Through 4 games at least.

88% of his 25 catches have been for 1st downs.

Leads the league with 8 catches of 20 yards or more.

Only 2nd in yardage to the All-Pro Reggie Wayne.

Thus far I cannot recall many drops by him at all.

Superb showing from a guy most of the NFL thought was never going to be a player.

Keep it up Brandon.:strong:

Royal's resurgence is a nice story too. Add in Gaffney and Thomas...wow.

If Denver could manage 75 yards rushing a game how would we lose?

Lets just stick to congrats for Lloyd.

Unless that FO wasn't the same one that just traded a 4th for Lawrence "I'll just wait here" Maroney.

He has some of the best hands you'll see on a receiver anywhere. Some of the catches he makes are jaw dropping.

but Llyod was been playing well

as good as Marshall is, our offense works just fine without him

Brandon Lloyd is playing at a stud level for us right now.

I hope he stays hungry and doesn't get a fat head....or demand a fat contract for a while.

He has 25 catches for 454 yards this year.

That puts him on pace for 100 catches for 1816 yards.

He had a season in SF where I thought he was one of the best up-and-coming WR in the league. Then he dropped off of the map for some reason.

I hope he can keep it up, because Orton will be throwing the ball his way quite a bit.

Let's just say I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop, here.

maybe at his age he has matured and realized he isnt going to find an offense that is a better match for him

at least from what I understood his problems with past teams had to do with his effort or lack of in practice and film study

also his inability to run routes and wild inconsistency with his hands

Lets just stick to congrats for Lloyd.

Unless that FO wasn't the same one that just traded a 4th for Lawrence "I'll just wait here" Maroney.

A 4th for Maroney and a 6th, FYI.

Very low value move for a team that needed a back with knowledge of the system, or would Lance Ball (a guy who couldn't gain yardage against 3rd stringers in the pre-season) have been a better alternative?

Lloyd is making the most of his new opportunity, but it is largely coming from within McDaniels' system. He's using Lloyd in a role perfectly suited to Lloyd's abilities. He's now doing the same thing with Royal out of the slot and Gaffney with the short to intermediate routes as well.

Like I said in the game thread though, Lloyd is playing fantastic but he is just a stop gap in this offense for a couple years while Thomas and Decker get 100% up to speed with a complex system. When they're ready this offense will take it to another level.

I'm pretty certain that any of our other backs, including practice squad fellows, could have performed at least as well as Maroney is performing now.

It literally doesnt get any worse than this...that is, unless we would have traded a 3rd and a 5th for him.

Really?

Because I watched enough of pre-season to know for SURE that is not true.

Ball and Hall couldn't handle pass pro against 3rd stringers. You think they'd do well against real NFL talent?

Maroney has looked like **** running the ball but he's also had pretty much no where to run. In fact, his best run all day today came from an off-tackle run where the blocking was so damn bad the entire defensive front seven penetrated the line before Maroney had even picked a hole, letting him cut back for some ok yardage.

But Maroney knows his assignments, primarily in pass pro, and doesn't miss too many block pickups. With poor run blocking and a deficient backfield until Moreno is back the last thing we can afford is ****ty pass pro.

He'd make a solid #3 back, which is what he's supposed to be doing. Instead without Moreno he's the feature guy as our #2 can't handle the #1 load. Such is the curse of employing chance of pace type backs.

Still far too early to judge the OL or any of the backs though. The OL is young and finally starting to get healthy. The backs haven't been healthy either. This pre-season was a perfect recipe for early season struggles on the ground. I look forward to seeing how they handle the second quarter of the season now that guys are starting to get back on the field.

The way Brandon Lloyd controls his body and runs at times reminds me a little bit of Jerry Rice.

I'm in no way comparing him to Jerry Rice, simply that there are few aspects of Lloyd's game that remind me of Jerry Rice when I see it on the field.

He actually reminds me a lot of Miles Austin in Dallas. Not the biggest or most athletic player, but gets the most out of his abilities, runs great routes, has great hands, and just knows how to get open.

Plus, he has the trust of his QB, one of the biggest factors in determining how much you'll get the ball.

He has much better hands than Miles Austin, but he doesnt have the same run-after-catch ability that Austin has.

Lloyd has impressive hands and makes impressive athletic plays.

He's a pro, no doubt. I like how he gets back to the huddle fast, same with all the receivers, they don't f around, they get back to the huddle fast. Professionals.

Moreno needs to learn that.

He actually COULD be a legitimate WR. Thomas is showing flashes of brilliance, but there is no evidence to suggest Decker will pan out at this level. I'm very happy with Lloyd and Thomas, with Royal in the slot. Jabar Gaffney has proven to be a reliable 4th option...

Its hard to believe that anyone would take time apologizing for what has been the worst run game in the history of this proud franchise.

So you think Ball or Hall, guys who couldn't consistently break the LOS in pre-season against 3rd stringers, would suddenly be putting up good runs against starting NFL talent?

Seriously. You can't honestly think that is a legitimate take. There is more to being an NFL RB than running the football. I'm not defending Maroney or the run game, I'm just laying the blame where it belongs, at the feet of the OL. Maroney doesn't help out with it and he dropped a few key passes yesterday but at least he typically gets his pass pro right.

He has been nothing short of awesome in this offense so far.

My fear is McDaniels getting stuck on Lloyd, like he got stuck on Marshall last year, with his playcalling. Some of it started yesterday, with the quick passes to Lloyd. The first got broken up, the second almost did. It's predictable, and defenses will start keying on Lloyd. Luckily, Gaffney and Royal, and to some extent Thomas, are playing well too. Hopefully, McDaniels doesn't forget he's got four good receivers out there.

i agree here.....when we were in the redzone we had a 3rd and 3 and a 4th and 3(we failed).....orton tried to force it to gaffney and lloyd at the back of the endzone when all he had to do was throw it 2-3 yds to royal right in front of him for a TD....

kyle does a good job spreading teh ball......but he does tend to get stuck on a WR during a long drive, this can be a good thing but not in short fields liek teh redzone where the ycan just take that option away....

in teh redzone our best 2 plays the last 2 games were that 3yd out pass to royal for a TD and a 5 yd out for bucky for a TD, simple and usually will get teh defense becasue they think the yhave your top options locked down and dont care about a run game....

True dat. Drek made a comment among the lines that it's the system and what not, but Lloyd gets separation and has great hands. He hardly needs separation.'


Anyone who talks about the system being the source of success at the NFL level really doesn't understand what it takes to play. That would be like saying the New England dominance, the Denver running success during the SB years or the normally great Pittsburgh or Raven defenses is the system. No, it is about having talented players executing very well as a unit or individual players consistently beating the guy across from them. Lloyd is doing well because he does have great hands, he is beating the defenses to open areas through speed and good route running and then doing his job when he gets there. Why some players mature late has numerous reasons -- maturity, better conditioning, focus, desire, etc. It is possible to be in the wrong system that does not take advantage of someones specific talents. However, in 8 years of play, talent coupled with commitment and opportunity will rise to the top as it has here. Give credit where it belongs - with Brandon Lloyd.

_Oro_
10-04-2010, 07:48 AM
I like what Lloyd is doing but he's the perfect candidate to trade away after this break out year. I don't know what his contract status is right now but if we have him past next year (and there's no lock out) then we'll get a bounty of picks from some wide receiver starved team if Lloyd keeps up this pace.

10-04-2010, 08:26 AM
The 2 knocks on Lloyd were always consistency and work ethic, he would drop the easiest catches and then make the circus one hand outstretched in traffic catch and he was lazy.

It seems being an unwanted free agent may have given him the dose of humility he needed to get his work ethic in order and the connection he has with Orton seems to have fixed his dropsies.

There was a never a question about his athleticism, it was other factors. The real question to me is going to be what happens with Thomas/Decker. Clearly we did not spend those draft picks on talented players to have them sit on the bench and Thomas has already been showing off some of his skills. Sooner or later one of the 3 starters will have to make way, Royal seems a lock in the slot, so it is coming down to Lloyd or Gaffney.

It is the same story, pick your poison. You cover Gaffney and Thomas then Royal and Lloyd will bend you over, you take away Royal then Gaffney will do mean things to you.

Game 1: Lloyd 5 catches, 117 yards, Royal 8 catches 98 yards.
Game 2: Thomas 8 catches 97 yards, Royal 5 catches 65 yards.
Game 3: Lloyd 6 catches 169 yards, Gaffney 12 catches 140 yards.
Game 4: Lloyd 11 catches 115 yards, Royal 8 catches 113 yards.

You take away 2, that leaves 2 and Orton will find them. It is like the Stokley, Wayne, Harrison, James and Clark of the 2004 Colts, you can cover some of them, but someone will always be in a good matchup and the QB can find that guy.

It is just a matter of who will be open any given week.

Dedhed
10-04-2010, 09:22 AM
Lloyd has been just off the charts good. Orton clearly has a great deal of confidence in him, and Lloyd has capitalized on that trust.

Lloyd's routes still aren't fantastic, but his ability to uncover while the ball is in the air has been amazing. It takes a lot of trust from Orton to put the ball out there when Lloyd is in single coverage but has yet to get much separation.

Lloyd has rewarded Orton's trust in him time and again this year.

All things considered, we should not have to upgrade the receiving corps moving forward.

Lloyd has been tremendous. Thomas has shown a lot of flashes with his opportunities. Royal is good in the slot and Gaffney is a serviceable player. Throw in Decker when he finally gets primed and I think we will be good to go.

Yup. Lloyd deserves a brand new extension as well, imo.

I would say so, unfortunately I am not sure if anything like that will happen given the ambiguity with the CBA -- but he absolutely does deserve a raise after his performance this year. Definitely a Pro-Bowl season.

At this point, I'd like to see him starting at corner instead of Goodman too.

It'll be interesting to see if we sign him up to an extension, would be really nice to have Lloyd and Thomas on either side for the next few years.

Bey-Bey's contract was for 5 years, about 15 million if I recall correctly? So it's not like we have any huge amount of money tied up in the WR position at present.

I guess it will depend on just how big a deal Lloyd wants to sign up long term. A 3 year extension to keep him in Denver through 2014 would be great.
