Dropped passes are something that have affected the Packers all year, however they became more noticeable when they contributed to the first loss of the season. While Jermichael Finley has been the scapegoat, he is certainly not the only player having trouble catching the football.
The dropped passes are extremely irritating because catching the football is such a basic fundamental of the game. Aaron Rodgers usually puts the ball right on the money, but the drops still occur.
The Packers have such an explosive offense and receivers get open downfield in a hurry, which is why they are such a threat. However, they can't continue to drop the football, especially on crucial third down plays.
The drops also damage momentum and rhythm that the offense has, and we saw that on the Packers second drive against the Bears.
Come playoff time, the receivers really need to start capitalizing on these opportunities and take some pressure of Rodgers.
