Catch the ball. Grading the receivers in the passing game.

*DISCLAIMER* The following stats were compiled from second half performance only.  I was unable to watch the first half. *END DISCLAIMER*

Both Matt Cassel and the receivers played an excellent second half. There were absolutely no drops and the receivers made the most of every opportunity they were given.  I am happy to have seen that as far as the second half is concerned there were relatively no mistakes made by the receivers as far as the passing game goes.

Dwayne Bowe was thrown to 8 times in the second half. He managed to catch 5 of the 8, one of three misses was off target and the other two were swatted away. I think we all know by now that he also made the best play of the Chief's season so far with his second TD catch of the game.

Final grade- A++

Steve Breaston was targeted only once in the second half and he caught it for the game winning touchdown.

Final grade- A+

Jackie Battle and Keary Colbert were both targeted twice and caught each throw. However, Colbert did fumble once after his catch.

Final grade- A for Battle and B+ for Colbert.

Thomas Jones and Terrance Copper were targeted once and they both caught their target.

Final grade- A for both.

 

The main thing to take away from the receivers second half performance yesterday was 0 dropped passes. This is very encouraging because there isn't much that is worse than watching a well thrown ball being dropped by the receiver. Colbert's fumble maybe a cause for some to be concerned but as long as he works on that in practice I wouldn't be too worried about it.
