Rob Moore on his receivers' struggles in Oakland: 'I’m accountable for that'

MooreNASHVILLE, Tenn. – There is no indisputable way to count drops.

Many receivers will say if a pass touches their hands they should catch it.

But a leaping touch of an overthrow is hardly the same as a drop of a pass that hits an open guy in the numbers.

By different counts, the Raiders had a lot of drops last season. According to STATS, Oakland’s 28 drops were the fourth-most in the NFL.

In different spots I’ve seen Michael Crabtree credited with nine and with five, Amari Cooper charged with five and three and Seth Roberts assigned five.

Those receivers are most accountable for their deficiencies. But second in line is the guy expected to coach them out of problems, and that was Rob Moore.

After three years coaching receivers in Oakland, Moore is the Titans’ new receivers coach.
