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