After his best season in an eight year career; a season in which he accumulated nearly half of his career reception yardage Brandon Lloyd has been voted second-team All-Pro by the Associated Press.
Talk about dropping the ball guys, seriously…
Lloyd is joined as a wide receiver on the second-team by the Detroit Lions Calvin Johnson. Beating both of them out were the Indianapolis Colts Reggie Wayne and Atlanta Falcons Roddy White. Lloyd bested both of them in every single category except receptions (which is the most telling statistic of all).
Lloyd finished the season with 1,448 yards receiving on 77 receptions with a 18.8-yards per reception average, 11 touchdowns, and and unlimited amount of fantasy football owners who were smart enough to pick him up off the waiver wire at any point in the season.
Cornerback Champ Bailey was the only other Bronco to receive any All-Pro votes (2, thank you Lindsay and Woody). For a complete list of the 2011 All-Pro team check it out here.
Somewhere in a bar in Downtown Manhattan there is a large group of people anxiously awaiting your next season Brandon, so that we can do our best Jeremy Piven on Entourage impression. Say it with my guys, one last time for 2010 at the top of your lungs, “LLLLOOOOOYYYDDDD!!!!”
