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