Brandon Lloyd, the new number one in Denver
With the exodus of Marshall to Miami, Denver was left with a glaring question as to who was going to catch the ball in Denver. With the previous season's woes in the run game, Denver was in need of a threat at the wide receiver position. Lloyd Stepped up in a big way.
On the year, he had 77 receptions for 1,448 yards and 11 touchdowns. This was good enough to lead the league in receiving yards. After a long journey around the league, it appears he has found a home in Denver.
If these numbers continue on this trend, things should be looking up in Denver. Also worthy of note, The NFL Network in all their wisdom and compulsions to create lists, has come out with the top players of 2011 as voted by the players. Marshall was voted No. 61 while Lloyd was voted No. 58.
But as usual, this is just one writer's opinion, what's yours? Drop a line and as always, thanks for posting.
