I watched every second of every game this year save for the Jacksonville game and the second Jets game and I don't recall him dropping too many passes. Don't forget, it doesn't count as a dropped pass if it's an errant throw; it's gotta be a pass that he should have had.
Oh, I know. And I don't think that there were a ton of them. I just remember screaming at the TV a lot more than once, and I love CJ. There were a few short slants IIRC where the ball hit him right in the numbers. I also recall a few that IMO he should have caught but were not good passes, and I wouldn't call them drops.
In fact, in line with what NoSaint is saying, there are a lot of plays in the NFL where it is both a bad pass by the qb AND a blatant drop by the wr or rb. I wonder how PFF measures those. Or, like when the ball is right in the wr or rb's hands and he gets hit almost right away by a defender that makes him drop it. Do they call that a drop? You can understand why it wasn't a completion and it wasn't a flat drop, but he got two hands on it clean, pulled it in and should have held on.
