    Lloyd and his miraculous catches

    Are all on the sideline falling out of bounds.

    He's had some pretty horrible drops this season on some easy throws.

    I think we all see it...this guy is terrified of getting hit. Moreso than any receiver I have ever seen.

     

    Honestly, if I were a defense, I'd give him the inside and guard the sideline. You make him move into the field and he's going to fold with a safety within 5 yards of him. Seriously, defenses should prevent him from going out of bounds.

     

    I don't care if he ends up going for 1000 yards and 6-7 TDs...for a team that was once known for its toughness, this guy severely lacks it.

    Re: Lloyd and his miraculous catches

    He's horrible when it comes to drops. The reason he has all those highlight catches is because he makes the easy ones tougher than they need to be. He is an athletic guy, but he's SO scrawney, and he's definitely not tough. I was VERY against the Pats shelling out the cash for him...but then they got him at a big discount, which is really what he's worth. But the expectations for him should be in that same range. He'll be OK, but he's NOT a #1 Wideout on a good team. He's definitely not a guy they should feel comfortable relying on and letting Welker go.

    Um, okay dude, whatever you say! But you are wrong.  Has he been what we were hoping for? Probably not at this point but to talk about him like he is a bust then I gotta disagree.  Number one he is a threat and even a bit of a deep threat so that alone keeps defenses honest and opens up others.  As far as drops and stuff, well he has dropped some catchable passes and he has caught some very difficult catches so I think we should keep him around.  Beats the heck out of anyone else they have brought in since MR. MOSS left town.

    Brandon Lloyd is awesome.  He will get better as the season goes on.  Jeez, the guy is the 4th option for Brady, and he is on track to be a 1000 yard reciever.

    It is now like we have Calvin Johnson sitting on the bench. Who would you want out there? Ochocinco?  Reche Caldwell?  Sam Aiken?  Deion Branch? Brandon Tate? Joey Galloway?
    Tiquan Underwood?


    He is way better than all of them.

    Re: Lloyd and his miraculous catches

    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.

    Re: Lloyd and his miraculous catches

    Whatever his deficiencies his perceived fear of getting hit is not one of him.  Jerry Rice made a HOF career of going out of bounds rather than taking a needless hit.  Our own Deion Branch is another example.  Branch will fall to the ground rather than take a hard hit.  Branch was a SB MVP.  Any player is most valuable if they are able to suit up for 16 games each year.

    You are right that Edelman is as tough as they come, but he's missed several games because of it.

    The dude has sucked so far.  He gets Zero separation and drops more balls then he catches.

    actually his lack of reliablity allowed the jets to play a safety up and stuf the middle more effectively than other teams have done against us.

    He's made a few spectacular catches especially on the sidelines but has dropped some of the easy ones. Dropped passes lose games. The 2003 and 2004 Patriots seemed to catch everything that was thrown their way. 

    Lloyd hasn't made a play on a long pass, in fact I cant remember the last time they hit on a bomb period. One where the ball is thrown over 30 yards in the air. It seems like years.

    Buffalo game.  Brady hit Gronk for about 35 in the air.  It says a lot when the receiver in this case is a tight end.  The fact is Lloyd is not getting separation and is dropping balls he should catch.   He did not give full effort on that bomb in the first quarter against the Jets.
