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