Lloyd and the Spectacular Catch


http://files.denverbroncos.com/resources/custom/Images/11_Blogs/110823_lloyd_blogtop.jpg
One of the Broncos’ Pro Bowlers from last season is in line to get a little love in Madden ‘12.
This week, fans can vote for what is being dubbed “Club 100 (http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/feature/video/_/id/6875081/madden-12-club-100)” in the newest iteration of the popular NFL video game. One player will be given a 100 rating in five categories — throw accuracy, elusiveness, hit power, spectacular catch and speed.
Today, voting opens for the Spectacular Catch category (http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/feature/video/_/id/6875081/madden-12-club-100), and Brandon Lloyd is one of the candidates.
He’s up against Dez Bryant, Braylon Edwards, Larry Fitzgerald and Calvin Johnson — so there’s some good competition.
If you’re not sure Lloyd deserves your vote, here are a few reminders of what the league’s leading receiver from 2010 can do:

Lloyd should be a lock. He caught Td passes from Orton and some qb with crappy throwing mechanics.

I don't want to turn this into a QB thread so I'll just say Lloyd was on the receiving end of some very decent deep balls last season.

Love Lloyd but Fitz has made some of the most spectacular catches I have ever seen.

Fitz has done it longer, I think, and more consistently.

Lloyd has made some amazing acrobatic catches back before he became a good receiver with us.

IN a effing pre-season game. I was about to nod off while watching this on NFL network and jumped out of my chair yelling "are you ****ting me?"

Best catches I have seen in a long time were from Brandon Lloyd long before he was a Bronco. Look at the first one in this video. Amazing athlete!

Lloyd pretty much makes that catch at the 1:43 mark in this video while the first catch of the video and the catch at 1:30 were both superior, in my opinion.

B Lloyd bailed both Orton and Tebow a ton last season.

A lesser receiver might've gotten hit by that pass.

Yeah, not even close...

Fitz caught that diving with NO hands... with his forearm and bicep

He dove, cradled the ball with a hand, then caught it on the bobble with his arm. Nice, yes... but not ZOMG!

They both have spectacular hands. Fitz is a more gifted athlete but damn is Lloyd not the best genuine receiver we've ever had as a Bronco? I love that he came out of his shell here and all (with all the appropriate propps to Rod) but this guy's got athletic skills that far exceed Rod's. I've been very impressed with him. He's the best thing Josh did for us as a team, IMO. He's got some pretty impressive character and brights as well. I think we're lucky to have him. This may be the first time I've actually stated it publicly but "Thanks Josh".

I see your Fitzgerald and raise you a Harrison. Starts at 2:09

He dodged that ball with supreme athleticism.

Brandon Lloyd is so good at making ridiculous catches that even when he was terrible and/or buried on benches across the country he was still known around the league for them.
