After another dropped pass by tight end Ed Dickson Sunday against the Bills that led to one of quarterback Joe Flacco’s five interceptions, Ravens coach John Harbaugh called out the fourth-year tight end, who had 54 catches for 528 yards and five touchdowns in 2011.

Dickson has just three receptions for 25 yards through four games, and he’s had at least six dropped passes, according to The Baltimore Sun.

“That’s a long time ago, so I’m hard pressed to make that direct comparison,” Harbaugh said Monday of Dickson’s 2011 season. “The stats kind of speak for themselves as you’re alluding to. He’s not the same player right now than he was then obviously. Ed just needs to go catch the ball. Make it easy: Run fast, get open and catch the football, put it away and get upfield.

“That’s all he needs to do. And if he’s thinking about anything besides that, he’s doing himself a disservice. And if he’s lacking confidence for some reason, that’s on him. When you have that kind of talent, those kinds of gifts, go play ball, go show everybody what you’re capable of doing. That’s what I expect to see from Ed.”
