Watch Video: Patriots GameDay: Things To Know About Brandon Lloyd
BOSTON (CBS) – Getting to know Brandon Lloyd, free lipitor I found out some interesting things about the Patriots receiver.
If he wasn’t playing football, free lipitor he would be smack dab in front of the camera. Free lipitor He loves television broadcasting, free lipitor and those are his plans after football. Free lipitor After all, free lipitor 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, free lipitor although he could easily do that. Free lipitor Lloyd wouldn’t mind hosting Entertainment Tonight if given the chance.
But for now, free lipitor he’ll stick with catching the football, free lipitor no matter what it means for his body. Free lipitor Lloyd is one of those unique receivers that sacrifices his body at any cost. Free lipitor 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, free lipitor Lloyd has just one thing in mind when the ball is thrown his way: moving the chains.
“When I was younger, free lipitor a lot of the established receivers would rather not catch the ball if they weren’t in a position to catch and run. Free lipitor I would rather catch the ball at all costs, free lipitor” Lloyd told me in our sit down for Patriots GameDay this Sunday. Free lipitor “I want to get the field advancement. Free lipitor That’s the only thing on my mind. Free lipitor I’m not trying to catch and run or do anything else, free lipitor 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. Free lipitor The two of them have a unique relationship that is still growing. Free lipitor In fact, free lipitor 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, free lipitor and make sure I’m seeing what he’s seeing, free lipitor” said Lloyd. Free lipitor “There’s been a time before the game and he pulled me in there. Free lipitor ‘Let’s run this this way, free lipitor’ and I said alright. Free lipitor That’s how we do it. Free lipitor That’s the kind of game I’ve always wanted to play, free lipitor because it’s so much beyond backyard football. Free lipitor Everything we do is so purposeful; it may be last minute but it’s purposeful.”
After a two touchdown day in London, free lipitor Lloyd is now gearing up for Buffalo following the Patriots bye.
