It has been a subject of much discussion on these boards and this website for five years, yet the reality has always been the same.
Michael Floyd has everything you want in a number one wide receiver.
Michael Floyd plays like a number one receiver about five to seven times a year.
On Saturday night, the New England Patriots were welcomed to the other side of the Michael Floyd experience.
Floyd finished the game with one catch on three targets for nine yards.
His modest stat line was not the only issue, something Arizona Cardinals fans are all too familiar with.
Floyd struggled in the other facets of the game was well, getting an offensive pass interference call and being mostly a guy who didn’t look like he belonged.
It prompted a strong out pouring on Twitter from Arizona Cardinals fans and reports, as well as bewildered New England Patriots fans and their media.
@FaithR8s Also, that first INT was all on Michael Floyd. He shouldn't even be dressed. He needs an off-season to develop chemistry w/ Tom— Jeremy Gallagher (@ProRel_is_LIFE) January 16, 2017
Malcolm Mitchell is a strength. Michael Floyd is a liability. Need Mitchell back next Sunday.— NewEnglandSBLI (@NewEnglandSBLI) January 15, 2017
Michael Floyd, who is obviously point shaving tonight, might be seeing a lot of playing time... https://t.co/jaavKHaVqV— John Karalis (@RedsArmy_John) January 15, 2017
Michael Floyd was bad before he came to New England. Then he chose to wear No. 14 and that was all she wrote.— Matt Harmon (@MattHarmon_BYB) January 15, 2017

Prediction: If Malcolm Mitchell can play next week (pending Pats win), Michael Floyd will be inactive.— Ryan Hannable (@RyanHannable) January 15, 2017
Michael Floyd is having a terrible night— trey wingo (@wingoz) January 15, 2017
Michael Floyd really asleep at the wheel in this one.— Dan Hanzus (@DanHanzus) January 15, 2017
Not a good game by Michael Floyd.— Doug Kyed (@DougKyed) January 15, 2017
Michael Floyd doesn't exactly fight for the ball, does he?— Tony Massarotti (@TonyMassarotti) January 15, 2017
Michael Floyd cost Tom Brady a pick.— Jeff Howe (@jeffphowe) January 15, 2017
Some people know me though:
Welcome to the Michael Floyd experience, Patriots.
I fully expect a 4 catch 83 yards and two touchdowns performance from Floyd here in the next couple of games... If the Pats make it that far.
