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