For Cobb... he so reminds me of Wes Welker in how he plays.. "scatterbugish" but highly effective. Those looking at why Drivers snaps are down.. he'd be the reason. They do about the same thing, thrive on the underneath stuff.. just Cobb is (for Dodd - a Ton) more electric at this point of Drivers career.

Finley is a bigger target than Driver, and based on the very small sample size we have from Driver so far this year, Driver drops the ball a lot more than Finley. But this very well may be a product (in part) of not getting enough snaps.

Wait. What? I'd like to see the stats on that since Finley is dropping the ball literally every game. I think Driver has only been in/thrown to on a handful of plays all year and one of those was a 26 yeard TD up the middle against da Bares.

Obviously that is a very small sample size for Driver, and I don't know how this "Drop rate" is calculated, as 2/6 = 33.3%, not 40%, but the targets and receptions seem sound. And I seem to recall at least 3 drops from Driver so far, but a "Drop" may be subjective (If it hits you in the hands but a defender knocks it loose with a strong punch, is it a drop?). Regardless, you can see Finley targeted 6 times more than Driver has, but with only 3x the drops. Obviously two catches in a row could dramatically change these figures for Driver, but the fact is that he's dropped (at least) a third of the passes thrown his way.

Out of six targets, five were catch-able. Of those five he dropped two. 2 out of 5 = %40

Rodgers threw one to Cobb over the middle, bounce off of Cobbs hands, Driver had to jerk his body back just to have a shot at it, but he did and got his hands on it... but didn't catch it. Since Driver wasn't the target, I'm not sure that counts... also Driver showed great body control just to react and get in a position to put his hands on.

Why isn't there a catch-able list? ...

They're adding the receptions and the drops together to get the catch-able amount.


So their formula for drops is

(100/(R+D))*D = D%

Where
R = Receptions
D = Drops
D% = Drop percentage
