    Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains’ definition of a dropped pass doesn’t leave his wide receivers much room for error.

    “If you get a hand on the ball (and don’t catch it), that’s a drop,” Loggains said Thursday. “Our expectations for these guys are very high. Especially if you get two hands on the ball, you should catch every ball. We’re good enough at that position and deep enough that we should be making those plays.”

    By Loggains’ estimate, the Titans had seven dropped passes in last week’s win over the San Diego Chargers, and he believes the drops are one of the big reasons why the team has struggled in the red zone through three games.

    The Titans have scored touchdowns on just four-of-nine trips into the red zone, and that 44.4 percent success rate is tied for 24th in the NFL.

    “The number one thing that’s holding this offense back is dropped balls and penalties,” Loggains said. “That’s stuff we control ourselves. We had seven dropped balls which (would have been) six explosive plays, and four penalties at critical times in games. We have to eliminate that stuff.”

    Well... Hold on. I think it'll come back to 3-4. He was targeted 5 times. One pass was lockers fault. Britt didn't have separation on his curl. Locker threw it low to try and squeeze it in. Then if you wanna count the neck breaker play... That's 3. But yea at least 3. Arguably 4

    il give him a pass on those two, both difficult to catch. The first pass thrown at him tho really ticked me off and no pass on that as well as the penalties.

    The stat sheet says he dropped 2. Depends how you define your drop. Some people like Loggains feel if you have any hand on the ball, that is a drop. The stat sheet says 2 because I think they are thinking on blatant drops.

    I think we can argue for about 3 or 4. Dropping on his neck is a bit hard to say as I think most WRs would drop the ball on that type of impact.

    I agree, the first pass was what bothered me the most and the penalties.

    Yeah, the first pass is the one real one where everyone should catch 10 out of 10. Not sure what is wrong with him, maybe he is just not focus right now. Who knows but this guy can take a game and dominate if he puts everything out the window and just play football. If he is on the team, that is all we can hope for. We'll see what happens as the season goes on.

    I find it really sad that this guy has all the potential in the world to be a really good wide out and a few times he has gotten injured which isn't his fault. His off the field incidents need to stop, I do wish he would mature both on and off the field. It just looks like he throwing his career down the drain this year when he can still ball out. Only time will tell
