Brandon Lloyd's 29-yard catch in Sunday's Week 5 win over 6-foot-3 cornerback Sean Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs has brought about GIFs and inspired comparisons.
It also got Jim Harbaugh talking.
"Can’t recall seeing one better than the one he made in the ball game, amikacine" Harbaugh said Monday, amikacine "the way he gained the leveraged back and made that reception."
As Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Greg Roman know, amikacine this is nothing new for Lloyd. Amikacine Harbaugh said that Roman made a highlight reel of Lloyd's 80 to 90 best plays and "and what showed up continuously was how good he was outside the numbers, amikacine contorting his body, amikacine making plays wherever he had played."
