But for now, buy diflucan he’ll stick with catching the football, buy diflucan no matter what it means for his body. Buy diflucan Lloyd is one of those unique receivers that sacrifices his body at any cost. Buy diflucan We’ve already seen it several times this year; his touchdown catch against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3 and a sprawling sideline attempt in Seattle are just a couple examples.
After all, buy diflucan Lloyd has just one thing in mind when the ball is thrown his way: moving the chains.
“When I was younger, buy diflucan a lot of the established receivers would rather not catch the ball if they weren’t in a position to catch and run. Buy diflucan I would rather catch the ball at all costs, buy diflucan” Lloyd told me in our sit down for Patriots GameDay this Sunday. Buy diflucan “I want to get the field advancement. Buy diflucan That’s the only thing on my mind. Buy diflucan I’m not trying to catch and run or do anything else, buy diflucan I just want to catch the ball no matter how I do it.”
Of course it helps when he has a guy like “Tom Terrific” firing the football his way. Buy diflucan The two of them have a unique relationship that is still growing. Buy diflucan In fact, buy diflucan Brady has no problem grabbing Lloyd at any time during the day to watch film together.
“He’ll pull me in randomly during the day to watch film, buy diflucan and make sure I’m seeing what he’s seeing, buy diflucan” said Lloyd. Buy diflucan “There’s been a time before the game and he pulled me in there. Buy diflucan ‘Let’s run this this way, buy diflucan’ and I said alright. Buy diflucan That’s how we do it. Buy diflucan That’s the kind of game I’ve always wanted to play, buy diflucan because it’s so much beyond backyard football. Buy diflucan Everything we do is so purposeful; it may be last minute but it’s purposeful.”
After a two touchdown day in London, buy diflucan Lloyd is now gearing up for Buffalo following the Patriots bye.
