New Orleans Saints playmakers have been dropping the ball in 2012: First-and-10
 
1. DROPPING THE BALL: Dungy correctly indentified one of the Saints' most disturbing and uncharacteristic trends of the 2012 season - dropped passes. And they continued to rear their ugly head in last Sunday's 28-27 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Receiver Lance Moore dropped two passes against the Packers, and tailback Darren Sproles dropped the crucial third-down pass that Dungy referenced late in the fourth quarter. Three other dropped passes (by Moore, Sproles and Marques Colston) were nullified by penalties.

It may not be our only problem but I would bet if we didn't have all the dropped passes we would have won at least 3 of the last 4 games.

Agreed. I can think of at least three or four scoring opportunities that fell by the wayside due to drops. Two in the KC game alone on back-to-back plays.

You read my mind. Usually happens on the second scoring drive. They put one great drive together and start shooting themselves in the foot.

And usually in the red zone.

What's our problem?

Defense, offense and special teams.
