If he can earn a few compliments from his father, a former NFL safety, then he'll know he's really getting somewhere.
Stills talks with his father a couple times a week, and when they spoke after the rookie's preseason debut against Kansas City, the focus wasn't on his leaping 22-yard catch or the pass-interference penalty he drew by outracing his defender deep down field.
It was on a deep pass from Brees that he dropped.
"He wasn't very pleased with my performance," Stills said of his father. "That's just him being tough on me and I wasn't very pleased with it, either, so you can see where that comes from."
The elder Kenny Stills told his son that "it's unacceptable to drop a ball and I'm lucky I still have a few more opportunities to continue to prove myself — and make sure I'm catching everything," the younger Stills recalled.(Shreveport Times)
