This post is not intended to continue any Randy Edsall bashing. I have a legit question about coaching WRs and whether focus there can translate into immediate improvement in the fortunes of the MD FB team in 2012.
Last year the WR play was at times terrible and pretty much every WR had serious butterfingers and was inconsistent at best. I expected far more from Ronnie Tyler (he did have that great bowl game performance...as a freshman) and company. We went through a similar period during the 5-6 seasons under RF which resulted in recruits like DHB and such joining the team. We have some highly touted recruits joining the team. However it SEEMS to me (and I may be wrong and thus invite your insights) that reducing the drops is a coachable and correctable issue. I assume its harder to correct once the season starts and practice time is limited, but was wondering if anyone had any knowledge - anecdotal or statistical - that could point to how this single issue could be addressed effectively by the coaching staff.
Both DOB's and CJB's QB ratings would be substantially higher if the WR could hold on to most of the passes that hit them in the hands. My recollection is that many of both of their mistakes happened after WR drop(s).
