That still doesn't make his drops acceptable.
He has been running free, without a defender close, and the pass from Manning bounces off his hands. Some of those plays have been third downs that he should have converted, which makes it significantly worse. Simply unacceptable to drop wide open passes. If it hits you in the hands, you catch it.
