas of the field.
Oldman9er--love the idea of night practice! There were too many plays last year where the receiver did circles trying to locate the ball. I can recall two TDs that weren't due to this lack of tracking.
49erall--Not sure I go for the arrow idea. Perhaps they should have to catch a venomous snake if they drop a ball? That might help them focus.
