    I just read that the Pats are one of three teams that have no dropped passes this year. I know it is only two games, but this is big because guys like Welker and Hernandez were near the top of the league in dropped passes last year (Brandon Tate was up there too, but it is irrelevant now that he is gone). Hopefully this trend will continue throughout the year.

    Not true. Slater dropped a deep bomb in his hands against Miami

    I don't know if that was a credited dropped pass though. According to Mike Sando of ESPN, the Pats have not been credited with a dropped pass.

    Mike Sando could be wrong. Or Stats Inc could be. I can't remember the play exactly, but I do remember that Slater should have/could have caught the ball.

    The play in question, while completely Slater's fault, would have been an outstanding catch if he made it because of his body positioning. He got completely twisted around on that play. Again, it was completely his own fault, but I'm pretty sure you can't really count that as a drop because of how hard it would have been to actually catch it.


    or at least that's how I remember it.

    I don't recall much in the way of difficult catches either. Receivers have been open; Brady has been on target.

    I thought welker dropped a couple of passes in the chargers game, I think it was on a screen play.

    Something is amiss because Football Outsiders has no WR with a 100% catch rate.

    This will change as the weather gets colder, passes sting more, and tackles hurt a little more. We'll see more dropsies then.

    Not familiar with their method on this, but could that be referring to targets vs. catches? In that case it's possible not to catch every ball you're targeted with, but still not have any drops.

    I must admit I am pathologically cautious about jinxing the Pats when I watch the games. It's a sickness, really.

    I am not worried. I am sure that Bill O'Brien or Chad Ochocinco will be blamed for every dropped pass on the game day thread on Sunday. Ochocinco will probably be blamed even if he isn't on the field.

    I am pretty sure they use targets vs. catches which means that even if they are not catchable balls.

    That went down as a defensed pass (defender tipped it) and not a dropped pass. It would have a been a very tough catch.
