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