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