He didn't do anything with what he was offered up last year early on. I mean are we seriously going to use Fleener like the colts did so he can drop crucial passes? I want Fleener to have volume.

It's put up or shut up for the offense next year. And with that schedule I'm nervous.

I'm confused. Are you talking about Fleener or Hill?

Re: Josh Hill

I mean Fleener shared snaps with Allen which many on here said led to his dropped passes. If Hill is more involved than last year then that's likely the case and it will be perceived another BUST signing.

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...
