Anybody else notice how our DBs seem to still not be able to catch a ball

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Most everything I hear about our DBs coming out of camp are that they are dropping balls left and right. After the season they had last season I would think that area would be a top priority in this years ...

Anybody else notice how our DBs seem to still not be able to catch a ball

Most everything I hear about our DBs coming out of camp are that they are dropping balls left and right. After the season they had last season I would think that area would be a top priority in this years camp. I hope this is not a sign that we have not improved in this area. Has anyone who has been to practice noticed this first hand?

Yea one. Other than that I hear that him and Malcom are dropping everything thrown their way with maybe one going to a rookie or 2nd string man. I think it was between Greer and Patrick that picked off Drew if I am not mistaken. Point is, a lot of interceptions are being dropped.

Maybe I should have titled the thread to specifically say Jenkins and Harper. I also don't feel the excitement coming out of camp as I have in years past.

There's only 1 practice allowed per day around the NFL as per the CBA.
For years 2-a-days were heavy during camp.

Now they get 1 practice and most of it is indoors in the closed Saints facility.

So you're not getting the fan based local traffic at practices, especially since the first 4 days were practically rained out.

There's a reason why they're playing corner and not receiver.

Next optimistic thread...

Anyone else notice how many passes Drew is throwing that could be intercepted?
