I just heard Adam Jones interview Ben Volin on 98.5 just now. Volin brought up a good point. Although the Pats are currently first in the league in dropped passes with 23, they were also first in the league at this point last year with 18. Granted the Pats' offense was still worlds better last year at this point, but the drops were an issue last year as they are this year. Maybe the jugs machine broke down before last season and Kraft has been too cheap to get a new one.
