Avapro Free Sample

By Joe Soriano | Musketfire.com

It seems weird handing out a game ball when the New England Patriots lose, avapro free sample but there are three players in Tom Brady, avapro free sample Brandon Lloyd, avapro free sample and Danny Woodhead who have a legitimate case at winning the award for valiant performance in the near-comeback loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Avapro free sample Even though he didn’t make it to the end zone, avapro free sample Lloyd was instrumental in the Patriots massive second-half offensive effort to put up 31 points against a tough Niners defense.

Brandon Lloyd finally broke out last week against the Houston Texans, avapro free sample and I’m betting strong words from Pats legendary WR Troy Brown helped spurn that. Avapro free sample He played his best game in a Pats uni last night with ten receptions for 190 yards. Avapro free sample He was clearly the most consistent and effective wideout on the Patriots with an average of 10.6 yards per target. Avapro free sample In fact, avapro free sample two-thirds of all the plays he were involved in were deemed successful by SR%.

Tom Brady usually leads the Patriots in the advanced statistics WPA and EPA each week, avapro free sample largely because he is awesome and those two statistics generally favor quarterbacks. Avapro free sample The main reason for that is simple; quarterbacks have the ball the most and have more chances to impact the game.

However, avapro free sample it was Lloyd who led the team in those stats and had a huge impact on the game with a 0.32 WPA and a 14.9 EPA. Avapro free sample Only three quarterbacks have had higher WPA totals so far this week and only four finished with a higher EPA. Avapro free sample Only Andre Johnson had more receptions and a higher WPA at wide receiver, avapro free sample but Brandon Lloyd had him overall with significant advantages in receiving yards and EPA.

Ten catches, avapro free sample 190 receiving yards. Avapro free sample That’s incredible, avapro free sample and he was the deep threat we envisioned him being when he put pen to paper and signed a contract in the offseason with New England. Avapro free sample This game proves that Lloyd hasn’t been a disappointment, avapro free sample because he can stretch the field and have a huge game if the opposing defense doesn’t account for him enough. Avapro free sample The Patriots haven’t gotten Lloyd as involved in the passing game as they did against Houston and SF, avapro free sample and it looks like he will continue to receive major targets. Avapro free sample And you know what? It’s all for the better, avapro free sample especially since he is the best pass-catcher on this team at stretching the field vertically.
