Very very often I have read and/or heard people say that Devery Henderson has the most dropped passes in the NFL. After hearing it so much, you start to believe something like that. So I asked myself, is this a stat that the NFL or some reputable news source keeps track of? The answer is clearly no. After a quick Google, here is the only list of dropped passes stats that I could find: Dropped Passes
From what prevalent opinion of Henderson is on this website, many of you will be surprised with what you find.
Devery is NOT
the leader in dropped passes. It's a tie between Braylon Edwards and Dallas Clark with 12 each. Devery has 10, which is the same amount as T.O. Which is one more than Randy Moss and two more than Steve Smith.
My point is that if anybody says that Devery has the most dropped balls in the NFL, they don't know twhat they are talking about. Furthermore, the stat can be misleading in that somebody who is universally considered to be a "good hands" guy (Randy Moss) only has one less drop than Devery.
That's my $.02. This rant was sponsored by Boredom.
