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