    Cruz' down side is he drops too many catch-able throws, and he'll stop going for the ball to avoid contact.

    Then again, when you go for some of Eli's throws you end up like Kevin Boss.
    Torque it till it breaks, then back off a 1/4 turn.

      I'm not convinced he's trying to avoid contact, but he does take his eyes off the ball

        Well are you going by % or total drops? Total drops, Nicks is tied for 5th. By %, Cruz is not one on the worst 10...

          As for Cruz and the other wr's who dropped a lot of passes its clear since they are targeted majority of the time they will have more chance of dropping passes.
          I always thought Nicks had better hands out of the two, not saying Cruz doesn't have good hands, but he tends to look up field before the ball gets to his hands.
          Hi NY,
          i believe Avant is always close to the top in fewest drops

          Nicks definitely has the bigger hands of the 2, what are they 4xls or somethin lol. not worried about these guys at all except maybe Nicks missing a few games a year.

            i think it is to avoid contact but not in the way it sounds.. more like trying to make the first guy miss, he doesnt get aligator arms when defenders are around

                because they are comparing %, not total number of drops.

                  Nicks had a bad catch to target ratio. Cruz had a lot of drops.

                  It would be nice if we can stop making Cruz/Nicks comparisons constantly.
