Getting the drop on Dolphins receivers
Spurred by a question posed in my AFC East mailbag, we're running a series of posts to show how successful each team was last year at catching the ball.
Dropped passes aren't an official stat, but Elias Sports Bureau tracks them. Elias uses a common-sense analysis of "should the receiver have caught the ball." If there's any doubt among Elias analysts, the player isn't charged with a drop.
Wide receiver Ted Ginn's six drops led the team. He made 56 catches, giving him a drop percentage of 9.7.
