What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, find femcare cod he was asked?
“I don’t know, find femcare cod” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, find femcare cod he was reminded, find femcare cod as if he didn't realize the Texans, find femcare cod who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, find femcare cod were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, find femcare 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, find femcare cod but we still have things we need to improve on, find femcare cod” he said. Find femcare 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, find femcare cod which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Find femcare cod It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.
At 2:49 of the first quarter, find femcare cod the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, find femcare cod Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Find femcare cod Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, find femcare cod and he was off for the end zone, find femcare cod giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Find femcare cod “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, find femcare cod” he said, find femcare 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, find femcare cod and we were able to take advantage of it.”
“That was well executed, find femcare cod” said coach Bill Belichick. Find femcare cod “That was great protection, find femcare cod great run fake, find femcare cod and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Find femcare cod The players did a good job on that.”
Not only was it big for the team, find femcare cod but also for Lloyd.

Find femcare 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, find femcare cod and even his ability to mesh with Brady, find femcare cod so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Find femcare cod Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Find femcare cod He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, find femcare cod either. Find femcare cod “I don’t know how many yards I had.”
As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, find femcare cod we’re just executing the plays. Find femcare cod I haven’t seen the film, find femcare cod but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”
Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, find femcare cod though, find femcare cod and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, find femcare cod only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, find femcare cod Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.
“I don’t know, find femcare cod” he said, find femcare cod when asked about that play. Find femcare cod “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Find femcare cod Pretty much all I know right now. Find femcare cod As long as it puts points on the board. Find femcare cod It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, find femcare cod not too low, find femcare cod that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Find femcare cod We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Find femcare cod “I don’t know. Find femcare cod I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, find femcare cod” he said.
