    Default Denver Post: Brandon Lloyd to the teams who cut him "**** you"

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-former-teams/


    Brandon Lloyd was the only Broncos player to make the AFC Pro Bowl squad and to help mark the occasion, the team arranged for the local media to join him on a conference call.

    Lloyd was extremely thoughtful, humble and appreciative until near the end of the conference call when he admitted to taking some personal satisfaction in showing his previous teams in San Francisco, Washington and Chicago that they were mistaken about the type of receiver he could become.

    Asked if he wanted to tell those three teams: ”told you so,” Lloyd said half-good naturedly, half-seriously: “”No, I want to say, ‘(Bleep) you.’ And I mean that in the most professional way.”

    After about 3 seconds of stunned silence, Broncos media relations director Patrick Smyth jumped into the call: “Anything else for Brandon, guys? I have receivers coach Adam Gase here … ”

    Sorry for the dead link.

    I guess you guys did not follow him. He has been given ample, AMPLE, chances to show he can play and all he has done is choke. Drop passed, run bad routes, give up on plays, etc.

    He has ONE good year, with a team that reportedly told him if he did not work out they would let him go, and he publicly says that.

    Sorry, not sure how anyone can agree with him. At best he is a HUGE PR idiot, at worst he is a moron who has robbed previous teams blind and will be a bum within three years bragging about his one and only pro-bowl.

    I am going to bet on the latter.

    Then I would say you would come across as an idiot as well.

    One good year, and you go off running your mouth. What about the other 9 years where you plain sucked?

    Then again, if this was "you" (as a pro athlete) I am sure the other 4 teams were just wrong and hated you, or God just wasnt ready for you to break out yet. Gotta wait on the man above to answer every atheltes tweets

    My thoughts exactly.

    Lloyd has played great this year and deserves his pro-bowl spot, but he was a starter at some point for nearly every team he previously played for. He made a few spectacular plays but was consistently inconsistent and routinely alligator armed easy catches and had trouble beating jams at the line of scrimmage.

    You're just bitter because he's an example of yet another player who was an underachiever for the Redskins only to go on and succeed somewhere else.
