    Way to go Decker!

    Decker might be de-selected from that team if he keeps dropping balls like he has.

    Yeah he has had 4 or 5 the last few weeks. I’m sure he will get it together though.

    he had one bad game Paradismo, give him a break.

    He’s had more than that.  He drops too much, but I’m hoping he improves.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love Decker but he has had way too many drops the last two games.

    I can forgive Decker for the drops, but getting highlighted for his sound fundamentals at the same time is a little much, no?  Like everything else about this team, the dropped passes are just inexplicable and weird all-around.  Why the heck are they happening?  Everything else about the team seems to say “over-achieving.”  Perversely, it’s like our wideouts are so surprised by an accurate Tebow pass early in the game that they just can’t catch it.
