I'd like to hear from someone with a bit more experience insight on the issue of Greg Little, a correct-me-if-I'm-wrong, if you will.
I spent a fair amount of time cursing Little for his drops last night, especially the one at the goal line. But there's still this nagging little voice in the back of my head that says he wouldn't have so many drops if he wasn't being targeted so much. And he wouldn't be targeted so much if he didn't get open so often. And therein to me lies the point for consideration.
The way I see it (and this is the part that may deserve correction) getting open is not only the hardest part, it's the part that some guys who know all they need to know to execute just can't get down because they don't have the physical skills. Little seems to have the physical and mental skills for that part of the play. However, as we all know, he isn't very good (sucks butt) at the actual catching part. It seems to me that the catching is the most teachable part of the entire evolution.
A guy with good hands but who can't separate because he lacks the physical ability (Robiskie?) is pretty damned worthless. Whereas a guy who can get open is worth investing some time in to teach him that last critical step. So while I will continue to curse Little for his drops, I'm for keeping him around and working on learning that last step in the execution of the play.
