Miles Austin doesn't want to think about drops
After six games in the 2010 season, Austin led the Cowboys with four dropped passes, including a two-drop game against the New York Giants. During this stretch, Austin did some funky things with his gloves. He cut the palms out of them. We'll never know whether that worked. Asked about his own issues with drops, Austin tried his best to avoid the subject.
"I don’t know," said Austin, who finished the 2010 season with 10 drops, fifth in the NFL. "I think it’s for me personally, you've got to stay focus and continue to work each and every day in every aspect of your game whether its catching or route running."
Austin hasn't dropped a pass in 2012, and he had only three last season. He's tied with Kevin Ogletree for the team lead in catches (14). Austin does lead the team in receiving yards at 243 and he's also tied with Ogletree in touchdown receptions at two.
As for Witten, Austin said he's not worried about the talented tight end.
"Not concerned at all," Austin said.
