He makes more clutch catches than he doesn't. ...I'm not sure we can evaluate a whole lot from what's going on in DET. All we know is that Calvin's not human.
I can name a few times Petti has missed HUGE catches. Last year, was it the Bears game that he dropped a key 3rd or 4th down, and cost them the game? One of the Turkey Bowl games, this year or last year, he had a huge drop, and there was another game 2 years ago that he cost them the game on 4th and 2. Clutch? I'm not so sure. And Petti as a 1st round pick really hasn't gotten the value many of us expected out of him, including myself.
