    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!

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.

    Re: 2nd 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!
