    He's a bit of a spaz as athletes go. Maybe that is why he was tripped by a field snake.
    He's seems helter skelter with the ball in his hand.

    88 and the Tight Ends do a good job of running the route far enough, catching the ball and getting DOWN when surrounded, running the clock, eliminating the strip, getting the first down and frustrating the defense in the process. Decker will try to dupe the group and get twisted up, held up and runs the risk of stripage.
    To be fair, Decker is the one with 0 fumbles, and DT with 3 lol

    Interestingly, both Decker and DT are in the top 10 for drop-rates among WRs (although I don't recall DT dropping any balls in a long time now)

    Take with a table spoon of salt as drops tend to be very subjective (according to some people, some players have 4 drops a game)

    He has just as many TDs as DT and only 13 less catches. DT has a lot more yards mostly because he runs deeper routes typically. He is better at YAC. Decker seems to have more of a quiet but good game week in and week out. I will say that he had a weak game against TB yesterday but that's one game of 12 so far. He is having a fine season and should do nothing but get better as he is still a young player.

    Decker is not a yardage guy, he is a possession guy to move the chains and a red zone TD guy.

    I dont care how much he has played outside, he reminds me of a Collie without the concussions that could move the chains with crossing routes in the slot, IMO, and catches TDs with well designed plays in the red zone.

    Mm that is debatable, at this point in the season I see tamme as a better number 2 option. He is that reliable third down machine everyone expected decker to be

    Who would double Eric decker? He is a inconsistent wr who for some reason only catches half the passes thrown at him and can't catch the deep pass. DT is the one being double teamed

    I like Decker he's a very good number 2. He's a great route runner with sneaky speed.

    Since he's figured the difference between stick-um and butter(and that he's not playing baseball), he's been great. B+/A-

    People are too concerned about dropped balls.

    Hooray, beer!

    It's more of a concern when one becomes older.

    Duluth Trading Company to the rescue.

    I think it's a concern when added to the other execution issues like run blocking and penalties. I know it seems as though the offense has been prolific, but we do have too many 3 and outs, especially early.

    No I completely agree that the offense has been laggy and we're having major execution issues. Dropped balls can become a concern but right now that's a problem that most teams would sign up for if they were in our position.
    I think most teams would choose the flaws that this Broncos team has if they were asked to choose.

    We've got some bigger issues than dropped balls is all I'm saying.

    Hooray, beer!

    Honestly I'd rather have Blair White over Decker right now. But that's the emotional fan in me that can't stand Decker's drops.

    Thomas elevated his game, it's your turn salt.
