Some people think that they were all cheering for him when he caught that pass this year (Lions game I think), but really they were apparently mock cheering.

What upset most of the players/coaches beyond the way he treated people at Redskins Park and his inability to really learn his role in the offense is the fact that they all agree he could have easily been their best receiver, instead he just wasted his talent.

Now I know there's a "we didn't give him a chance, we never threw him the ball" sentiment but the reality is that Lloyd has to shoulder a lot of the blame. And if people keep trying to make excuses for him (like they do for Ramsey, like they did for LaVar) then he'll fail wherever he goes.


I agree Smack....And what's most dissapointing about the whole Lloyd ordeal is that the Redskins didn't see this coming. Vinny Cerrato knows the 49er organization well, and Lloyd's reputation there arived here before he did. Based on some of the things he was known for there, I was actually surprised we were willing to take a chance on a player of his reputation, notwithstanding the cost. You learn from your mistakes, and move on.

Now we've got even more space for Lavar! God, I think if we hurry we can even have Ramsey replace Collins!

right, my bad
Guess the reason I think of it as a fa signing is because his deal expired after his 1st year here, but they STILL went ahead & signed him to the long term deal.

No worries, Lavar is going to sign for the always popular "Vet Minimum".

He got into a fight w/ JC or Portis?? This would've leaked out, don't you think? But I do agree with all of your points. He is just an ass with a real bad attitude. I was hoping he'd get it together but it's not going to happen here. I would bet his career is over. Now he can go on to making records. LOL!!!

I could have sworn it was, but then Gibbs quickly swept it under the rug.

Can't we stay away from horseshit receivers from the Bay Area? First Calvin Muhammad, then Malcom Barnwell, now this guy.

Yeah, kinda a "lousy 'Skins wide receiver from the Raiders/Niners" joke. I'm new to Redskins Warpath, does anyone have a sense of humor? Posts all seem so serious. When you put Muhammad, Barnwell & Lloyd in the same sentance, that's a joke, ok?

Here at the Warpath we take the internet very seriously. That way we don't end up like Extreme Skins.
