Why do people keep saying fleener dropped a ton of passes? He had one of the best catch to drop ratios in the nfl.

He had a much better ratio than Watson did, with the Colts QB struggle last year even...

Because its the popular thing to say about a TE or WR without having a clue if its true or not. Often based on one play in one game.

Ask the Colts' fans; Fleener dropped some crucial drive extending drives and red zone opportunities...

Colston dropped a couple of those the last two seasons and that seems to be that all some Saints fans remember...

Hoping Da Mullet can be more clutch and be more successful...

Hard to cover 3 big men with Coleman(6'6), Hill(6'5), Fleener(6'6)
When exactly did Hill and Graham tear it up together? I'm not being sarcastic, I'm seriously asking. Hill has done virtually nothing by any logic I can think of. I don't get what the point is of continuing to kick this proverbial can down the road.

I don't think Hill has done much from a catching standpoint, I can' speak of what else he brings to the table. I do remember him making some plays on ST, however.

I agree though, I don't remember them both having like 50-70 catches one season. Thought the same when I read it!

I agree we have not really seen that much from Hill. SP really sang His praised last year and Hill's contributions did not amount to much. He looks slow to me and not a type that can evade tacklers. I would like to see Him do well but I don't really get why SP is so high on Him. Verdict for me is hope for the best.
