Watch Video: Patriots GameDay: Things To Know About Brandon Lloyd
BOSTON (CBS) – Getting to know Brandon Lloyd, diet pills I found out some interesting things about the Patriots receiver.
If he wasn’t playing football, diet pills he would be smack dab in front of the camera. Diet pills He loves television broadcasting, diet pills and those are his plans after football. Diet pills After all, diet pills he majored in journalism at the University of Illinois.
And don’t automatically think he’ll he’ll end up as just another talking head on Sunday mornings, diet pills although he could easily do that. Diet pills Lloyd wouldn’t mind hosting Entertainment Tonight if given the chance.
But for now, diet pills he’ll stick with catching the football, diet pills no matter what it means for his body. Diet pills Lloyd is one of those unique receivers that sacrifices his body at any cost. Diet pills 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, diet pills Lloyd has just one thing in mind when the ball is thrown his way: moving the chains.
“When I was younger, diet pills a lot of the established receivers would rather not catch the ball if they weren’t in a position to catch and run. Diet pills I would rather catch the ball at all costs, diet pills” Lloyd told me in our sit down for Patriots GameDay this Sunday. Diet pills “I want to get the field advancement. Diet pills That’s the only thing on my mind. Diet pills I’m not trying to catch and run or do anything else, diet pills 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. Diet pills The two of them have a unique relationship that is still growing. Diet pills In fact, diet pills 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, diet pills and make sure I’m seeing what he’s seeing, diet pills” said Lloyd. Diet pills “There’s been a time before the game and he pulled me in there. Diet pills ‘Let’s run this this way, diet pills’ and I said alright. Diet pills That’s how we do it. Diet pills That’s the kind of game I’ve always wanted to play, diet pills because it’s so much beyond backyard football. Diet pills Everything we do is so purposeful; it may be last minute but it’s purposeful.”
After a two touchdown day in London, diet pills Lloyd is now gearing up for Buffalo following the Patriots bye.
