Agreed. Agreed.
In the OT, whch should have have gone to OT, Harp had that TD fall between his hands and fingers.

There was a lot of dropies on the AF side too.
Come to think of it.

The other drill is the tip drill. It is taught to our D-backs. Sharper and Sammy Knight are anomalies. They just have a knack for finding the ball. If all D-backs could do that, we wouldn't praise the ones that stand out.

It is a difficult thing to coach. It is even more difficult to identify the D-backs that can make it happen.
I was thinking and going to say the exact same thing. Do people honestly think these guys aren't doing there tip drills and working with the jug machine?

Guys like Shaquille O'Neal and Dwight Howard shot thousands of free throws a day... they still don't make them.

Agreed Papz. The DBs are DBs BECAUSE they can't catch.

The turnovers will come.
Our guys are working really hard.

I really believe that we will peak at the correct time.
Late in the season and playoffs.
If not? Why even play? Why should we watch?

The glass is half full!

This plays right into the teaching, and working on skills even with tackling its not going on at practice.

I am also noticing the drop INT's because in 09 those INT's were differet variety. Sharper was sitting back there and jumping the routes, our DB's also jumped a lot more routes perhaps the fact they knew Sharper, their leader was back their behind them and trusted they had their back.

Our drops are coming off the CB's giving chase and not in the same positions or situations as they were in 09.

If 20+ years of pee-wee, high school, college, and ultimately pro fooball can't teach you how to catch a football, a bye-week isn't going to solve it.

Even still, I am always shocked at how someone who plays professional football, especially a receiver or a DB, can't learn how to catch after so many years of playing the game. I never thought of catching a football as something like calculus-based physics, where some people can learn it and some can't. It's a damn football and should be something you can get better at with practice, but I'm now convinced that I'm wrong, some people have it and some don't.
