Re: Redskins Release Brandon Lloyd

I think he values his rapping more then his football. He was not that vocal about not getting on the field like others that were benched. I could see him trying to get on with a team that runs the WC, perhaps the Saints or some team desperate to give him a try.

Re: Redskins Release Brandon Lloyd

Thank God.

Now we will only have to read about him when offiss, irish or other naysayers want an example of how F'd up our front office supposedly is or as an argument as to why we should have a GM. I predict Lloyd becomes the new Bruce Smith, as in "Snyder just plays fantasy football and pays too much, just look what he did for Lloyd".

We obviously don't need him around. We just took close to a 2.9 mil cap hit by doing this. Just unsure why now when it would have cost us $0 to drop him after this season.
not quite right there. technically we did cut him next year. he counts 1.8mill this year and a little over 5mill towards 2009, then he's off the books.

More wasted draft picks by Gibbs & Co. Hopefully Zorn will be a little less generous with giving away the team's draft picks.

If the obvious involves taking a poke at the team, he's all over it.

Re: Redskins Release Brandon Lloyd

Lloyd was a bad move from the start. It was no secret that he was a problem in the SF locker room. I guess teams always think they can turn around certain guys, but in the end the Skins got burned on this one. I'm just glad it's over with.

Some little things did leak out here and there but overall Gibbs did a great job at keeping things like that in house.

However the thing is our front office does a great job of picking players in the draft, especially in the later rounds. In my opinion those two picks could have produced a starter and a role player.
I just went back to look at who was available in the 2006 draft, just for kicks, and you want to see a real kick in the groin? Check this out:

119Denver (from Washington)Brandon MarshallWide receiverUCF

So Denver got Brandon Marshall with one of our picks. You know, the same Brandon Marshall that had 102 receptions for 1,325 yards and 7 tds last year. That 6-4 230 lbs. guy who is the reason the Broncos can trade Javon Walker without giving it a second thought. Another thing to keep in mind when we start getting too cavalier about trading away picks ....

Re: Redskins Release Brandon Lloyd

Did they get him as part of the Campbell trade or the Duckett trade?

Good question, actually. I guess it would be part of the Campbell deal right? I guess that makes it slightly easier to swallow. Redskins very likely wouldn't have drafted Williams there anyway, but it just places into relief the potential value of these picks. Cheap players who might actually turn into big time producers.

I wasnt taking a poke at the team, I was pointing out a problem and hoping the new staff will do better.

It's tough to believe that simply because I can't recall the last time I saw a post from you giving praise to the team of any sort.

You may think positive things about the team, but since you don't seem to post them, you come across very negative.
