In response to dapats1281's comment:
Not saying he is horrible. I've mentioned that he's probably the best 4th option in the leage.
What I am saying is that watching him play the WR position gets annoying.
Edelman is no where near as good as Lloyd, but he lays his body on the line on every play. I can respect that and enjoy watching Edelman play. He's the type of player that you want to fight with you in the playoffs.
The thing I fear about Lloyd is this:
His reluctance to get hit can lead to:
Crucial drops. These will be magnified in a playoff run. Lloyd is going to be the guy that will get the most one on one's out of Welker, Gronk and Hernandez. He's going to get some significant passes thrown his way.
Everytime I think of the 2001-2004 Pats, I think of the clip of Bruschi yelling, "They don't got it" after he stripped the Colts receiver of the ball. Lloyd, to me, is the type of receiver that would get stripped of the ball.
all receivers drop passes, wes welker is as sure handed as they come and even he made a huge drop in the super bowl.....i like what lloyd brings to the team, i honestly dont think they are using him right, but he does have 35 catches, not bad for a 4th option.
