Broncos’ Demaryius Thomas caught his annual case of the dropsies

Demaryius Thomas needs to see someone about his seasonal football allergy.

The Broncos' star wideout is dropping passes at an alarming rate to start his season again. He already has five foibles in the last six weeks.

“I’ve got to figure something out,” Thomas told ESPN's Jeff Legwold.” I ain’t playing my best right now. I take the blame for that.’’

Thomas let five passes slip through his fingers in the Broncos' first three games. And on Sunday against Cleveland, he let passes four and five hit the turf.

The fifth one — a fourth quarter drop with the teams angling for overtime — was particularly deflating.

“Knowing I should keep my eyes on the ball as a receiver, it happens, it happens,” Thomas said. “They were just too easy to have the drops. Both of them, I take the blame. I’ve got to be better.’’

Thomas famously caught 250 passes in a practice to remedy last season's drops. Perhaps a return to the JUGS machine in the bye week can cure his woes.
