    Arnaud

    I think WR's will do a better job catching Arnaud's Passes in the future as they get used to his velocity and not having to adjust to different QB's. Does my point have merit or am I way off base?

    Could be. I don't think most of these guys have caught balls from a guy who tosses them that hard (so to speak).

    I do wish, sometimes, that Arnaud would put a little more "touch" on the ball, instead of "Favre"ing or "Elway"ing it in there, though there is certainly a time and a place for that (last TD vs UNLV for example).

    Though I wouldn't be at all upset if he turned into Favre or Elway....

    Re: Arnaud

    I'd usually expect that to be resolved by about halftime of game one.

    They practice together for weeks before. Spring ball. There really shouldn't be anything to surprising going on out there

    I've noticed AA tends to throw high, or let the ball float. Combine that with young WRs adjusting to the size and speed of D1 football - and might be hearing some footsteps. And just your basic adrenaline of running before catching. That's where the drops happen IMO.

    Two QBs has some merit. Although there's only really been one for about a month.

    Re: Arnaud

    Frankly, I do not want to see a dropped pass on Saturay. We have too many receivers to let a klutz catch the big one.

    Re: Arnaud

    I think he especially does this when he's nervous.

    When he'd take snaps last year, he did this often. Also, it happened in OT against UNLV, 1st half against Baylor, and in the 4th quarter (after onside kick recovery) against Kansas.

    I just think Arnuad needs to settle down a bit. The WRs are also dropping some catchable balls (perhaps they do that when they're nervous too?).

    With experience, I'd expect these types of issues to work itself out

    Re: Arnaud

    AA cant do anything about dropped balls, all WR's drop them, look at the most overrated player in the NFL "T.O." leads the league in drops every year.... Only time and reps will help AA and the recieving corps see less and less drops and more and more WINS! :)

    I wouldn't mind a dropped pass at all, if there were, say, thirty other completions, a hundred yard rusher, and we won by twenty.
