    Its also interesting to note that AJ/Marsh both had the most "Catchable" passes thrown to them on the list, and since we had two different QBs in the season, i think its safe to chalk this up to Trestman's offensive scheme: his plays get WRs in the best position to catch the ball, and our QBs have excellent timing with them (combined with an OL that gives them enough time to throw accurate passes)

    B.Marsh has always had a high drop rate, but he more than makes up for it with his overall game. A couple of years ago folks were pointing out that Earl Bennett had a solid drop rating while Brandon Marshall was pretty bad. But which guy would you want as your #1? Obviously Marshall.

    WRs are more than just ball catchers. That hit BM put on Sean Lee is forever etched in my mind and is worth a few dropped balls.

    That's true, he's always high on that list of drops per catchable balls but those 23 tds in two seasons offset any negatives that come from a few drops. The guy is the best scorer we have.

    Ill take the 100 catches out 115. I think most of us would say that Brandon is worth it.

    Everytime he dropped a pass, I thought to myself he is going to make plenty of catches to make up for that one.

    Yeah, me too. When was the last time we ever had a WR with future HOF credentials? He drops a few he should catch but he still catches most of them and he's been doing it his entire career. Drops or not he's still a top five WR.
