Falcons TWESTOTE of the Day: Julio Jones and Dropped Passes

JJ cheesing his dreads off.

His hands aren't as bad as Jon Gruden thinks they are. If you haven't seen this must-read from last weekend, I'd suggest you take a look. NFC West Blog's Mike Sando compared Julio's drop percentage and catch-to-drop ratio to those of five NFC West receivers (Fitzgerald, Amendola, Williams, Crabtree, and Breaston).

Jones had more drops than any receiver on the list and the second-highest drop percentage, but his catch-to-drop ratio wasn't out of line.

He was targeted 108 times last year (78 receptions and 8 drops). He caught 72 percent of what was thrown at him. Four less drops last year and his catch-to-drop ratio would've been on par with Fitzgerald's (who only caught 51 percent of what was thrown at him).

Bottom line: his so-called issue with the dropsies is way overblown.
