Brandon Lloyd - Things that make you go 'Hmmmmmm'.

Beyond help

EX-49ER HARD TO DEAL WITH

By John Ryan

Mercury News

In case any 49ers fan still misses the playmaking abilities and hot rapping of Brandon Lloyd, consider his role in the Washington Redskins' undoing.
In a three-part Washington Post series on what ails the franchise, one prominent section bears the headline ``The Troubles With Lloyd.''
A high-ranking member of the organization told the Post, ``From the equipment people on up, he has alienated everyone in this building. He needs help at a level that goes beyond what a teammate or a coach can give him.''
(Hey, he did train at T.O.'s feet for a year.)

The most telling anecdote:

The go route -- in which a wide receiver makes a quick move at the snap of the ball and sprints straight down the sideline -- was Lloyd's specialty. In the first half, Lloyd beat his man down the sideline and seemed to be wide open for a touchdown pass from Jason Campbell. But he could not locate the ball and it dropped to the turf.

According to a member of the organization who witnessed the exchange, (offensive coordinator Al) Saunders approached Lloyd at halftime.

``Tough one out there. Those lights are tough,'' Saunders said.

Lloyd looked at him coldly.``You're joking, right?'' he said.

``No,'' said Saunders. ``It looked like you lost it in the lights.''

``What? That ball was 10 yards underthrown,'' Lloyd said. ``Go talk to the quarterback.''

And the 49ers got third- and fourth-round picks for him, which reminds us of another blast from the past in the article: former 49ers and current Redskins personnel guru Vinny ``Jim Druckenmiller Will Be Awesome'' Cerrato.

Soon we'll be dropping 'Hail to the Redskins' for 'The Whole Town's Laughing at Me'.

Can we PLEASE get a GM!

TMC, not the first thing that came to my mind when my Niners buddy sent it to me with a gloating message regarding the statement that '...he trained at T.O.'s feet for a year '. I replied that the Niners have turned into 'Cancer U'.

Yes, I'm bitter.

Didn't we talk about this last week when the article first came out?

You're about 7 days late, Rat. Asked and answered.

This thread can be locked for all I care.

Yeah, but dude that was last week. By the way, has anyone discussed why we traded for Duckett yet this week?

But seriously, Lloyd is an enigma wrapped in a riddle sauteed in mystery sauce with a side of WTF?

I should have gone with "Start Campbell NOW!', right?

Ok, I'll stop.
