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.
