Two of Toilolo’s three drops against the Bears would have gained enough yards for first downs if he’d made the catches. The game was already decided when Toilolo had his third drop on a short pass in the final two minutes.
Toilolo showed sure hands for the Falcons as a rookie last season with no drops and 11 receptions in 14 targets with two touchdowns. He said his issues with drops are mental.
“You hear it a lot: ‘One play at a time and you’ve got to move on when bad things happen,’” Toilolo said. “My expectations for myself and the standards I have for myself, when I make one mistake one thing I’m working on is moving past that and worry about making plays going forward. Trusting my ability and having that confidence I think is key, especially at this level.”
