The statistical analysis site tracked how many times a player was the target of a pass and how many times they made the catch. According to Football Outsiders’ stats, the fluctuation from one year to the next was high in their “drop rate” category, but Rice led all receivers over the last two years, dropping just 1.3 percent of the passes in which he was targeted. Free-agent running back Brian Westbrook led all backs at 0.9 percent

Nah, Rice could always catch, he just didn't have the ball thrown at him as much in the before Favre days. The after Favre era allows us to see the players for what they can be.

I guess that happens when you go from a run first, run second, run third team into a chuck it all over the field team.

Nonetheless, he still had a pretty good catch vs drop ratio even though he wasn't catching the ball every offensive play.

I think you mean:

I guess that happens when you go from a rookie, third option in a run first option, to being injured most of the year to being the #1 guy in a passing offense.

Of course having a good quarterback helps speed that development along.

Of course having a good WR who can carry a quarterback along to speed up his development and keep him from throwing a bunch of INT's.
