Now, in 2012 he didn't play as well, just like everyone else on this team didn't play as well. But let's keep things in perspective.
a) we're coming off a Super Bowl
b) teams had a full season of tape on him
c) Nicks injury
d) O-Line struggles
e) Eli did not return to 2011 form
f) no Manningham
g) it was his sophomore season
As far as me being critical of Eli, that occurred in year 6 of his career, and not after his 2nd season, so there is a difference.
Is this a list of the best receivers in the game?........Well pretty close, but no.
Its a list of the NFL leaders in drops in the NFL last season.
So can we stop with the "dropped passes" nonsense. The list of the leaders in dropped passes is always a list of some of the best pass catchers in the game.
As I said........meaningless stat.
