Consequences of dropped passes

    Dropped passes have been a problem for the Titans through their first two preseason games.

    But the consequences of those actions are different based on just which player is making the mistakes.

    For a wide receiver like Kenny Britt, a former first-round draft pick who’s entering his fifth season in the league, the downside of drops – if they continue — is that he might see himself temporarily slide down the depth chart.

    “We have enough depth where we’ll put someone else in at some point,” Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said Tuesday. “You can’t continue to make mistakes and drop balls. I’m not saying we’re going to demote anyone at this point, but we’re deep enough where the reality is that it can start happening.”

    For an undrafted tight end like Jack Doyle, who dropped what should have been a completion for a first down early in last Saturday’s preseason loss to Cincinnati, the consequences can be far more serious.

    Doyle is simply trying to win a roster spot, and since he doesn’t have the pedigree or the proven talent of a player like Britt, every mistake is magnified.

    “I think Jack Doyle to this point has kind of been the guy that’s been the sleeper of camp, that’s done a really good job battling for a roster spot,” Loggains said. “I’ve been really pleased with him. The disappointing thing is when you drop a ball on third down and you’re playing with (the first team) and you’re an undrafted free agent.

    “He’s a guy you’ll give a second chance to, to see how he responds to it. But when you’re given the opportunity, it doesn’t matter what you’ve done in practice. It’s a production-based business and if you drop balls under the lights, it’s going to stand out.”

    the consequences of a dropped pass should be 100 reps on the juggs machine for every 1 dropped pass.

    Delanie Walker is back and the first thing the media mentioned was his stone hands.Then we have Kenny Britt dropping passes.Jack Doyle drops what should've been an easy first down.

    I do hope once the regular season starts that we don't have these guys dropping passes in key situations.If Jake puts the ball on the money it won't be his fault.

    Upside is how Nate and Damien have been playing. No drops and making really tough catches. If there continues to be drops I can see D Willy getting some playing time and making the most of it. He's looked really good so far.
