Lloyd Says All The Right Things.....Again
 
Remember last year at his presser how he was saying all the right things, and how excited everyone was to have him? Then he has one of the worst seasons ever. Well, he's back at it.

[I]"I just need to go out and catch balls, [B]continue[/B] to run good routes, [B]continue [/B]to make big plays," Lloyd said. "I feel like I need to [B]continue[/B] to run routes and[B] continue[/B] to block. Everything. I need to improve at everything."[/I]

Notice how he keeps using the word continue, like he actually did these things last year. I hope he's got his head on straight, because he could be a beast in this offense.

You should be glad he's talking this way. The mind of an athlete must be one of absolute confidence at all times. If he was down on himself and rattled from last year then I would be concerned. You heard it hear first, he's gonna have a solid year.

I am still not too sure about Lloyd. I thought he was great before because he seemed to have passion. I liked him quite a bit, but when I heard about all the crap he was talking last season, I have lost all confidence in him.

Personally I dont think we need huge production from him. We still have Moss, El and perhaps Thrash which I still feel is enough.

I am glad he's talking that way, and I'm very concerned. FO gave up alot to get him, and he did absolutely nothing last year. Not to mention all the bullcrap behind the scenes. I'm not going to give the benefit of the doubt to someone who's done nothing to earn it. That being said, here's to hoping he blows up this year.

Words have a way of flowing more easily than deeds. I've found it wise to hang my hat on what one does, as opposed to what one says.. I listen, I watch, and I wait, results is what I'm looking for.

While it's good to hear talk is cheap this time of year. Let's see him walking the walk during the season.

Lloyd sounds to me like he is focused, and he says that he knows he needs to "improve on everything." Shawn Springs has made it clear that he thinks Lloyd has as much talent as he has seen in any receiver he's played with.

Last year was a learning experience, and I think that Lloyd will surprise people this year.

[quote=wilsowilso;334006]I knew he had a bad year, but the Post actually said statistically speaking he had the worst year of any starting wide reciever in the Super Bowl era!!!!!!

That is straight up embarassing. I sure hope that utter humiliation doesn't sit well with him.[/quote]

Think about this, one of our starting WRs had the WORST years for a starting WR in the SB era, our D had a league WORST 6 interceptions, a record LOW 12 takeaways, a record LOW sacks in a season. On top of this our star players like CP and Moss got or played injured, we lost PP on the very first play, we had one of the WORST FA additions of all time in Adam Archuleta - basically, last year if it could go wrong it did go wrong!!!

I'm not saying its all gonna be right this year, but with so much being so bad all it will take is a few things to improve for us to be much better this year.

This is why I got mad at the thread of Portis saying that garbage that his heart wasn't into last season. Talk is cheap!!!!!!!! Let us see what the mother does on the field!!!!!!

We need Loyd to play well this year or we need to get rid of him.

that great he saying the right things. But so what its time for him to show it on the field. Anyone one can say the right things. Talk is cheap.

Lloyd and Rogers will be great this season. Lloyd took a bit too much heat last season, IMO. One game we went to him early, he caught everything. After that, we rarely ever went to him. I'm on the Lloyd - Rogers ticket for people TWP jumps onboard quick.

Here's a local story about Lloyd which sounds like he is on the right track.
