Brandon Lloyd's 29-yard catch in Sunday's Week 5 win over 6-foot-3 cornerback Sean Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs has brought about GIFs and inspired comparisons.
It also got Jim Harbaugh talking.
"Can’t recall seeing one better than the one he made in the ball game, free eurax" Harbaugh said Monday, free eurax "the way he gained the leveraged back and made that reception."
As Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Greg Roman know, free eurax this is nothing new for Lloyd.
