Yes, exactly my point. ARE may be in the #2 spot, but Lloyd will get just as many chances if not more.

Yeah because he is a better "reciever."

I don't think Lloyd has a lot of supporters.

Brandon is more physically gifted than ARE and rightfully should be the #2 receiver, both on the depth chart and by the numbers. I think it's a problem when your #2 receiver is the tight end. I'm taking nothing away from Chris Cooley who is a better receiver then either BL or ARE. It's just that the top two receivers by catches, yards and TDs should be your wideouts.

For the team's sake, I hope Lloyd is successful this year, but I don't have my hopes up.

Re: ARE vs. Lloyd for the number 2 WR spot

I usually side with the majority opinion but it looks I'm in the minority when it comes to Lloyd. I like him a lot. I love the fiery, cocky attitude. I think he uses it to motivate him to make plays. Lloyd follows in the mold of Gary Clark. Not everyone can be like Art Monk. In fact, as far as receivers and ego...um...go, Monk seems to have been an aberration. As long as he stays out of trouble with the law, I will root for him to compete with Santanna for the #1 role.

I also think it's kind of silly to say "Lloyd's not a #2" due to to last year's performance when everyone's performance last year was subpar. With that line of thinking we don't any first stringers.

Re: ARE vs. Lloyd for the number 2 WR spot

i think I'm in the minority when it comes to Lloyd, too. nothing wrong with alittle swagger. i don't remember Lloyd dropping any balls last season. it was just Brunell wouldn't throw to him. should be different this year

Re: ARE vs. Lloyd for the number 2 WR spot

Based on how last year ended ARE should be listed ahead of Lloyd. Lloyd has a lot to prove right now.

Re: ARE vs. Lloyd for the number 2 WR spot

I really don't think that either is a strong # 2 guy from what we say last year. I hope that at least one of them took last year to heart, and went home and had a long talk in front of a mirror. We need to have a strong guy this year other than Moss.

Re: ARE vs. Lloyd for the number 2 WR spot

I was listening to Gibbs presser the other day and the way he talks about BL you would think he was Gary Clark. Gibbs always says he is real talented, he is real graceful catching the ball, has all this ability. I even read that he and Springs trained together in Ariz and Springs was saying the same stuff. I mean Springs said that Lloyd was one of the most talented WR's he had ever been around. Now that's a bold statement.

So why doesn't all this ability transfer to the field?? Yes, you can blame some of it on Brunell, but that only goes so far. Plus he never did shit in SF.

I'm looking for this guy to really take off this year. I'm talking about 60-80 catches and 6-8 TD's. He needs to put up or shut up and go away.

ARE is a nice player but he is not a solid NFL #2 WR. If our offense is going to improve and go to the next level we are going to need Lloyd to play like he is capable of playing.

Re: ARE vs. Lloyd for the number 2 WR spot

Antwaan burned shawn springs yesterday. ARE had to dive down for the catch and might not have caught it. I think the ref might of said no catch but i had a better look at it than even the ref did and it looked good. Maybe out of bounds but ARE caught it. Shawn turned around indicating no catch with his hands. Small tidbit from camp, thats all.

If your going to start a thread about a player at least get the facts right. Lloyd is listed as the #3 WR only because that is how they finished the season last year and has nothing to do with their play in camps. I heard this twice over the past 2 days and one of the sources was Gibbs. On the Riggo show yesterday the reporter they had at camp said he did not know if it was just him but Lloyd look much faster than he did last year and he was impressed with hi play. Lets give the guy a break and the opportunity to prove that he can get the job done. Our O and D all looked bad last year and the only player that really stood out was Betts.

Based on last year Lloyd isn't even a good #3.

Like I said, he has a lot to prove right now.
