New Rams WR Brandon Lloyd has doubts about Tim Tebow
Brandon Lloyd wasn’t all-in with Tim Tebow in Denver and that’s one of the reasons the wide receiver was dealt before the trade deadline.
With Tebow now starting for the Broncos, will get a better idea of who was right in the Mile High City.
Speaking on ESPN Radio in St. Louis, the new Rams wideout questioned if Tebow will succeed “playing formidable opponents” a week after he eked out a victory over the winless Miami Dolphins.
“I don't know. I think only time will tell with that style of play. I think it (was) effective last Sunday, but I just don't know how effective that style can be over the course of long games and playing formidable opponents," Lloyd said, according to the Denver Post.
"The timing is an issue," Lloyd said. "There's just not that much separation that you can get in the NFL. You got a yard on the guy? That is wide open. You got a yard or 2 yards on the guy, you are wide open, but that window . . . you are not open very long.
"Any delay in delivering the ball or any delay (in) not being able to deliver that ball before the separation happens? It just throws a monkey wrench into (the timing) and anything you are trying to accomplish down the field."
The Broncos face the Detroit Lions this Sunday and that certainly presents a more formidable opponent. We’ll see where this heads.
