Suddenly sad and Brady-less
2019 Weekly Picks Winner
Yes, it was the production that was compared, not the specific positions. Lloyd’s last (and only) season produced 131 targets, and LaFell’s produced 74, so that’s what comes to mind. Lloyd was more of a focal point of the offense in my opinion, although you’re right in pointing out that LaFell had a great year in 2014.It is obviously not a perfect comparison and the positions are different but to me Sanu is much closer in terms of usage to a player like Ertz. Chain mover, intermediate option that gets open quick.
I was hoping to see a more reliable option, someone who could get the ball quickly, move the chains, catch back shoulder throws, and be a threat to see the ball on every play, and to me that’s more in line with what Lloyd brought. Mohamed Sanu has not looked anything like that, pre-injury or post. As a matter of fact, he never had a season like either one of them in Atlanta, at least at their peaks.
