Steelers' drops

In the process of researching Wednesday's story on Pittsburgh Steelers second-year receiver Limas Sweed, I was able to get a list of dropped passes for the 2008 Pittsburgh Steelers. The graph wasn't used because, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, Sweed did not drop a pass in the regular season.

But in an effort not to let good information go to waste, I figured Steeler Nation would be interested in the list anyway.

Keep in mind, this is for the regular season only and drops are not an official NFL stat. If you check three different sources on a player, you may get three different answers.

But Elias is the most reputable stat agency in the country, so we're going by their count.

Who had the dropsies in Pittsburgh?
Player Position Drops
Hines Ward WR 7
Nate Washington WR 7
Santonio Holmes WR 5
Heath Miller TE 3
Mewelde Moore RB 3
Matt Spaeth TE 3
Willie Parker RB 2
Carey Davis FB 1
Dallas Baker WR 1
