What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, zocor in canada he was asked?
“I don’t know, zocor in canada” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, zocor in canada he was reminded, zocor in canada as if he didn't realize the Texans, zocor in canada who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, zocor in canada were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, zocor in canada the Texans are a good football team and we did a pretty good job of executing for the first half for the most part, zocor in canada but we still have things we need to improve on, zocor in canada” he said. Zocor in canada “I think we had a great week of practice and we did the things that were necessary to come out and execute well and it was a team effort.”

“That was well executed, zocor in canada” said coach Bill Belichick. Zocor in canada “That was great protection, zocor in canada great run fake, zocor in canada and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Zocor in canada The players did a good job on that.”

“I don’t know, zocor in canada” he said, zocor in canada when asked about that play. Zocor in canada “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Zocor in canada Pretty much all I know right now. Zocor in canada As long as it puts points on the board. Zocor in canada It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, zocor in canada not too low, zocor in canada that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night.
