Before Alex's injury we were 9th in pass attempts (right now we're 13th). Under Alex Smith Denver might have had 3 or 4 more pass attempts a game. Our leading receiver doesn't have half the yards Lloyd does. It goes beyond pass attempts.

Lloyd's finally found a coach who looked past his timed speed and see's that he does have the ability to stretch the field in this league. He displayed that ability when he was here it's just always been overlooked because of all of his shortcomings. In Denver's offense you don't have to do everything. They don't care if you don't block, they don't care if you can't run every route. They'll find what you can do and make the most of it.

Brandon Lloyd is leading the league in 40+ yard catches, leading the league in 20+ yard catches and has a 92% 1st down completion percentage. He's always had this ability it's just never been able to come to fruition because he sucks in almost every other aspect and people just see his 4.65 speed and overlook him as a deep threat.

And yet we are still clamoring for more speed. There's a lot more involved in a receiver being successful than speed. We just don't get it.

The Broncos offense is the same as the Patriots offense. It makes average players look like all-pros.

I agree. If you put Lloyd on 32 teams he's going to fail on probally 30 of them. He just isn't a complete or very talented receiver. I think he's like a Mario Manningham. He's just a wiry guy that operates the sidelines very well and can get open for the long ball. Most teams want you to more some teams run a system and will let you do what you do best.

4.65 or not, he still gets behind defenses, incl ours! It was all Taylor 4.38 Mays could do to catch him near the goal line. He's certainly outplatying anyone on our team and most of the league and makes the prettiest circus catches I've ever seen.

And we rarely used him deep. We had him running slants and quick hitches because we couldn't design anything to get him behind the coverage..
Stay classy, B Lloyd.

Cee Lo Green ain’t got nothin’ on Brandon Lloyd.


The Broncos arranged a press conference on Tuesday for Lloyd, the only member of the team who made it to the Pro Bowl after the franchise’s toilet bowl season. And near the end of the session, Lloyd was asked if he wanted to say “told you so” to the three teams for which he previously played — the 49ers, Redskins, and Bears.

Said Lloyd, per Mike Klis of the Denver Post: ”No, I want to say, ‘F–k you.’ And I mean that in the most professional way.”

Klis said that the “F” bomb was delivered “half-good naturedly, half-seriously.”

Either way, we think that the most pointed and biting two-word phrase in the English language should now be chased whenever uttered with the disclaimer, “And I mean that in the most professional way.”



F**k you too Lloyd.

He was asking for too much money for a team that was rebuilding and needed a complete overhaul. He would have been as bad as he was in Washington and Chicago had he stayed.

Well he could have been Alex Smith's only constant in a world of shifting offenses--sorta like Antonio Bryant was becoming until they let him go. Woulda coulda shouda.

Possibly but again what did he show for the next 6 years in the league? He got a nice contact from Washington and then disappeared. He was nearly out of the league and decided to play up to his talent level. When he was here in seemed that he was more interested in his rap career instead of his football career. I don't regret letting him walk at all.

So you're happy with the diva who held out half a season for more money having never played a down with 700 yds vs the guy with 1500?
