Brandon Lloyd or Stevie Johnson WHIR

Postby VTKombat » Sat Sep 08, 2012 8:37 am

I'm stuck on what to do with my WR3 situation. I have Marques Colston and Jordy Nelson as 1 and 2. So Stevie Johnson or Brandon Lloyd I know Stevie will play through his groin problem but he's also facing revis. Brandon Lloyd didnt show much in preseason though and he makes me nervous. I'm sure a lot of people got screwed by the promise of chad johnson with the pats last year and I hope Lloyd wont be the same.

Id go Lloyd for sure.

McDaniels knows how to use Lloyd. He will call his number and I like his chances of making a play with Brady delivering the ball and likely facing 1 on 1 coverages with the likes of welker gronkowski n Hernandez commanding attention.

Stevie Johnson facing Revis is a big issue, and I'd be more concerned about that than his groin problems. He will probably play, but I just don't see him being very effective.

I would not let Brandon Lloyd's preseason have any sway on your decision at all. Belichick is known for hiding talent and various schemes in the preseason.

Gronkowski had 1 catch for 7 yards in all of the 2011 preseason.

In 2007 Randy Moss had 1 catch for 9 yards for all of the preseason before going 1500 yds/23 tds in the regular season.

McDaniels and Belichick already know what they have in Lloyd. They aren't going to give any hints in the preseason. Start him.

I'd go with Lloyd. I don't buy that Stevie has Revis' number

Lend a hand?
