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