Eureka! I figured out what is wrong with Lafell

Smith has more drops than LaFell, neither are one per game.  There's nothing wrong with LaFell, he's doing fine. No team has five megatrons.

Compare smith at 4 years in the league to lafell.


All im saying is hand size may help but its not there determining factor in drops.


Why would I compare a decent 2 to arguably the best WR in the game? Of course 89 is gonna blow him out of the water.....that doesn't make LaFell bad

Small hands were the knock on him coming out of the draft.  They didn't call him "LaDrops" at LSU for nothing.  He's a hell of a run blocker though and that's why the Panthers drafted him.

Becuase the original post was about hand size being the reason for lafells drops.

Then you said "well, Smith drops balls also"

So I was stating if you would watch 89 in his prime he didnt drop much with marginally smaller hands.


Got it? Glad I could clear that up for ya.

Why bother with these guys? I find it funny that some folks will rail against a Panther Player that does everything asked of him. Just because he isn't a #1 they get all upset when he drops a pass. I guess Panther Players are supposed to be perfect on the field like they are in Madden.

You are wasting your time trying to dissuade these kids. They think Madden is as real as it gets.

All you have to do us adjust his player rating and poof, he is a #1.

Smith's a fantastic WR but he had drops from his first real action in 02 on to today.  Things happen.  Receivers aren't perfect and Brandon LaFell isn't what's bringing this offense down.  He's our third best option and he isn't going to need to be perfect.

I've been watching Lafell for about 4 years now and almost in every game he has a key drop. Then I started asking myself, what is keeping a big 6'2 tall WR with all the measurable, who is been in the same system for 4 years, from achieving consistency. Then, I got this number: 8 3/4. What is this number? That's Lafell's hand size. For a guy his size, his hand size should be around 9 1/2 on the small side for an athlete. What is Dez Bryant's hand size, for example? 9 3/4. Notice the difference in performance? So, what you have here is a big dude with tiny little hands trying to catch a big ass football. In short, the odds are against him from ever becoming a respectable WR. Serviceable? Yes.


Olsen has quite a few drops. What is his hand size. Maybe we should be looking to upgrade him as well.

Crappy thread. Didn't need another thread on this topic. Plenty of space in the other Lafell threads.

Kids. Ya gotta love em'. I think it is a rule, isn't it?

What the fuck are either of you talking about?


Try reading the posts.


I havent said a word about lafell being a bad reciever, simply stated the size of the hands dont matter.



Jesus.
