Catching Drills

This is something so simple. If I was Jeff Fisher, I would make Nick Foles play catch with every single wide receiver on the team until the drops stopped. The Rams receiving core has dropped way too many passes over the first five games, and it is truly unacceptable considering the accuracy of the throws being dropped. All these receivers need to just stand in front of those automatic ball throwing machines until they can remember how to catch, and I wouldn’t stop this drill until the week ends. Keeping an eye on Nick Toon wouldn’t hurt either, since he is known for his size and ability to catch the ball. I can think of many plays where if a third down pass isn’t dropped, our record might be 4-1 instead of 2-3.

In a surprising stat, the only Rams player to not drop a pass this season is Tavon Austin. I’m sure you all saw that coming.
