NFC West drops: Seahawks slipping
By Mike Sando
The Seattle Seahawks caught the ball exceptionally well during training camp and into the regular season.
They have fallen off dramatically in that area over the past six weeks. Tight end Anthony McCoy and receiver Ben Obomanu have suffered three drops apiece since Week 7, accounting for more than one-third of the team's season total, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Seattle had only three drops through Week 6.
Obomanu is expected to start for Seattle against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night while Sidney Rice recovers from a concussion. Rookie Doug Baldwin, the Seahawks' leading receiver, has only one drop.
The chart below lists NFC West players with at least two drops this season.
