Buy bcaa cod Two touchdowns in the biggest game of the season and Lloyd acted like he’d done nothing more than buy a can of Coke at 7-Eleven. Buy bcaa cod It just wasn’t a big deal.
What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, buy bcaa cod he was asked?
“I don’t know, buy bcaa cod” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, buy bcaa cod he was reminded, buy bcaa cod as if he didn't realize the Texans, buy bcaa cod who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, buy bcaa cod were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, buy bcaa cod the Texans are a good football team and we did a pretty good job of executing for the first half for the most part, buy bcaa cod but we still have things we need to improve on, buy bcaa cod” he said. Buy bcaa cod “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.”
Lloyd was obviously practicing the Patriots’ way of saying something but saying nothing, buy bcaa cod which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Buy bcaa cod It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.
At 2:49 of the first quarter, buy bcaa cod the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, buy bcaa cod Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Buy bcaa cod Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, buy bcaa cod and he was off for the end zone, buy bcaa cod giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Buy bcaa cod “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, buy bcaa cod” he said, buy bcaa cod “and we worked hard on that all week and when the opportunity presented itself and coach (Josh) McDaniels called it at the right time, buy bcaa cod and we were able to take advantage of it.”
“That was well executed, buy bcaa cod” said coach Bill Belichick. Buy bcaa cod “That was great protection, buy bcaa cod great run fake, buy bcaa cod and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Buy bcaa cod The players did a good job on that.”
Not only was it big for the team, buy bcaa cod but also for Lloyd. Buy bcaa cod A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, buy bcaa cod capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Buy bcaa cod In the first six games of the season he came up with 34.
There were questions about his ability to create separation from defenders, buy bcaa cod and even his ability to mesh with Brady, buy bcaa cod so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Buy bcaa cod Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Buy bcaa cod He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, buy bcaa cod either. Buy bcaa cod “I don’t know how many yards I had.”
As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, buy bcaa cod we’re just executing the plays. Buy bcaa cod I haven’t seen the film, buy bcaa cod but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”
Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, buy bcaa cod though, buy bcaa cod and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, buy bcaa cod only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, buy bcaa cod Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.
“I don’t know, buy bcaa cod” he said, buy bcaa cod when asked about that play. Buy bcaa cod “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Buy bcaa cod Pretty much all I know right now. Buy bcaa cod As long as it puts points on the board. Buy bcaa cod It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, buy bcaa cod not too low, buy bcaa cod that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Buy bcaa cod We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Buy bcaa cod “I don’t know. Buy bcaa cod I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, buy bcaa cod” he said.
