Default Washington drop

did anyone see washingtons drop yesterday when ben avoided the rush and rolled out. he hit washington in the numbers and he dropped it.

im not ragging on him but what i really liked was ben going right back to him on the next play. i really like that attitude.

I think his acrobatic catch in traffic while being clocked and still managing to hang on to it more than made up for it.

Nate had a great game. That one drop is nothing in comparison to a few receivers in this league. (Ask the Jets)

I still can't believe people wanted Washington cut because of a few drops last year and in the preseason. He is a beast athlete and if he can learn to catch more often could really become an outstanding receiver. All the guy does is get open, play after play.

You can ask the Titans too.

Seriously, he got laid out on that middle route catch he made and hanged on to the ball. That was a big play.

I was pleasantly surprised when he did not drop that pass, when he got hit by three guys! But true to form, he drops a wide open pass. I'm one for hoping he keeps improving and makes many more acrobatic catches.

If you look at the play again, it sure looks like the ball was tipped before it got to him...changing the trajectory of the ball.

When CBS changed to that game and I saw the situation I had no doubt that Young was going to have a game winning drive. Have seen him do it so many times over the past few years at Texas and last year that I honestly had no doubt in my mind at all he would win.

When I saw there was a minute left down by two against the Colts I actually went to my dad and said "Want to see Vince Young win a game?? It's a shame to because just like Clemens he did his part but the receivers couldn't hold on.

Washington if nothing else (and I know you guys don't like this word) is a great project.

Must.... resist....

As I had even mentioned in the game thread, and as many agree, the catch he made in traffic made up for it.

Every receiver drops the ball. If he has a solid year, I'm willing to bury the hatchet.
