Oakland Raiders Recievers Have Hands of Stone

Last year, it's no secret the Raiders offense, especially the passing offense, was horrible.
Many fans have attributed that to JaMarcus Russell's play and Darius Heyward-Bey's inability to catch the ball.
But fact of the matter is it cannot all be blamed on JaMarcus and Hayward-Bey. There were other players who struggled and other receivers who had trouble catching the ball.
The Raiders receivers dropped balls regardless of who was at QB, but even with that said QB play is no excuse for a receiver dropping the ball.
Take a look at the Raiders' receivers by the numbers. For reference I will also include Dwayne Bowe who led the league in drops as well as Terrell Owens who is infamous for dropping passes to show how our recievers stack up against the "worst" hands in the league:
Dwayne Bowe- 70 receptions, 995 yards, 5 TDs, 11 drops.
Terrell Owens- 55 receptions, 829 yards, 5 TDs, 9 drops
Louis Murphy- 34 receptions, 521 yards, 4 TDs, 9 drops
