We can't argue with the facts because right now we don't have any. To say that Driver "drops his fair share of passes" is a guess, not a fact. I just did a google search to try and get some stats, but I couldn't find any. I do remember that there was a story about this recently either in the GB Press-Gazette or the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, and they said that Driver's percentage of drops was something like 2% last season and 1% the season before, which they implied were both low numbers. But I wish I could find some solid numbers. I think it was in '05 that Driver had a lot of drops. Last year Greg Jennings was the one who had trouble catching the ball at times.


God I wish I could find stats better. I seem to recall Driver having actually a quite low percentage of drops compared to other starting WRs in the NFL.


I found these stats:

Not a drop% or every player in the league, but it does tell us the leaders for drops last year.

Thanks.

It appears, Driver's pretty good at not dropping the ball during regular season.

Then click the NFC link, and once again, you won't see Driver's name.

Why? Because Driver doesn't drop that many balls, even though he's had more balls thrown to him than half those clowns.

I agree with the first half of this, Driver does miss Favre but that doesn't mean he won't play for this team. Driver is a Pro player and he knows that the team comes first.

Trading Driver would be the 2nd stupidest thing this team could do now.

They already did the first.
