As far as the drops go, you don't remember this thread? You posted in it.
Throw in a flat out drop against Seattle and another pass he caught, started to bring down and then lost when he was hit by Earl Thomas.
In the Chicago and Seattle games alone, that's 5.
The problem wasn't him not knowing his assignment, as has been stated already. He had a read to make on the play, as well as Tony. He read the DB coming up and attacking the play immediately, so he moved to get behind him and had him beat. Tony just didn't see it the same way. Not as simple as you'd like it to be, but i understand its easier for some to just say Dez didn't know his assignment or his route or his playbook.. because that's the group think.
I keep asking how many drops he has this season, and people keep referencing this one game. Yes, he had a bad game.. other than that, i've heard of one other drop now, in the Seattle game.
(Its not a drop when the defender breaks up the pass or knocks the ball loose during the process of a reception, btw.)
So scratch out the bad game he had, that he owned up to right away and took responsibility for.. he has one drop on the season.
My, that is an alarming rate.
