I would be surprised if his stats are not better than Moss' at the end of the year. Moss will have the explosions. Lloyd will be consistent.

It cRaZy what they will be able to do with the receivers they have. I totally slept on the Christian Furia pick up. The bullets are there - I hope Brunell can pull the trigger!

I think the move to get El for his WR role was kind of disappointing to watch him at camp. Never saw anything that impressing about him in his sideline drills. It seems to me that already his paycheck is outrageous. He better run back punts/ kicks big time for us b/c I dont see him impacting too much offensively.
i agree. lloyd looks legit though.

Re: B Lloyd - I'm starting to like this guy

As a 49er fan, I have followed Lloyd's career since he started. All I have to say is that he is trash. He isn't a good teammate, he is afraid to go over the middle, short arms passes when he is about to get hit and makes a lot of mental mistakes. All he cares about is making spectacular catches, which he will have about one of every game, not many result in TD's however. Take tonights game as an example: Brunell throws a nice pass and Lloyd slows down to make a leaping grab instead of catching it in stride and getting the YAC. The other pass thrown his way, Brunnell looks for Lloyd on the outside and Lloyd ran an inside route, resulting in an INT. Not to be a homer, but we robbed you guys blind. He isnt worth a 3rd or a 4th, let alone BOTH. I believe your offense will be very effective this year. Moss is a great receiver and Randle El is good. But Lloyd just isn't a good football player.

Only a handfull of wideouts in the league could make that catch and you are badmouthing him? Guess what chief, Antonio Bryant can't make that catch. He shouldn't have dove? You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Have fun going 3-13.

Antonio Bryant is superior to Lloyd in every way. Dont even compare the two. Lloyd is just interested in making sportscenter highlights not winning football games. He isn't a burner and is a liability when blocking. I believe the niners will win 6-8 games.

I just dont understand what he was thinking when he traded a 3rd&4th for Lloyd. I want some of what he was smoking when he greenlit the deal.

Rooting for your team is great, but Antonio Bryant has been a locker room cancer in every team he's been on. Are you seriously going to hold him up as some paragon of sportsmanship?

I didn't refer to Bryant's character in my posts i refered to Lloyd's. With Bryant there has only been one incident, in Dallas he threw a sweaty jersey at Parcells. In Cleveland there were no issues. So far it has been smoothe in San Fran.

Re: B Lloyd - I'm starting to like this guy

As a receiver I like Bryant. But it is a bit curious that he had his best season last year (nearly 70 catches, over 1000 yards) and yet the Browns made no offer at all to re-sign him. They had the money. And their top 2 receivers-Edwards and KWII-were coming off major knee injuries.

Still, they let him walk.

You said he was superior in every way, while denigrating Lloyd, especially his character, so if you're going to compare apples to apples, it's a fair thing to bring up.

And "incidents" are not what defines a guy's character. Those are just the things the media catches on TV. Hence the phrase, "locker room cancer", as locker room attitudes aren't necessarily front page news. Google the guy if you don't believe me, his past going back to his college days is littered with reports of sideline temper tantrums and the like.

I don't really care that much one way or another about Bryant, you see, it sounds like he is genuinely changing his ways and has developed a rapport with Smith. The point is that you can't always judge a guy by what he did at the last place he played. If that were the case, the "superior" Antonio Bryant might well have never played again after his stint in Dallas.
