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