There is no doubt in my sick mind that the only reason the Denver Broncos traded Brandon Lloyd to the St. Louis Rams for a conditional pick was to HELP Tim Tebow fail so that Denver could start rebuilding, and make a run at that coveted #1 pick: Andrew Luck
Not only was Brandon Lloyd Denver’s best receiver but he is one of the best receivers in the game. Lloyd LED THE NFL in receiving yards last year where he had more yards (in a passing league) than Larry Fitzgerald, Calvin Johnson, Andrew Johnson, Roddy White, Greg Jennings Mike Wallace…etc… EVERYBODY. Why would you just get rid of a guy that is that good especially when you have a new quarterback coming in? Does John Elway really know that Tim Tebow and Brandon lloyd wouldn’t have been dangerous together? On top of that Denver is heavily shopping Eddie Royal (Denver’s 2nd best receiver) and many others on their team.
“I think everybody is for sale in Denver, ” said NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi. “They might as well take a billboard out and announce they will trade their whole team.”
Now we all know how Denver’s executive vice president of football operations and front office decision maker John Elway feels about Tim Tebow. It the same way I feel about asparagus. I hate it, don’t want to see it, can’t stand to look at for more than 5 seconds, and if for some reason I eat it – I just start pissing/throwing up all over the place. Think about it, even when Tebow had that second half against the Chargers last week and Denver fans were more pumped then when they take E; all John Elway talked about the next day was how badly he felt for Kyle Orton because nobody gave him a chance. On record, Elway has never mentioned anything positive about Tebow, not once.
It is also no secret that John Elway goes to every Stanford football game and loves Andrew Luck, who does attend the same school as Elway: Stanford. Yup, Elway is a Stanford alum who would only like to play with 3 naked strippers more than Andrew Luck on his football field. Luck who is considered a “Can’t Miss” first overall pick, which personally don’t buy into that whole “can’t miss” prospect unless Kurt Radomski is their personal trainer, would fit that “pocket passer” mold that Elways wants in Denver.
Tim Tebow is not who Elway wants and it is no shocker that Elway along with his fat puppet John Fox (in terms of front office decisions) is going to do everything in his power to make sure Denver rebuilds. Now Tim Tebow has to prove Elway wrong with a stacked receiving core of Eric Decker, a rehabbed Demaryius Thomas (from an achilles injury and broken pinky finger not crack), a shitty Matthew Willis and a receiver who Adam Schefter reported Elway is also heavily shopping in Eddie Royal.
Now Denver and Elway will tell you that they traded Brandon Lloyd because his contract was up after the season so they wanted to receive something for him before he left town. Which makes sense if you’re quarterback is JaMarcus Russel. You still don’t know what Tebow can do, so why get ride of your best offensive player. Fact is Elways has no FAITH in Tebow, and don’t want to be stuck with him for another 2-3 years. So what Elway did was get rid of his best weapon for a pick, and start rebuilding.
If Elway even had .00000000001% faith in Tebow he would have waited until after the season to see how Tebow and Lloyd worked, and even if Lloyd ended up ducking Denver could have received a compensatory pick for Lloyd two years from now. But no ELWAY IS IN REBUILDING MODE WITHOUT EVEN SEEING WHAT DENVER HAS ON THE FIELD.
You don’t see other expendable receivers whose contracts are up after this season getting traded (Reggie Wayne, Danny Amendola, Bernard Berrian, Marques Colston, Dwayne Bowe…etc)
Now some disagree with my logic saying that Elway made this move to help Tebow by “clearing the air” since Brandon Lloyd is such a fan/ good friend of Ortons. But I don’t buy any of that. You don’t help a quarterback by taking away a guy WHO LEAD THE NFL IN RECEIVING YARDS LAST YEAR. At the end of the day, if Elway can get what he wants it would be this: Tebow to suck, Denver to suck, Denver to get the #1 overall pick, and Andrew Luck to show up in his office in a bra, panties, and a mountain dew.
