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