FOXBORO — A week removed from his one-reception performance in a win at Miami, buy cheap arimidex Brandon Lloyd might have been doing handstands after the Patriots’ 42-14 blowout win over the Houston Texans Monday night at Gillette Stadium.
Lloyd had just resurrected himself with seven catches for 89 yards, buy cheap arimidex including a season-best 37-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady. Buy cheap arimidex He even recovered a fumble in the end zone to cement the game early in the fourth quarter. Buy cheap arimidex 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 cheap arimidex It just wasn’t a big deal.
What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, buy cheap arimidex he was asked?
“I don’t know, buy cheap arimidex” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, buy cheap arimidex he was reminded, buy cheap arimidex as if he didn't realize the Texans, buy cheap arimidex who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, buy cheap arimidex were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, buy cheap arimidex 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 cheap arimidex but we still have things we need to improve on, buy cheap arimidex” he said. Buy cheap arimidex “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 cheap arimidex which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Buy cheap arimidex It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.
At 2:49 of the first quarter, buy cheap arimidex the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, buy cheap arimidex Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Buy cheap arimidex Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, buy cheap arimidex and he was off for the end zone, buy cheap arimidex giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Buy cheap arimidex “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, buy cheap arimidex” he said, buy cheap arimidex “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 cheap arimidex and we were able to take advantage of it.”
“That was well executed, buy cheap arimidex” said coach Bill Belichick. Buy cheap arimidex “That was great protection, buy cheap arimidex great run fake, buy cheap arimidex and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Buy cheap arimidex The players did a good job on that.”
Not only was it big for the team, buy cheap arimidex but also for Lloyd. Buy cheap arimidex A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, buy cheap arimidex capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Buy cheap arimidex 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 cheap arimidex and even his ability to mesh with Brady, buy cheap arimidex so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Buy cheap arimidex Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Buy cheap arimidex He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, buy cheap arimidex either. Buy cheap arimidex “I don’t know how many yards I had.”
As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, buy cheap arimidex we’re just executing the plays. Buy cheap arimidex I haven’t seen the film, buy cheap arimidex but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”
Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, buy cheap arimidex though, buy cheap arimidex and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, buy cheap arimidex only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, buy cheap arimidex Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.
“I don’t know, buy cheap arimidex” he said, buy cheap arimidex when asked about that play. Buy cheap arimidex “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Buy cheap arimidex Pretty much all I know right now. Buy cheap arimidex As long as it puts points on the board. Buy cheap arimidex It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, buy cheap arimidex not too low, buy cheap arimidex that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Buy cheap arimidex We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Buy cheap arimidex “I don’t know. Buy cheap arimidex I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, buy cheap arimidex” he said.
