Watch Video: Patriots GameDay: Things To Know About Brandon Lloyd
BOSTON (CBS) – Getting to know Brandon Lloyd, discount eurax I found out some interesting things about the Patriots receiver.
If he wasn’t playing football, discount eurax he would be smack dab in front of the camera. Discount eurax He loves television broadcasting, discount eurax and those are his plans after football. Discount eurax After all, discount eurax he majored in journalism at the University of Illinois.
And don’t automatically think he’ll he’ll end up as just another talking head on Sunday mornings, discount eurax although he could easily do that. Discount eurax Lloyd wouldn’t mind hosting Entertainment Tonight if given the chance.
But for now, discount eurax he’ll stick with catching the football, discount eurax no matter what it means for his body. Discount eurax Lloyd is one of those unique receivers that sacrifices his body at any cost. Discount eurax We’ve already seen it several times this year; his touchdown catch against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3 and a sprawling sideline attempt in Seattle are just a couple examples.
After all, discount eurax Lloyd has just one thing in mind when the ball is thrown his way: moving the chains.
“When I was younger, discount eurax a lot of the established receivers would rather not catch the ball if they weren’t in a position to catch and run. Discount eurax I would rather catch the ball at all costs, discount eurax” Lloyd told me in our sit down for Patriots GameDay this Sunday. Discount eurax “I want to get the field advancement. Discount eurax That’s the only thing on my mind. Discount eurax I’m not trying to catch and run or do anything else, discount eurax I just want to catch the ball no matter how I do it.”
Of course it helps when he has a guy like “Tom Terrific” firing the football his way. Discount eurax The two of them have a unique relationship that is still growing. Discount eurax In fact, discount eurax Brady has no problem grabbing Lloyd at any time during the day to watch film together.
“He’ll pull me in randomly during the day to watch film, discount eurax and make sure I’m seeing what he’s seeing, discount eurax” said Lloyd. Discount eurax “There’s been a time before the game and he pulled me in there. Discount eurax ‘Let’s run this this way, discount eurax’ and I said alright. Discount eurax That’s how we do it. Discount eurax That’s the kind of game I’ve always wanted to play, discount eurax because it’s so much beyond backyard football. Discount eurax Everything we do is so purposeful; it may be last minute but it’s purposeful.”
After a two touchdown day in London, discount eurax Lloyd is now gearing up for Buffalo following the Patriots bye.
