"What is Drop Percentage?

A statistic in football that measures the rate at which a receiver drops the ball compared to the number of times they are targeted with a pass. Drop percentage gives an indication to how often a receiver fails to catch a pass that otherwise should have been catchable, which can indicate how effective a receiver is at making catches. The lower the drop percentage the better for receivers.

Formula: Drop % = drops / targets"

That's a make believe stat, CS..

 

You and I have talked about this before.

What is and isn't a drop is arbitrary....its in the eye of the beholder.

when a ball, is stripped...who's to say if it a drop or not?

 

There is no such thing as 'Drop Percentage' because you cant define a drop

Frank Gore came to Indy to win a Super Bowl.  He could leave Indy without playing in a single playoff game for us

But at the same time Allen hasn't really been playing well, lets all just agree on that.  He can play MUCH better, which I hope he does but it seems injuries and his lack of play is very uninspiring.  Lets just leave it at that lol.  There's Swoop with a big third down catch.

Doubt it this damn franchise is just like the Pacers they will win all the games they can just enough to screw up the draft and just enough to keep the FO from getting canned so we will be average for 10 years

But the important thing is that the Vikings are not a bad defense, actually they have a pretty good pass defense.

    • I know we had a freak show at the combine, but you guys also need to realize that his size is going to be an obstacle for him playing CB.   Bigger CBs are hard to come by. So far the most successful "big" CB is Sherman at 6'3" but he also plays in a zone scheme that masks his flaws, and self admittedly doesn't guard small receivers well. The next best is Trumaine Johnson but he's not exactly a shutdown CB.   If Green was 6'1" I'd see it but at 6'3" in a press man scheme, the chances are very low he'll be good at CB. He'll have the same flaws the Sherman has and then some because he's just not as talented as Sherman. Plus a safety-to-CB move is much harder than the reverse. I can't really think of a recent player who has made that switch and been successful. That's not to say that means if X player was a bad safety but played well when he moved to CB,then Green can do it. Then I'd be a hypocrite. What I'm saying is there isn't even a trend of data to follow to make some sort of accurate assertion of why this could work.   He's a bigger guy, he wasn't good at safety, didn't have good college tape, struggles in coverage, making a rare change, and is on his 3rd position change in 4 years. There's like zero logical reason to think this even MIGHT work.     *
    • I personally think he will probably be cut next year or the following..  Unless he some how becomes good..  I really hope he becomes a great player for us. Hope he learns a lot more in the next few weeks and can start and help out or defense! 
    •   Yeah I never understood the whole "I hope this 2nd round pick ends up being a bust so I can say I told ya so" stance that some Colts fans have. It makes no sense to me whatsoever.
    • JMV referenced Kevin again today and mentioned something quickly about posting a depth chart (also mentioned Akin in regards to the depth chart). I'll have to listen to it tomorrow.
