    Yes, Dropped Passes A Problem For Rams Receivers

    Yes, dropped passes a problem for Rams receivers
    By Jim Thomas
    St. Louis Post-Dispatch


    As might be expected with a young and relatively inexperienced wide receiver corps, the Rams are among the league leaders in dropped passes midway through the 2009 season.

    According to STATS LLC, Rams receivers have dropped 18 passes this season, which ties them (with three other teams) for the third-highest number of drops this season. Even when you factor in so-called “catchable” balls, the Rams are still among the NFL’s worst in terms of dropped passes.

    The latest STATS LLC figures show that 11 percent of the Rams’ catchable passes have been dropped, which is the seventh-worst figure in the league. Cleveland’s receivers have dropped a league-worst 17.6 percent of their passes; Houston is the league’s best at 3.6 percent.

    Obviously, what constitutes a drop and a catchable pass can be subjective. But the numbers still underscore one of the problems with the St. Louis passing game. In a breakdown per Rams quarterback, Kyle Boller actually gets the worst of it with 12.5 percent of his catchable passes dropped (seven of 56), compared to Marc Bulger’s 10.4 percent (11 of 106).

    * Rams healthy

    Once again, RG Richie Incognito (foot) was the only Rams player to miss practice. DE C.J. Ah You (ankle) was officially listed as limited on the team’s Thursday’s injury report, but continues to get a lot of work in practice. LG Jacob Bell (thumb) was full participation.

    Well we knew this. However, this is what we expected going into the season with such young players. =/ Have no choice but to tough it out now...

    I agree with ya Moose, it is what it is for now and we have to suffer through it the best we can. It seems though that it's kind of a trend around the league right now, Williams in Dallas, Edwards before he left Cleveland. Don't really know why but it seems like alot of passes get dropped this year, maybe defenses have gotten a touch quicker and the recievers haven't adjusted yet.

    To be honest, seventh-worst is a lot better than I would have guessed. I'd have thought we'd be in the bottom three easily.

    Yes but it’s not just youth IMO we must make some up grade in talent. I think Avery took some steps back this season.
