Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Lloyd was probably the brightest spot on an otherwise dark 2010 Broncos season. Broncos fans can how him they appreciate his efforts by sending their votes his way.

Lloyd is nominated for the VIZIO Top Value Performer award, nominated of players each year who outperform their contract and determined by the fans’ online vote. More below – 

This coveted award recognizes the players whose on-field performances most exceeded the value of their 2010 contract. With a salary of just $755,000, Lloyd was an easy choice for this honor as he ran for (ahem… received for) 1,448 yards and had a career high of 11 receiving touchdowns.

Other nominees for the 2010 VIZIO Top Value Performer award are Cleveland RB Peyton Hillis, Pittsburgh LB LaMarr Woodley, Buffalo WR Stevie Johnson and New York RB Ahmad Bradshaw. The winner of this is award is determined by a public online fan vote held at www.TopValuePerformer.com. Voting is open now and will close at midnight on Sunday, January 23rd

Ironically, in years past, the Broncos’ nominee has been the man Lloyd replaced — Brandon Marshall.

Get your votes in before Sunday!

    There is no reason for the intrusive information they require in order to vote. He'll get my vote in spirit.

  • http://broncotalk.net Kyle

    It's a bit confusing, but they actually only need name and email for the vote itself. Uncheck the box too.

    That's still too much to vote IMO, but felt Lloyd deserved the risk of (more) spam mail.

  • MrEast

    I agree, when I first received the email I thought it was a phishing scam.

    I absolutely loved Brandon Lloyd's season.

  • Elaine

    Brandon had a season that demonstrated talent, timing and perservance can equal success. Shine on dude!

  • 5280

    next year, lloydd coupled with the 2 rookies and tebow might be pretty decent. i'm really looking forward to that, but they have to do soemthing about their running game 1st.

  • NMBronc

    The quality of his QB made this an extra special season for him.

  • ETL

    Very true having such an excellent QB helped things out a ton.

  • mikebirty

    no can do, it only allows a birth year as early as 1900!!!

  • TheTroglodyte

    Since there isn't much to report on the Broncos how about an article on Jay Cutler's sissy ass performance in the NFC Championship game that has half the players in the league calling him a wuss on Twitter?

  • Lookn4H20

    I am so glad we got rid of Jay “crybaby” Cutler he might have blown his only chance to make it to a super bowl.And on top of that he had NFL players calling him a little bitch. Jay you SUCK!!!!!

  • td30ismvp

    I know right? I mean if one of you tore their knee ligament you would be put on light duty but you would be back to work minutes after it happened. He is such a little girl for not going out their and having 300 pound guys hit his knee, I mean what did it matter it was his left knee and he was throwing off his back foot anyway right? I am not a Cutler fan since he cried his way out of Denver but his “toughness” was never an issue, he played through Diabetes (undiagnosed), he played through getting sacked 9 times (never complaining) until his concussion kept him out of the game. His knee was unstable and if you can't move in the pocket or plant and throw exactly what was he supposed to do?

  • Paradisimo

    Edit: “sprained” MCL. 1-2 week recovery. Tebow played an entire game as a sophomore in high school with a broken leg. Heck, even Kyle Orton came back last season and played with a bad knee after Chris Simms couldn't shoulder the load. When someone is playing for a chance to go to the SUPER BOWL I do question their toughness when a sprained MCL sidelines them. I actually find it more plausible that Lovie Smith used the knee as an excuse to bench him for his awful play prior to that .

  • stav

    Someone should mention to Urlacher that his favorite Hall of Famer, Gale Sayers, played a season most likely WITHOUT cartilage in his knee, a poorly repaired MCL, and a frayed ACL, according to a few doctors who checked his old xrays. He had knee replacement I think two years ago, when they opened the knee up there's was no mcl, no cartilage, and DUST, DUST i repeat, made up from bone on bone friction. And the guy was still exercising everyday.

    A sprained MCL?!?!?! Come on man, you got a trip to the Super Bowl, and a sprained MCL kept him out? Bullshit. The guy is a p***y, and unfortunately, he has put his teammates in a situation where they have to defend his crap. I read somewhere that some anonymous Bears were questioning the extent of the injury. Sorry, but the guy didn't need a stretcher, brace, wheelchair, crutches, no ice bags to minimize swelling, and he just stayed on the sidelines. Championship QB's eat the pain and go back in. I hate HATE to say it, but that asshole in San Diego played with a TORN acl. I know he had a week off before playing, but it was a TORN ACL. No excuses, the guy quit, or quit without trying to tough it out. His team needed him more than any moment this season and he called it a day quickly.

  • flbronc

    how bad he is hurt inst the point of this post, how he handled it is. from what i have seen and read, he made no effort to keep himself in the game. if you return to the sidelines, be interested in the game, not on the bench pouting. you are the starting qb- get a headset and be keyed in on what the offense is doing. you may also want to help out your backup(s) by sharing a little knowledge- it's kind of a big game. you're hurt- fine, go to the locker room. if you can come out, come out and be a part of it however you can- hell just be a cheerleader. he didnt do any of that, and i think that is why people are on him… it's why i am glad he is gone.

  • Fan From Spain

    you said it flbronc. OK your hurt but at least help your 3rd QB and be a part of the team. The guy is selfish and was looking forward to the off season already. screw him. sorry Bear fans.

  • crazykid

    Who else was impressed and proud of our Caleb Hannie outplaying Cutler? He made CSU proud yesterday

  • Stav

    TRU DAT fibronc. Most games, you'd see a qb demonstratively arguing, pleading, yelling to go back into the game, and we're talking regular season. I'm not saying this guy's a headcase, he's just a cherrypicker. When things are going great, he's in the front leading. The moment things turn south, he's gone, lost, not a peep, just maybe a sulk, definitely no comeback spirit in that dog.

    I'm not afraid to say, i was actually giggling a little bit like a little school girl when I saw the way Cutler, CHOSE, yes CHOSE to go out. The guy's a marshmellow, completely soft and melts away fast under to much heat.

  • CJ

    i tore my mcl My junior year in highschool and finished the game! Hes a fag! Not only that but hes standing on the sidelines and walking with that same asshole expression on his face!

  • TheTroglodyte

    Yeah a couple years ago Philip Rivers had emergency surgery two days before the championship game against NE. Than had to go back to surgery the day after to get the real work done. Cutler has no heart.

  • Kawike

    Don't know if anybody else saw this or not, but I was blown away. According to ESPN stats, Brandon Lloyd made a first down on 72 out of his 77 catches this season. That's 93.5%! Its also the highest conversion rate in the last 10 years. Here's the link: http://espn.go.com/blog/afcwes

    Oh, and Cutler's a spiritless wuss.

  • 5280

    i agree td30. yall yap ur mouths like you know what really happened. you dont nore will you ever. the man left the game in the 3rd quarter but he was hurt since the 1st. because of that mcl he threw 2 interceptions and kept missing hester and knox but a LARGE margin because he couldn't plant and throw. Trog and stav, true rivers finished the game, but did they win? no! hell no! and one of the reasons is because rivers couldn't do shit! his knee was so bad that he couldn't plant, run, or even stand there without grimicing. so whats the better situation? puttin a injured starting QB in there who cant hit his recievers and keeps throwing fly balls because of the pain, or putting in a second or 3rd stringer who's healthy that can at least put the team on the board? And stav, ur tight about gale sayers, but do you know how long sayers played? 6 years! becasue he would pay attention to his injuries he had to retire WAY early. you could say he made the decision himself but the “DUST' in his knee probably had something to do with it. If you u play injured your worth nothing and the affect it can have on the future of your. career can be catastrophic. yes brady played all year with a broken fott, but where did that get him? booted out of the playoffs in the 1st round and then surgery. CJn how long ago, exactly was highschool?? and one MCL sprain. your gonna act like your an expert on football injuries when u had one MCL sprain back in highschool. get real! anyone who has ever had multiple MCL or ACL injuries can tell you that every single one is different from the other. and stav it's funny how you say cutlers a pussy for poutin about an MCL but rivers' ACL is SOOOOOOOOOO much different even though right next to eachother and they are essentially the same type of body structure they're just in different locations. Rivers is a charger folks. remember that when your engulfed in your haterid of cutler. LET IT GO. culter isn't here anymore and denver made a mistake. end of story. whats even more amusing is you cutler haters weren't cutler haters when he was here and we had shannahan. but suddenly McD ruins everything and now you hate cutler. you guys keep looking more sorry everyday with this cutler hatin bullshit. none of you are actually “glad he is gone”, your still hurt that he was traded. but take it out on the guys who deserves it. McD is the real reason for your frustration. not cutler. quit misplacing ur anger. but you there both gone now so quit dwelling on the past. its time to think, Fox, Tebow, Lloyd, Draft, Free Agents, Elway, rebuilding a once proud franchise. Those mistakes are in the past and we need to leave it there.

  • stav

    Wow – none of that above really takes away from the fact that he called it a day. The Sayers point was that HE DIDN'T QUIT, that guy kept playing his heart out with a shitty Bears team and with easily more pain. The point about Rivers was that win or lose, with a MUCH WORSE INJURY, he gave his team a chance and he refused to go out that way in the playoffs. Please, Cutler looked like he was too busy feeling sad for himself instead of putting it all on the line. I don't give a shit what anyone else says, in my head he's no winner and is not willing to put everything on the line for his team. Anyone got a problem with that? Tough shit, this is about my opinion, and the guy is soft and a prima donna without doing anything in his career.

  • stav

    I'm also refraining from defending Rivers and Cutler, because we all know stat and record-wise there is no comparison. I won't say anymore as i have to go puke from the little defense i just put up for that SD asshole.

    No offense, but taking joy in Cutler's shitty day is something that's been happening nationwide apparently. That has nothing to do with the 2011 Broncos, its just some good old fashioned schadenfreude. What, are we not allowed to comment on what happened to the playoffs? Gimme a break and stop PMSessing over a few Cutler rants, grow up, there's thousands of us enjoying this which has nothing to do with our upcoming season.
