I don't have very high hopes for him either. I really hope he can straighten his act out but something tells me he's not going to change and he'll be gone next year. I definitely think if we didn't need to get rid of AA it would have been Lloyd instead.

j/k dude!

On the play of starters, I've heard nothing. Usually in PS game 1,the starters play a quarter or a half, then the back-ups come in. In games 2 & 3, that time might decrease, maybe only a series or two. Then in the 4th game, the starters might play 3/4 or at least a series of the 4th quarter.
I just hope that we leave the key guys out. I really thought we were in a good situation at the beginning of last year...then the injury bug hit! Landry needs to sign from day one so he can win the job...nothing against the othe safeties but I really want him and ST to have a chance to build chemistry.

I'm not a big BL fan, but I have no problem with him crying about this, or that as long as he isn't dragging the team down. If you look at other teams having a crybaby WR, we are sitting pretty if he's unhappy. I think this year has too much promise for him to really make a big stink about anything. Shut up, play ball, and support your teamates and everyone will be happy. Oh yeah....Catch the ball when it does get thrown to you.

I think Lloyd's wife/girlfriend/fiancee/baby mama recently gave birth to their son. So maybe he's just spending some time with them before camp commences.

Here's an article that addressed Lloyd's attitude problems from last year:

Re: Redskins Insider: Cap Stuff/Cooley Stuff/JC Stuff/Random Stuff



That is him last year when he is mad. THINK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS TO LLOYD WHEN HE GETS HIS ROID RAGE!! I can see it now. Instead of throwing a helmet, he will be picking up gibbs and throwing him on the field.

No seriously though, boy got big in one offseason.

He has talent but we didn't see it last year. Say what you will about the QB situation holding him back, but the bottom line is the guy had an awful year no matter how someone spins it.

Needless to say he really needs to step it up this year and not pout his way back to the bench again.

Re: Redskins Insider: Cap Stuff/Cooley Stuff/JC Stuff/Random Stuff

He has talent, for sure. Perhaps my memory is letting me down.....but I can't think of anybody in a similar situation that has turned it around and become a "valuable" contributor. I say he delivers more of the same, and departs after this season. Hopefully, I will be wrong

Ok - I guess I understand a little better. He didn't sound like a complete crybaby - but there's definitely some selfish-ness issues.

This might be one of those things where winning helps - you'll notice that there aren't a lot of crybabys on the patriots, for instance. Winning cures all.

Brandon Lloyd will self destruct at some point. Anyone who takes themselves so seriously that they decide to create two personas is a complete tool IMO.

Look at his website. Brandon Lloyd Official Website - Washington Redskins

There's very little there about the Redskins and he completely glosses over last season. His bio starts with 2005. He believes the hype that he's created in his own mind and I personally think he acts like an immature child.

What concerns me is he doesn't seem to be remorseful for anything, and he really doesn't see any of his behavior as being an issue.

Look at some of these quotes, quite disturbing if you ask me:

"Anything can happen," Lloyd said about the possibility of another blowup. "I don't want it to happen, and I'll do my best for it not to happen."

"It's one of those things that happen that you learn from and move on," Lloyd said. "I've had this personality since I was about 5 years old. And if I ever thought it was a problem, I would have changed it. I'm okay with this kind of attention. So if I thought it was a problem, I would have changed it 20 years ago."

You've got a great point Matty - it'd be different if he just said "Hey I got caught up in the moment and it won't happen again." He's more like "Hey I am who I am so suck it." That's not going to get him too far in life.

Re: Redskins Insider: Cap Stuff/Cooley Stuff/JC Stuff/Random Stuff

Why oh why oh why did the FO give up draft picks and sign BL to big $ when he had not done anything but pout in SF? This move was almost as worse as the Duckett move.

But Snyder made some interesting comments in his one session w/ the media this offseason. He said that "we are proud of BL." So I guess he has really been working out real hard in the offseason. He looks bigger so we shall see.

I move to ban all discussion of the Duckett trade. That was so f*ckin assinine to trade away a 3rd rounder for a player we never intended to use at all. Re-f*cking-diculous. I still can hardly believe it actually happened.

I'm not a big fan of these me sites but allot of players have them. If you look at his news its all Redskins and his photo's the few he has are skins and some personal stuff. Most of the other stuff like bio's hardly ever get up dated. I'm not sure we can look at his site and read too much into it. My self I think he is playing for his career this year and from what I/we have heard is that he has worked hard so far. I'm giving him a by last year as the whole team sucked and even Moss had a down year. If he causes trouble this year or cannot produce I'll chalk it up as another FO mistake.
