Buy zerit cod Two touchdowns in the biggest game of the season and Lloyd acted like he’d done nothing more than buy a can of Coke at 7-Eleven. Buy zerit cod It just wasn’t a big deal.
What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, buy zerit cod he was asked?
“I don’t know, buy zerit cod” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, buy zerit cod he was reminded, buy zerit cod as if he didn't realize the Texans, buy zerit cod who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, buy zerit cod were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, buy zerit cod the Texans are a good football team and we did a pretty good job of executing for the first half for the most part, buy zerit cod but we still have things we need to improve on, buy zerit cod” he said. Buy zerit cod “I think we had a great week of practice and we did the things that were necessary to come out and execute well and it was a team effort.”
Lloyd was obviously practicing the Patriots’ way of saying something but saying nothing, buy zerit cod which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Buy zerit cod It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.
At 2:49 of the first quarter, buy zerit cod the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, buy zerit cod Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Buy zerit cod Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, buy zerit cod and he was off for the end zone, buy zerit cod giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Buy zerit cod “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, buy zerit cod” he said, buy zerit cod “and we worked hard on that all week and when the opportunity presented itself and coach (Josh) McDaniels called it at the right time, buy zerit cod and we were able to take advantage of it.”
“That was well executed, buy zerit cod” said coach Bill Belichick. Buy zerit cod “That was great protection, buy zerit cod great run fake, buy zerit cod and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Buy zerit cod The players did a good job on that.”
Not only was it big for the team, buy zerit cod but also for Lloyd. Buy zerit cod A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, buy zerit cod capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Buy zerit cod In the first six games of the season he came up with 34.
There were questions about his ability to create separation from defenders, buy zerit cod and even his ability to mesh with Brady, buy zerit cod so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Buy zerit cod Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Buy zerit cod He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, buy zerit cod either. Buy zerit cod “I don’t know how many yards I had.”
As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, buy zerit cod we’re just executing the plays. Buy zerit cod I haven’t seen the film, buy zerit cod but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”
Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, buy zerit cod though, buy zerit cod and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, buy zerit cod only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, buy zerit cod Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.
“I don’t know, buy zerit cod” he said, buy zerit cod when asked about that play. Buy zerit cod “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Buy zerit cod Pretty much all I know right now. Buy zerit cod As long as it puts points on the board. Buy zerit cod It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, buy zerit cod not too low, buy zerit cod that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Buy zerit cod We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Buy zerit cod “I don’t know. Buy zerit cod I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, buy zerit cod” he said.
