At long last there are negative reports on Brandon Lloyd of the Patriots. Now the buzz has developed into a low murmur that states he is disliked by everyone.
Well, we expected that anyone who took Ochocinco's number was asking for trouble. To put icing on the cupcake, Lloyd did not make many catches in many games. It certainly brought back the deju vu feeling for fans and Tom Brady.
Now coaches and players, unnamed with their knives in the dark, are complaining that Brandon is "different" and apparently moody. Heaven forefend; what was Josh McDaniels thinking when he vouched for this loose cannon.
Details on the sins of Lloyd are not enumerated in any specificity by accusers. Stabbed in the back never was a spotlight sport.
Whatever Brandon Lloyd did to deserve this bad press will be paid for when he finds himself next season with yet another team. Alas, this time his offensive coordinator will not be the one requesting a contract for him.
Despite happy noises all season from fellow offensive receivers, Lloyd lost respect when he collapsed into a heap the moment he caught the ball. The deadly media put him in the cross-hairs for not running for a few more yards.
If the truth be spoken in a humor piece, for many games it looked like Tom Brady was stretching his game plan to toss one to Brandon, even at the cost of missing other more reliable, open men.
Randy Moss is not walking through that door, fans, but Brandon Lloyd may be walking out.
