Cialis Soft Tabs

The takeaway from Brandon Lloyd‘s performance Sunday was obvious: It was his best game as a Patriot. Cialis soft tabs In reality, cialis soft tabs it was actually among the best receiving performances of the Tom Brady era, cialis soft tabs and one that had never even been turned in by Randy Moss in his time with the Pats.

Considering how Lloyd’s first season in New England had gone up until Sunday night’s matchup with the 49ers, cialis soft tabs the bar wasn’t exactly set extremely high. Cialis soft tabs He’d been thrown to plenty — at least five targets in all but two games, cialis soft tabs seven or more targets in eight games and 12 or more in three games — but through his first 13 games as a Patriot, cialis soft tabs the former first-round pick had just two performances with 70 yards or more.

Lloyd more than exceeded whatever lowered expectations the last 13 games may have brought, cialis soft tabs turning in a gargantuan 10-reception, cialis soft tabs 190-yard performance on a night in which Brady went his way 16 times. Cialis soft tabs Lloyd didn’t score a touchdown against the 49ers (he still has just four on the season), cialis soft tabs but he played an integral role in the Patriots coming back from 28 points down in the second half. Cialis soft tabs In particular, cialis soft tabs Lloyd’s 53-yard reception with the Patriots on their own 18 yard line put the Pats in striking distance to set up Danny Woodhead‘s game-tying touchdown.

Lloyd also came up with a 24-yard grab on 4th-and-4 with the Pats down by 10 late to set up Stephen Gostkowski‘s field goal. Cialis soft tabs The performance was one Patriots fans shouldn’t soon forget, cialis soft tabs and not just because it was a coming out party for the highly touted free agent signee. Cialis soft tabs Lloyd’s 190 receiving yards are significant, cialis soft tabs as they stand as the third-most in a single game for the Pats once since Brady took over for Drew Bledsoe in the 2001 season.

Wes Welker has topped 190 yards twice for the Patriots, cialis soft tabs turning in a 16-catch, cialis soft tabs 217-yard performance in last season’s 34-31 loss to the Bills, cialis soft tabs as well as catching 15 passes for 192 yards on Nov. Cialis soft tabs 22, cialis soft tabs 2009 in a 31-14 win over the Jets.

Obviously, cialis soft tabs receiving yards aren’t the only means of judging a great receiving performance, cialis soft tabs as Rob Gronkowski literally has a dozen multi-touchdown games under his belt that outshine Lloyd’s game against the 49ers. Cialis soft tabs Still, cialis soft tabs Lloyd was brought in to be a vertical threat capable of producing big plays and big yards, cialis soft tabs and he did so Sunday in a way that’s rarely been seen even in this offense. Cialis soft tabs Here’s a look at some of the biggest receiving performances of the Brady era for the Pats in terms of yards (meant to be a top-10 sort of list, cialis soft tabs but the apparent inability to correctly count to 10 on my part means it’s now a top-13 list):
