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.
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.
