    Google "Brandon Lloyd locker room cancer," and do some reading. He played for six teams. Great locker room guys with his talent have that happen a lot.

    Who are you, anyway? You seem to feel you're pretty important. What you come across as is a sad, little boy that needs to change his drug of choice to something less "mentally stimulating."
    What does him being retired after he was cut before the season started have to do with anything?

    Your post said "after all the times Patriots were desperate for WRs this year...etc" hence why I mentioned he retired. That was my response to THAT.

    Lloyd was the least of our problems here. Was he one of those that Elway was talking about? Probably...however he wasn't one of those immediately cut either.

    Lloyd was by no means ever a long term solution, or even a solution for 2+ seasons... let's keep that in mind.

    Lloyd is a great team player! He produced yet every team he was with couldn't get rid of him fast enough.

    That's how professional sports work, if you're a quality guy and you produce they get rid of you as quick as possible.

    And just to be clear here that's all sarcasism.

    Lloyd was cancer.

    Seems kinda obvious JE was referring to his installment of a new method based on talent, character and pay instead of the unscrupulous bush league tiddlywinks little Fuzzy Head was engaged in.

    Of course, McD used the same pretense when he packaged Cuddles and Co. off. Difference is he didn't know wtf he was doing and it's likely he only wanted his security blankets from NE.

    The worst thing about living or working under a tyrant is his arbitrary yet obstinate ruling manner. Then when they fail the little people, in this case the ones in the locker room, are always the ones who suffer the squeeze. Elway saw morale was low and knew it started at the top. He also knew his method meant some people were good as gone. Not because of some personal vendetta, but because they really didn't fit with the vision. You see the converse in how he kept McD's guys who didn't suck.

    The correct answer is, obviously, Brian Dawkins.

    Sounds specific ... maybe ex-pats like Jabar Gaffney, Brandon Lloyd, Hochstein, that fat Long-snapper? Orton was a flaming dick half the time ... or maybe as simple as Perrish Cox.

    Darkhorses: DJ Williams, Ron Fields, Jamal Williams, couppla Philly fossils, couppla Dolphin DB castoffs ...? Can't be Tebow, John kept him, even anointed him the starter before 2011 camp.

    We ended 2010 vs. Chuggers with these starters:


    Chugs started Louis Vazquez, Shaun Phillips and Quentin Jammer.

    That's almost 15% of our starting lineup in the CG tomorrow ... weird.

    Lulz at some of the stupidity I'm reading.

    Action...I'm going to enjoy seeing McD suffer for all the bull**** he perpetrated on this team.

    This isn't about "protecting" anybody, it's about getting the facts straight.

    Lloyd rode the practice squad in 2009 I believe and then had a big year. Lloyd was extremely well spoken in all his interviews. Low character guys generally don't do that.

    The fact is, Lloyd's time was done considering the emergence of DT and Decker. McDaniels knew that Lloyd was a stop gap, and Elway knew that Lloyd served no use for the future.

    The fans are just full of ****. Same people praising Elway for cleaning up the locker room are the same ones who hate McDaniels for trading away Cutler and Marshall, possibly the 2 biggest locker room cancers of their time. And lets not forget Tony Scheffler...the biggest piece of trash that's put on a Broncos uni for the past X amount of years.
    I agree with this perception about Lloyd. He seemed very well spoken and intelligent. However, he is without a team despite racking up huge yards the last couple years.

    Maybe Elway just meant the locker room was literally filthy so they mopped it.

    Not sure why people are talking like Von Miller has any leverage...he has none. He knows it and his agent knows it.

    He will have to put up or shut up next year. Good for the Broncos because that means Von Miller will be playing to the best of his ability next year...

    My point exactly. Just give him the franchise tag. I'm not sure of the limitations on that but it's his problem. If he complains, tell him to fish for a team that will trade for him and give him the package he wants. He won't get it.

    Think of how desperate the Patriots were at WR at times this year. Yet Brandon Lloyd doesn't get a sniff. That says it all.
    He retired ...lol
