I'm seriously tired of all his damn drops this yr! He avgs like 3 drops a game & atleast one is for a TD!!!
If your not 1st your last!
we have those funky cardinal and gold gloves.
get him some black!!
He didn't have that much of a problem with drops today. Considering he has to actually extend his arms out far enough to touch the ball before be drops it.
He flat out dropped a touchdown on that fade on the second to last drive. Went right thru his hands.
LMAO @ the Bruin fan using the word "we" on a USC board
He's good for one of those a game....but he's still the best WR in college football.
Where's that sorry a$$ simpleton that called me an asshat for correctly pointing out that Lee's been dropping passes and that his hands would be rightfully considered suspect if he continued? Never listen to homers try to discuss football. They will ignore the obvious and pretend everything is copacetic no matter what the facts are. Lee is still a baller and an incredible athlete, but he's got issues with his hands whether folks want to admit it or not.
I would partially agree with this, but is hard to classify a guy as having suspect hands when he fully extends to catch the tipped pass for a TD, and almost in the next play, drops an easy one.
I'm wondering if it's a concentration issue since he hasn't been playing WR all that long.
Perhaps someone else can refresh my memory, but I don't remember hardly any easy drops from him last year.
The one pass, where he didn't extend his arms to catch the ball...looked like he misjudged it...had nothing to do with the gloves...I think he may need to get his eyes checked...there have been a few of them this year where it seems as though he has lost sight of the ball before it gets to him... jmho...

"It's what a brother would do for another brother"
It's funny you say that. When I look at him I sometimes think the same thing. I want to start off by saying I don't like bashing our players and am extremely happy to have Lee on the team but I sometimes think he more concerned with after the catch then the catch itself. He sometimes scares me when he catches the ball at the 1st down marker and then runs back trying to break something big. So far he's made it back each time and hasn't caused us but one day it might. You got to catch the ball before you run and sometimes just get enough to continue the drive. I'm sure the coaches are on top of it all and are happy with his play as am I. A little more time and he will be one of the best but right now I don't think he's even the best Receiver on this team.
On the pass where he didn't fully extend his arms the Washington CB had grabbed his facemask right before his break on the ball which screwed up his vision and his timing.
Cry Havoc; and let slip the dogs of war!
T.O. is the second best receiver in NFL history, maybe a different player would have been appropriate.
I don't mean it as an insult but he sometimes actually looks( not acts) like T.O to me at certain times or camera angles. I guess I should have worded it differently. I wish Lee all the success and more then T.O. I personally will say this though, as great a talent as T.O is I can't stand his actions or personality and I hope no player acts the way he does. I personally don't like selfish players and in my opinion T.O is one of the worst players in that regard.
Interesting point. I was listening to Marqise on the pregame radio show, and he's clearly more bummed by his two drops than his many successes this season.
Really sounds like a nice kid who is dedicated to getting better instead of resting on his laurels and letting the success go to his head. One way or another, he'll figure it out. Guys like that always do.
It didn't go through his hands. He didnt extend his arms far enough to catch it, made and abnormal short arm motion. He has also had at least two bombs go right threw his hands and hit him in the face mask. It is really very strange. I'm wondering if he needs to get his vision checked out.
Calling Tee Martin to step up and coach!
You're right broadcaster...he's a great kid and will figure it out...
