You're in good hands in Carolina

Very interesting statistic from Stats Inc. Through four games and 120 attempts, the Carolina Panthers have dropped only one pass. That's a pretty remarkable number and a tribute to the receivers and quarterback Jake Delhomme.

The lone drop was by Muhsin Muhammad, who has been targeted a team-high 37 times. Only Miami has less drops. The Dolphins have yet to drop a pass in 96 attempts. The Saints also are pretty impressive in this department with only three drops in 148 attempts.

Here's a team-by-team look at the amount of passes dropped:
