    As far as I know, Lloyd has never been great after the catch.  He runs a lot of out routes and corner routes where he barely gets both feet down by going out of bounds.  That is his game, making spectacular catches in tight areas.  I don't think they've run a ton of slants for him where he makes a play after the catch, that's not his game.  I don't know what he did during the great year he had in Denver, but he is pretty similar to what he's always been this year in NE.  From what I've seen, he catches the ball in traffic, always runs his curl routes to the first down marker and fights for yardage.  I think the YAC thing is as much about the routes he runs and the skills he has moreso than anything else. 


    I don't know the context of Troy Brown's comments, but I don't buy his or anyone's perception Lloyd is soft, even as evidenced by his YAC #'s.

    I think Loyd is doing a good job and like some have said hear, you can only catch balls thrown your way. I really like his down field  blocking and have noticed it on a lot of running plays. He also helps in running routes to clear ways for Gronk, Aaran, and Wes. I believe he was the receiver who cleared out the left side at the Jets game when Vareen caught that 80 or so yard TD pass against the Jets to start the three TD in 52 seconds run!
