    Aaron Hernandez - TE - Patriots

    Aaron Hernandez finished 37th out of 38 qualifying tight ends in Pro Football Focus' drop percentage metric for the 2010 season.
    The hip injury wasn't the only factor in Hernandez's lost playing time down the stretch. His nine drops on 55 catchable balls landed him in the doghouse, playing a part in his 486 snaps versus 756 for fellow rookie Rob Gronkowski. Hernandez was billed as sure-handed entering the league, so fantasy owners can expect a bounce-back in his performance going forward. He's an ideal "buy" in Dynasty leagues.

    I don't trust PFF to measure anything. Not even dropped passes.

    I did not think he would be 37 of 38

    I remember dropped passes I woulda guessed 7 at most.

    They DEEM it CATCHABLE... so I bet a few of those were tough balls, but he shoulda had it according to them.... and it gets added to the stat.:mad:

    he is a ROOKIE so eff these bogus scores no love

    If they said TFB threw 50 TDs in 2007, I'd ask for a recount. ;)

    Yeah, I'm with you on the point of emphasis there. Frankly, I couldn't care less what PFF deems catchable, because however it's defined there, it's almost guaranteed to be wrong/stupid/pointless.

    Anyone who is paid to catch a ball by the Patriots had the case of the drops in 2010. It was the first time in as long as I can remember that the receivers or tight ends (not named Ben Watson) dropped easy open field and red zone passes with some regularity.

    Going by memory, which may not be the best, I remember Hernandez making the the improbable,,, impossible catch, but not dropping them,,

    Now if they said he was 37th out of 38 in terms of blocking, that I would believe,,

    FWIW, Stats Inc. recorded 7 drops for Hernandez.

    Leaders - Pass Dropped - NFL -

    Regardless of what PFF or Stats Inc. says, Hernandez definitely dropped some passes he shouldn't have. It was definitely an issue, one that needs to be corrected. Hernandez was targeted 64 times so depending on count, it's at least 10% of passes being dropped.

    Yeah, we should release the bum. I'm sure he would go unclaimed.

    don't even joke...

    that # surprised me. Eyeball test I thought he was excellent as a rookie. Gronk was better, but they r 2 different TE's:rocker:

    How have they only got it out of 38 TEs?

    That averages to 1.19 TEs per team! And with me knowing the Pats have 3, that lowers it to 1.06 per team!

    He had that one game against Baltimore where he dropped the potential game-winner late and then dropped another short one right after that. He dropped a tough would-be TD in the opener against Cincy. Other than that, he was pretty excellent all year. I doubt TB is going to avoid him because of a few rookie-jitters moments.

    Who cares what PFF think?

    The reason he played less snaps than Gronk was that he was partially injured, plus he's a pretty poor blocker.

    like I was saying before... they deem the balls as "catchable". I bet a few of those were very tough balls to get and were dropped. They count "tough" balls even though they hide behind the catchable label.:snob:

    An error in baseball happens w/ a routine play being botched. Aaron running his speedy routes across the field encountered very tough passes, but apparently if balls are a bit high or short or to early that accounts for a dropped pass they deem as catchable. I thought my man had a GREAT year. Why do they begrudge him for dropping 7 balls (high undoubtedly, but they claim them as catchable balls by their scrutiny. Was AH perfect? No. he did drop some balls sh!t happens he is a rookie.

    I love this kid. He is a rookie so did this group come together to screw the rookie? Hernandez has topnotch abilities and I loved watching him every week when he was a Gator. I don't have an NCAA team and I aligned myself w/ Meyer because he coached a great group Tebow, Hernandez, Spikes. This is all superfluous stuff, but I LOVED watching that team play.

    on another note I should have posted that GRONK made an additional 2 MILLION in Bonuses last year

    Just opinion but Gronk seemed like the go to Tight End in the red zone from my observations. It was kinda like watching Rivers look for Gates seeing Brady to Gronkowski.
