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