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