I really think there's a chance he's gone this offseason. Just when you thought we had our WR position solved... looks like we could be hunting again this offseason for a WR. Randle El is nice but not a true #2. Patten is probably gone.
Next year's #2....Mike Espy!

Re: Brandon Lloyd MIA

They definitely shouldn't cut Lloyd. He gets lit up by the media for a lack of production, but he didn't have a much worse season than Antwaan Randle El...here are the stats:

ARE: 32 catches, 351 yards, 3 TD's
Lloyd: 23 catches, 365 yards, no TD's

Hell, Santana only had 55 catches, 790 yards and 6 TD's. He missed two games, just one more than Lloyd. I think these guys need to stay together and give Jason Campbell a chance to hang out with them over the offseason. They need to get together and get their timing down. Then, if it doesn't work out after that, they can think about cutting Brandon Lloyd.

somewhere along the line, the skins are going to figure out that continuity means alot in todays nfl. i think lloyd made some plays when the ball was thrown his way. but earlier too much dink and dunk by brunell shorted his stats. at least another season with the same recievers

Sounds like GGrilliamss gave Joe a clinic on how to exile a player before they're cut.

At least Espy gave every play his all. I'll take hungry and raw over gifted and lazy any day of the week.

I've been preaching the sermon of we are going to have to get another receiver in here for the longest. I am happy to see that someone on here is finally seeing the same thing. For some reason people think that Randle El is an effective #2 but I am not feeling that he is good with the gimmick plays and is a pretty good punt returner but at 2 we need more consitancy and someone a little bigger.

Re: Brandon Lloyd MIA

I dont think Gibbs would just straight up lie to the media. He clearly said Brandon was sick, and he tried to run before the game and he couldn't, so as a health concern they did not dress him.

He hasn't started a game since his helmet throwing incident, and I agree with you, I don't think all is well between the team and Mr. Lloyd. I'm not inclined to believe him being inactive had to do with illness either.

It will be a big pill to swalow if we have to release both him and Archuleta.

Lloyd's story line runs a little deeper than just the one incident where he threw his helmet. He has character issues, has said and done some things that just do not go over well with people in sports, as well as life in general.

Re: Brandon Lloyd MIA

Don't judge the wideouts based on stats this year. They had father time passing 6 yard patterns in the beginnig of the year. As far as B Lloyd is concerned, Dallas couldn't cover him.

Give him a year with Campbell. That is more reasonable.

Oh yeah, he really came on strong once Campbell was throwing him the ball (sarcasm)

Re: Brandon Lloyd MIA

You guys are talking about continuity, but continuity means nothing if the player is a negative impact in the locker room. Continuity works in the NFL because it fosters team cohesion - Lloyd is the kind of player who threatens that. With character so important for Gibbs and his teams, I would not be surprised at all to see Lloyd jetisoned.

Be nice to have those two picks back huh?

Nevermind - there he is. One mystery solved.
