Yup that's what me and my brother call him all the time LOL.
exactly...who the fvck complains about the best WR in the game. And on top of that makes up stats like 3 drops a game. He's dropped passes and is still the best WR. He's young, he'll figure it out but to start a thread bashing him classless.

I wonder if Woods has a vision problem to then.
That's funny, I haven't seen Robert Woods' name mentioned once on here
In all seriousness, you take the good with the bad and the minimal harm of a brain fart or two per game from Marqise is dramatically outweighed by what he brings to the table as a game breaker.
Aww someone got mad...
I'm a Lee fan but let's call it how it is, dudes hands are suspect & does drop like 3 balls a game! Ppl can call it lack of concentration or whatever, point is, if it hits ur hands YOU CATCH IT!
& me being a Bruin fan also has nothin to do with it
If your not 1st your last!
I get what ur saying in regards to Lee but its frustrating to watch! To be honest the offense as a whole has been frustrating to watch but Lee's drops just get to me more than anything
Actually, it has been one or two per game this season. Last season not as many. Has to do with concentration and the coverage being allowed to handle the receivers without PI being called. Definitely not averaging 3/game as you suggest. One slant and one long pass that could have been a TD if he extends to the ball..short armed it. That one he got caught up with his face mask being held by the defender at his break and simply lost concentration and misjudged where the ball was.
He makes some very difficult catches look easy and some easier looking ones look tough, but he definitely has a great pair of hands. Great, sure handed receivers do drop balls that hit them in the hands or chest or face mask as most everyone has seen from time to time. No different with Lee this year, just a few more than were expected due to his breakout last year.
Tommy, Rebel, and our newest rescue Harley!
Um, why would I be mad because of your ignorance. You are the who looks stupid, not me brother haha. And btw I love your line "if it hits ur hands YOU CATCH IT!" Is that what you did when you played WR at Lee's level?... That was too easy.
I thought it was 3 and a dropped TD per game? At least according to your OP
1st off what part of LIKE 3 do u not understand?? Did I say he drops exactly 3 balls per game?? On avg, Lee drops LIKE 3 balls per game!!! & he has has dropped about 4-6 potential TDs this season, 3-4 that were for sure TDs & a couple others which he could've scored on due to his after the catch ability...
Jus so u know it doesn't matter what level of football I played up to or anyone else for that matter, if the ball hits ur hands YOU CATCH IT plain & simple! Can't say nice try cuz ur lil smart ass response was wack!
"It's what a brother would do for another brother"
I am sure I will get some flack for this but if/when Lee drops a pass which clearly should have been caught, I would like to see Kiffin sit him down for a quarter. 1. It would send a message to the team that no player's job is secure; 2. it may just give Marqise something to think about while he is sitting and get him to focus a little more. 3. It would give the coaches an opportunity to see one of the other highly recruited and talented WRs who are sitting on the bench an opportunity to play.
I think Lee may be the most dynamic wide out in SC history by the time he leaves here but there is no denying he has dropped TD passes in each of the last 3 games.
I wouldn't say a qtr but definitely a series! He used to bench the RBs for pretty much the entire season, jus ask DJ...
Hate to have to point out the obvious here............but not catching a pass is hardly the same as fumbling the ball.
Still not sure how changing gloves improves the focus either.
I feel you, but one could make the argument that if a guy is dropping passes that are killing drives, he's in essence causing a turnover, which is the same as a fumble. What's worse, a RB fumbling once or a receiver dropping 3 passes that would have been first downs during third down situations that eventually lead to three punts?
Barkley is connecting on 70% of his passes to Lee. That is REALLY good and better than any other WR, TE or RB on the team right now. If Lee has to sit for dropping a few balls, then everyone needs to sit. Heck, you might as well sit Barkley for missing on a few throws.
Winning winners who win > whining whiners who whine.
Nah, Baby T.O. is Keenan Allen.
Marqise reminds me more of Jimmy Smith, the former Jaguars WR.
What's better, giving the opposing team the ball at the line of scrimmage, or punting it to them?
Nah, Lee is Baby T.O.
Obviously punting. That's why in my example I used 3 drops vs 1 fumble. I'm sure you got my point though. Drops and fumbles are drive killers, but don't discount drops and and act as if fumbles are the kiss of death. Drops can be just as devastating in certain situations. This isn't solely about Lee's situation, but just speaking in general terms.

It is hard to fault him for his hands, since he was like Velcro last year.
However, you are right this year, he has struggled with a serious case of "the drops." I would not be surprised to see Barkley look to Agholor and Woods more often.
By my math, Barkley's completion percentage and passer rating when targeting each receiver:
Lee: 70% completion percentage and 170 passer rating
Woods: 61% and 130
Agholor: 57% and 110
I don't see Barkley looking away from Lee in favor of Agholor anytime soon.
Ok obviously insinuating that the gloves were a problem wasn't sarcastic enough for folks on here! I know, especially from experience, that "gloves" aren't the deciding factor on dropped balls... It's all about having the ability to catch the ball 1st & foremost, which we all know he can but most importantly concentration, which some ppl have pointed out already! He's too worried about what he's gonna do after the catch that he's taking his eyes away from the ball before securing it (looking it in)
