Brandon Lloyd

i dont recall any of you talking about this but if so then just delete or whatever.


What do you think about Lloyd being hooked up with a new coach and a new offensive scheme? do you guys think he will have any value as far as our team?? It seems to be a good story that nobody is talking or writing about that i know of. Will he thrive in a hybrid west coast offense that zorn will be running? did he and gibbs just really not get along? Would the new coach want to start over with lloyd? will they get along? i personally hate the SOB and hope to see him fail everything in his life but the "what if " factor has taken over. And it sucks to think about how we paid for him to get pretty much nothing out of him. So do you guys think we try to see what he can do with a new HC and a new OC with a whole new scheme?

Re: Brandon Lloyd

I think he's gone. Plain and simple. It's not a bad thread, but the Redskins have been waiting to release this guy for a while so I'd count on Lloyd being gone.

Re: Brandon Lloyd

I seriously believe no matter which regime we have in Washington, Brandon Lloyd is probably toast. There is that outside chance that he could shine in the West Coast Offense, but if that's the case he wouldn't have left San Fran (I assume they still run the WCO?)

Re: Brandon Lloyd

is he actually that expensive to keep? By cutting him, we'd have to pay out the rest of his signing bonus this year right? while I too am sick of him, perhaps a new head coach, system, coordinator, etc may be able to find some use...

Re: Brandon Lloyd

I was going to say the same thing, hes way too expensive to cut so I think he gets a second chance with the new regime. He has a chance to get in good with a brand new coach. I not only expect him to be here next season I expect production. I want at least 700 yards and 8 TDs but we'll have to wait and see.

Problem is that the 'system' was not B. Lloyd's problem. It's his attitude, his work ethic, and his relationship with pretty much every member of the team. Later.

And I want my student loans paid off. The chances of that happening in the next year is much greater than B. Lloyd catching 8 tds next year ... or the rest of his career frankly.

He's gone. Hope the door doesn't hit him in the mangina on the way out.

Llyod is due a roater bonus March 1 of this year in the amount of $1.8 million. I don't see Synder & Co. keeping him on the roster to give him that bonus. My bet is the Skins cut him so he doesn't get that bonus and than designate him a June 1 Cap cut so the cap hit gets spread out over the next 2 years. As Schneed and Crazy Canuck and other capologists on ths site have pointed out, the SKins can easily cut Llyod as far as the cap goes.
My take is Llyod has very little production over the 2 years he has been here. I know that some of his supporters say that he just never got a chance, but I call that BS. Outside of QB whom Gibbs shows a lot of patience with (keeping Brunell as the starter even though he was injured for too long) I think Gibbs puts in the players that perform well, practice with 100% effort and show a willingness to do whatever it takes to win. Gibbs does not seem the type to hold grudges against anyone and purposefully hold back a talented player. From the reports I read of Llyod and how he was here and in SF, he has shown what he is capable of - which is not much.
Instead of prolonging a failing experiment, the Skins should just go with Moss, Randle El and I bet they can find a tall, poession reciever (Mix may be the answer) and let some other team find out what the 49ers and Burgundy and Gold have found out - Brandon Llyod is all hype and no game.

Re: Brandon Lloyd

Lloyd and Gregg Williams share the same odds of being Redskins at the start of next season.

By the way, I believe that Lloyd is a Cerrato move coming from his 49er roots. That worked out like a lead balloon.
