    Guess who leads the AFC North in drops?

    If you asked me who leads the AFC North in dropped passes, my three guesses would've been: Mike Wallace, Mike Wallace and Mike Wallace. Well, I was wrong.

    According to ESPN Stats & Information, Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green tops the division in that category. This shocked me because Green has such great hands. Everyone remembers Green's drop in the red zone against Dallas, but I can't recall many more than that one. Last season, Green had three drops on 112 targets. This year, he has seven drops on 138 targets.

    Wallace is close behind Green with six dropped passes. That's tied for the second-most in the AFC North with Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham and Browns wide receiver Greg Little. Saints tight end Jimmy Graham leads the NFL with 11 dropped passes.

    In terms of teams, the Browns lead the division with 26 drops, which is tied for eighth-most in the league. The Steelers and Bengals have a total of 22 drops. The Ravens have the least amount of dropped passes with 19. Wide receiver Torrey Smith has the most drops for Baltimore with four.

    This came as a surprise to me,guess I need to step and clear my head. I'm sure no one on the Bengals fan base is hoping AJ Green takes a hike.

    AJ Green had problems with dropped passes last year too. He's got a chance to be one of the best receivers in the game but he has to work on his consistency. Much like Wallace, he has all the talent in the world, but unlike Wallace, AJG isn't afraid to go up and consistently put forth the effort to make the tough catch.

    Thats because he's like what 6'4 ... Wallace is what 6' ...AJ Green is one of the elite talents at WR , and he's a jump ball spectacular catch receiver ... Wallace is a speed receiver

    so lets see ... Wallace is running full speed down field with his 4.2-4.3 speed ... and the ball isn't perfect , do you know how hard it must be to adjust to a ball when your running full speed (and have the Dbs toasted) with 4.2-4.3 speed ... over the head catches are the hardest to make , let alone running at 4.2-4.3 speed trying to find the ball and then adjust to it and then catch it ... that's a hard task , if you ask me ... none of the other big name receivers are this kind of receiver , if you like or not he's the best at this type of receiver

    AJ Green , Calvin Johnson , and so on... while they might be deceptively fast , they are not Sprinter like speed ... and they are all also like 6'4 ... which gives the QB the ability to kind of just throw it up , and give the receiver time to locate it so they can use their height and jumping ability over the DB

    at least that's my 2 cents take it how you want

    Wallace leads the league in most uninspired play. No excuse for that.

    Hines Ward wasn't the biggest, or the fastest. But he came to play everyday. And I"ll take Ward in his prime over Wallace in his prime (sissy) everyday of the week.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    This. There is more to playing WR then just 4.2 speed. Gzzzz. Some of you really don't know football.
