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