When Braylon Edwards(notes) was streaking down the sideline toward a perfect Mark Sanchez(notes) pass in the second quarter of the AFC Championship the same thought had to have run through everyone's mind: don't drop it. The NFL's most notorious pass dropper didn't. But he darn sure tried.
The picture above is pretty much a blueprint on how not to catch a football: His eyes are off the ball, his hands are up near his shoulders and the ball is on his fingertips. You could almost feel the anxiety as the ball fell into his arms and he began his 40-yard sprint for the end zone. Braylon Edwards got away with it this time. Maybe that will make next time a little easier.
