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