This might be a bit of a honda as it is mentioned in the waiver wire 3 pickups, but I feel it deserves it own topic. Are the performances these guys had this week a one week lucky break, or a sign of good production going forward? If you like both of them the rest of the way out, do you like one more than another? Why?

Lloyd - Always seemed like he could make some amazing acrobatic catches, but that he had a 2 cent brain and poor attitude. I think he has a pretty solid starting position with the Bears and their poor WR core. Orton is his QB though. I haven't watched much of the Bears this year, but in the past they haven't had much of a passing game. Has it changed?

Bryant - Again, a talented guy with a pea for a brain and a poor defiant attitude. He replaced an injured (and malcontent?) Joey Galloway in the lineup. Griese is in at QB and threw an incredible 67 times on Sunday. TB does seem to like to throw deep with regularity, (Galloway always torches someone and ruins my week each year). I don't know if Griese is the answer at QB, (probably not), or if Bryant will remain in the lineup.

THoughts?

 
I'm going to go out on a limb and say the Bucs won't average 67 passing attempts per game from here on out, so I think Bryant is the more likely flash in the pan.

 
I think Lloyd will be Option 1 and 1A at WR for the Bears. Ron Turner coached him al Illinois and has big man love for him. I think the staff wants Lloyd to succeed and will give him every opportunity to.

That said, Lloyd is not someone who will consistantly get open against #1 CBs so temper the expectations there. I think he makes a decent WR3 candidate.

 
If Bryant is filling in at Galloway's position, he should have value.. much like the arguement for Holgrem's Seahawks system that certain positions are featured with a certain amount of targets, Gruden's system is the same.. He's a very WR friendly coach.... Galloway will be the main guy when he comes back though..

I think I might disagree solely on one thing. Galloway's health. If Galloway comes back healthy, then Bryant is more likely the flash in the pan. If Galloway does not, then Bryant should be more useful than Lloyd. TB at least has a history of the past few seasons (Galloway and Clayton) of having a top WR that was good. From 2004-2007, the TB #1 has ranked 13th, 5th, 15th and 21st. In the same period, the Chicago #1 has ranked 52nd, 37th, 30th and 26th. So even a hobbled older 2007 Galloway beat out a healthy 2007 Berrian.Lloyd isn't TO or Moss, i.e. a great WR changing scenery, so I would think that yesterday was an anomaly. Also, I have to think that defenses may actually now pay attention to a specific WR, which I would doubt they were. If Bryant takes the #1 WR slot in TB and Galloway misses significant time (and retires this year?), Bryant should easily best Lloyd.
