This is more dumb stuff! Im sure Josh knew as did most people that this guy was called bi-polar on more than one team and this is why I told people last summer, LLoyd wasnt a steal, we got him at that price cuz he is a journeyman headcase who u cant count on. Being with Brady is the only reason he performed admiraly. Foiled again....lol and now on to find another WR for Brady!
A system guy at that money in his prime is a bad move? 74 catches, 1000 yards in his first year here with a QB who looks mostly at 3 other guys first?
The production is not the issue. He was counted on just fine. He played hurt with a bad leg and still produced. The issue is the style of the offense being so slanted to 2-3 guys, that the other receivers (the flankers), never really get incorporated into the gameplans.
There always has to be a scapegoat for Brady and this started, big time, in 2005 when they switched into this McDaniels pass happy base. How can so many veterans come in here and all have the same problem? Hmm.
The other issue is, how this kind of thing might actually scare WRs away in FA when they see this stuff.
Christ, it's come to the point now where Brady has to have a HOF WR at his beck and call to accept a flanker here. Larry Fitzgerald or bust, right? My god.
Meanwhile, Gomer misses an entire year and jumps into a Denver uni and has no issue at all with Thomas and Decker.
I didnt say it was a bad move. I said is dumb to release him now with info that they should have known about already and I said I was telling fans to keep it in perspestive at the time because they thought he took a discount coming here when I thought the money was on par with his attitude/mood swings. IM all for keeping him because I know how hard is it to get guys here that can play and to get 74 catches when it seemed like he only had 40 is pretty good but he is what he is. A sideline guy who will make nice grabs and toe taps but will check out in big games where defenders can keep him quiet. He is a # 2 who would flourish with a real # 1 but we dont have that. So my point it its dumb for them to come out with this stuff now cuz its old. Just an excuse to be cheap and cut a player and gamble they can replace him in the draft
