It seems weird handing out a game ball when the New England Patriots lose, buy discount stress gum but there are three players in Tom Brady, buy discount stress gum Brandon Lloyd, buy discount stress gum and Danny Woodhead who have a legitimate case at winning the award for valiant performance in the near-comeback loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Buy discount stress gum Even though he didn’t make it to the end zone, buy discount stress gum Lloyd was instrumental in the Patriots massive second-half offensive effort to put up 31 points against a tough Niners defense.

Brandon Lloyd finally broke out last week against the Houston Texans, buy discount stress gum and I’m betting strong words from Pats legendary WR Troy Brown helped spurn that. Buy discount stress gum He played his best game in a Pats uni last night with ten receptions for 190 yards. Buy discount stress gum He was clearly the most consistent and effective wideout on the Patriots with an average of 10.6 yards per target. Buy discount stress gum In fact, buy discount stress gum two-thirds of all the plays he were involved in were deemed successful by SR%.

Tom Brady usually leads the Patriots in the advanced statistics WPA and EPA each week, buy discount stress gum largely because he is awesome and those two statistics generally favor quarterbacks. Buy discount stress gum The main reason for that is simple; quarterbacks have the ball the most and have more chances to impact the game.

However, buy discount stress gum it was Lloyd who led the team in those stats and had a huge impact on the game with a 0.32 WPA and a 14.9 EPA. Buy discount stress gum Only three quarterbacks have had higher WPA totals so far this week and only four finished with a higher EPA. Buy discount stress gum Only Andre Johnson had more receptions and a higher WPA at wide receiver, buy discount stress gum but Brandon Lloyd had him overall with significant advantages in receiving yards and EPA.

Ten catches, buy discount stress gum 190 receiving yards. Buy discount stress gum That’s incredible, buy discount stress gum and he was the deep threat we envisioned him being when he put pen to paper and signed a contract in the offseason with New England. Buy discount stress gum This game proves that Lloyd hasn’t been a disappointment, buy discount stress gum because he can stretch the field and have a huge game if the opposing defense doesn’t account for him enough. Buy discount stress gum The Patriots haven’t gotten Lloyd as involved in the passing game as they did against Houston and SF, buy discount stress gum and it looks like he will continue to receive major targets. Buy discount stress gum And you know what? It’s all for the better, buy discount stress gum especially since he is the best pass-catcher on this team at stretching the field vertically.
