    I think his regression was quite obvious to a lot of people. His speed was different as well as his difficulty in catchng the football. They don't mention that in this article. He had a few drops.

    Berrian has proven he could be productive. This wasn't a good year for him but it wasn't bad either. Just not what we expected of him.

    Hopefully he comes back 100% and doesn't re-injure his hammy again. Seems to be his forte as it happened in 2008 too.

    Hmmmm, tied for 63rd with 3 dropped passes. That doesn't seem like to many to me.

    He also had one pass for 99 yards last season... that will distort the YPC a bit.

    29 of his passes caught this year were from 1-10 yds. Last year it was about split between 1-10 and 11-21.

    then that stat is not right. I know he had at least three drops in one game, can't remember which one, but it was a bad game for him. he tipped up Favre's interception, which would be a drop. Its gotta be at least 4.


    However, there is no curious case.

    Berrian
    a) was injured all preseason, so he never got in a groove with Favre like the other guys did. When he came back, they were out of sync, and he wasn't used to catching Favre's passes. Later on, when they were more comfortable with each other, they did fairly well. He was making nice catches and good gains.

    b) he's being used differently. Last year he went deep, or took a short pass the distance. This season he was used as a posession guy, which he is not. I saw him in there on fade routes in the endzone, hooks, outs, etc. Things he doesn't excel at.

    Its not like he's a bad receiver, he had an off year. It happens. I'm not worried at all.

    Re:The curious case of Bernard Berrian

    Interesting read, thanks. I don't think Berrian is so bad, just never thought he was even close to a #1 receiver, which is what I believe they thought he would be (paying that much for him).

    That hammy injury hurt him badly...those things have a way of lasting much longer than you might think. If I recall, he was one of the most vocal in trying to get Favre here. Without the injury to slow him down, I'm sure we would have seen more "go routes" to him this past season.

    I know he had more than 3 drops. I don't care what that site says. I'm not a Berrian hater or anything.

    Re:The curious case of Bernard Berrian

    Reasons for Berrian's decreasing production


    He needs Bobby Wade and Gus Frerotte with him to stand out

    Will Smith hasn't tought him any new moves in 2009

    Too much starch in his pants, chafing made every yard hurt

    Thought he was Randy Moss and took some plays off

    Partying with Bryant McKinnie makes you slow off the ball

    Rattled by continuously hearing Brett Favre/Greg Lewis TD as called by Paul Allen being replayed everywhere he looks. Thought Frerotte/Berrian 99 yard TD was better.
