  • 2nd in dropped passes.

    Hang on tight: Even if the Giants' offensive line can keep the Jets away from quarterback Eli Manning, Manning will need his receivers to catch the ball. According to ESPN Stats & Information, Giants receivers have 28 dropped passes this season, second-most in the league behind the Cleveland Browns. Hakeem Nicks' drop of what would have been a long touchdown pass early in the Week 15 loss to Washington stands out, but the team has five drops in the past two weeks. Victor Cruz leads the team with seven this season, and Nicks, Jake Ballard and Mario Manningham have five.

    It will be such a grand feeling if the Giants can hold onto the ball and beat the Cowpies on Sunday. What a Day!

      Man, the WRs are slacking... 2nd!!! Come on, we all know they can be 1st in the league in drops! Just like last year! Get it together WRs and start dropping more easy catchable balls!

        Nicks has been doing his best lately to get us to #1

That would be interesting as well.
          No one remembers who came in second.

            As long as the WIN is there at the end of the game, the drops are forgiven and will be overlooked.

                Nicks and Cruz, for the first time in franchise history I think, both surpassed 1,000 yards this season. Cruz has broken Amani Toomer's single season YPC record, with Nicks not far behind, yet here we are focusing on their drops?

                Obviously, we want them to catch them all as unrealistic an expectation as that is.

                  Not so fast that 2nd in drops was prior to the Jets game. I believe they now have sole possesion of 1st place in dropped passes.

                    i think the collective hands on the giants have been among the worst in the league for a while now. the receivers do make some nice catches, but it's when they drop the easy ones and the TDs, along with missed opportunities for interceptions by the D that it hurts the worst.

                    will allen dropped about every pick he had a chance at while with the giants. he's definitely spread his "illness" to others and it has spread thru the organization over the years!

                      im honestly thinking the giants would have to have about twice as many as any other team. okay, maybe not really but it sure feels that way. id say about 70% of eli's picks the past 2 seasons have hit his own receiver before getting picked off.

Drew Brees is going to set the single-season passing mark, and both Marques Colston and Jimmy Graham, as well as Darren Sproles, have had amazing seasons. If they can put it together without drops, why can't Cruz and Nicks? Need to expect more imo.

                          And people say Colt McCoy is a bad qb because his receivers drop all of his passes.....
                          Well anyway I think this falls on the Wide Receivers coach. Fire him!

                              Here's a link that shows the GIANTS at # 10 in dropped passes. I'm not big on stats, but is it possible ESPN got it wrong?
