Lloyd Still a T.O. Wannabe

Brandon Lloyd, like Terrell Owens, was a mid-round receiver who the 49ers had high hopes for. And like Owens, Lloyd can’t really hang on to a football, either, which is why he is wallowing at the end of the Redskins bench.

In one last gasp to be like Owens, Lloyd has decided to bring up the old rumors that Troy Aikman is gay in a recent interview. Lloyd was upset with Aikman was critical of the enigmatic receiver's talent for dropping footballs. So Lloyd called him gay. But if thinking Lloyd sucks makes you gay, then 100 percent of the football viewing audience is flaming. Because Lloyd is just tearing up the league with one reception for nine yards.

Owens, for all of his faults, has actually accomplished something in his career -- the took the urban Rex Grossman to a Super Bowl. And when he picked a fight with Jeff Garcia, he chose somebody at his skill level. So instead of calling out a Hall-of-Fame quarterback with three Super Bowl rings, maybe Lloyd should have called out somebody commiserate with his own skill level. Like Kordell Stewart.

Or if Lloyd really wants to be like T.O., he can just go break his leg.

I thought we were told repeatedly that there isn't such a thing as a gay football player...

Did anyone else catch the on-air banter between Aikman and Kenny Albert during Sunday's game at Green Bay? It was downright bizarre, mostly because Trot actually seemed to be encouraging it.

They started talking about how Jason Campbell dropped by Favre's house uninvited during the summer to say hello. Albert says something like, "So do you ever have any young quarterbacks dropping by your place Troy?" Aikman's reply, without a pause, "I sure wish!"

Later, while a tech guy was wiping moisture off the lens of the satellite cam, Aikman started talking with Kenny (though it soon became a monologue) about how much he'd like a satellite cam on his property and about all the things we'd see.

"Know what I'm talkin' about, Ken?" said Aikman.

Long, long, uncomfortable silence.

Again, the striking aspect of this was that Aikman seemed to be encouraging it... was even having fun with it.

Me? I couldn't believe my ears.

He did, like seven years ago.

Nice pull Seitz.

Now I'm off to pull some footage because if Aikman really said that stuff, I need to find that video.

That happened while I was at U of I not studying for my law school classes.

Do it. My quotes aren't exact (the actual conversation is probably much better) but you'll find the parts I mentioned. The "young quarterbacks" bit was probably early in the game, and the sat cam is a little later.

Don't crack open a Mountain Dew beforehand or you will hose the video monitor.
