Why Does Big Ben Ever Throw it To Diontae Johnson?

Written by Noah Gagnon

I’m not a Steelers fan, I’m not a Steelers bettor, I don’t have any Steelers wideouts on my fantasy team and Dionte Johnson still enrages me. Never in my life have I seen a player so inclined to drop passes as Johnson. The guy drops everything!!!

Don’t believe me? Dionte Johnson leads the league in drops with 9. But, if you know anything about the NFL’s drop statistics you should know that they’re very lenient in terms of ruling something a drop. Essentially a ball has to literally fall to the floor after hitting a receiver square in the palms, when said receiver has a 20-yard radius of space around him to be ruled a drop. So basically Dionte Johnson’s 9 drops are equivalent to about 87 actual drops.

I’m surprised Tomlin hasn’t chained this dude up in a dungeon underneath Heinz field yet, but if they lose today Dionte should book the quickest flight out of Pittsburgh immediately.
