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