Default Brandon Lloyd - Hitching His Wagon to McD's Star

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d...mcdaniels-does

" I would love to grow with Sam Bradford; that would be awesome. I've never had a true elite-level quarterback in my career."

Bradford has hardly been "Elite" this year. He's rather lose with a QB he likes than win with an unorthadox QB. He may have great hands, but I'm glad he's gone. Guys like that, me-only guys that don't care about winning, don't belong on a team like the Broncos.

Enjoy losing with an "elite" QB you douche!

From the article:
Quote:
"I can't even lie about that," Lloyd said. "I'm tied to McDaniels. He uses me differently than other offensive coordinators used me in my entire career. He uses me as an every-play receiver. The short game, mid-range game, gimmick passes, deep balls."
Is it really that much of a reach?

"Elite" was Lloyd's word, not mine

And you should probably pick either a better quote to link to your suggestive (albeit accurate) title, or change your title.


I mean, since we're doling out advice.

you better get used to saying that. there are not going to be any top WRs comming to denver for the same reason as Lloyd. WRs get paid on the basis of what numbers they put up. noones going to risk getting a lowball contract for tebow.

And on the flip side, OL and RB's will probably love to come to Denver's run happy offense.

With this offense top WR's are not as neccessary as top RB's and a stout OL.

Also, go back and look at Big Ben's stats when he first started. They arn't all that different. Tebow very well could develop into a decent passer.

Plus, some players will want to WIN. Denver may have to overpay if they want a top FA WR, but I'd rather just draft and develop home grown talent anyways. I'm not to worried about a Tebow effect on FA WR's.

I love the title "McDaniels' star". McDaniels hasn't one anything good for Bradford. As for Lloyd, we still could have used him but he is hanging the est of his career with a loser of a coach. If McDaniels goes to the Chiefs, I wonder if he wants Orton and therefore Lloyd follows McFailure to KC.

So does this mean that Lloyd will have to find a way to convince Canton High that he is a 14 year old who just moved to town and wants to join their football team?

It would make a great premise for a bad 80's movie but only if he also pretended to be a chick and fell in love with another chick who thought he was a chick...now I am confused.

throw in a subplot about the community rec center in danger of being bulldozed to build a new condominium project and the chick is fighting to save it in memory of her dad, and you've really got something. don't forget the big dance at the rec center either.
