Clayton At The Bottom Of The Pack

December 10th, 2009

Now the folks at BSPN are pretty good when it comes to stats.

They’ve got rooms full of young gremlins charting everything one could imagine. Many of these gremlins are naughty interns, but that’s another story.

Pat “Vacation Man” Yasinskas, of BSPN, their resident NFC South reporter, tapped the stats gremlins to get their data on wide receiver production in the division.

Guess who’s bringing up the rear. That would be Michael Clayton.

This comes from ESPN’s Stats & Information. Out of 109 receivers charted by our stats people, Meachem ranks No. 6 in the league with a 76.3 catch percentage. What that means is Meachem has been targeted 38 times and has 29 catches. He also doesn’t have a drop this season.

That’s by far the best catch percentage in the NFC South. Here’s a list of the NFC South receivers on that list:

Hands Team

Receiver Targets Catches Drops Percentage
Robert Meachem 38 29 0 76.3
Devery Henderson 59 40 3 67.8
Marques Colston 80 50 5 62.5
Michael Jenkins 65 40 4 61.5
Muhsin Muhammad 64 38 2 59.4
Maurice Stovall 33 18 0 54.5
Roddy White 124 65 4 52.4
Sammie Stroughter 52 27 2 51.9
Steve Smith 100 49 4 49.0
Dwayne Jarrett 25 12 0 48.0
Antonio Bryant 58 27 5 46.6
Michael Clayton 43 14 4 32.6

A news lowlight during a quiet Wednesday at One Buc Place yesterday was Clayton telling the media he’s hopeful about returning from his knee injury on Sunday against the New York Jets.

Please, Michael, take your time. We’ll be OK without you.

    I don’t know if that isd the “official” dropped pass number or what, but it is WRONG. I have seen Clayton drop ALOT more than that.
