With all the hoopla over Andrew Luck's rookie season, it's easy to forget that it could have been much, much better than it was.

Kyle Rodriguez of Colts Authority has five-year data on drop rate for the Indianapolis Colts and found that the 2012 Colts were particularly bad at hanging on to the football.

Indy had two receivers ranking near the bottom of the league in drops. Donnie Avery and T.Y. Hilton both rang up double-digit drops, tying for 79th in drop percentage in the league.

Whereas Hilton atoned for his mistakes with scores of big plays, Avery compounded his failings with an inability to get open.
