one of the problems is the Lloyd signing. He really is duplication of what Wes, Edelman, Branch are which is short to intermediate routes. If the Lloyd money was spent on a WR that could get down field and make plays, the other options for Brady would be even more deadly. The Ravens did not have to bother covering anything deeper than 10 yards.
I have yet to see a catch by Lloyd that he has 5 yards after the catch, and Wes on his long catch against the Ravens should have been able to take it to the end zone, but he was caught from behind.
Wallace is a waste of time due to $$$. Ditto Bowe. You have to think Avery or some one like him. Giants found Victor Cruz for virtually no money, so players are out there with out spending big.
I can live with a group of Gronk, Hernandez, Ballard, Huma, Lloyd, Edelman, Avery, Slater next year.
The elephant in the room, as I have been widely criticized for mentioning in the past is that BB the GM did no favors for BB the coach.
Watching Gregory trying to cover, Lloyd tripping over his own feet, Cole trying to cover, 2nd rd draft chopice Wilson not able to get on the field, Fells unable to get open....poor job by BB last off season...this off season needs to be better
