What does the win – the Pats’ seventh straight – say about the team, order arimidex cod he was asked?
“I don’t know, order arimidex cod” he said.
It means you’re pretty good, order arimidex cod he was reminded, order arimidex cod as if he didn't realize the Texans, order arimidex cod who were 11-1 and had also won six straight, order arimidex cod were just another game on the schedule.
“Obviously, order arimidex 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, order arimidex cod but we still have things we need to improve on, order arimidex cod” he said. Order arimidex 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, order arimidex cod which is a shame since he was quite enthusiastic earlier in the season. Order arimidex cod It was a shame because he certainly had something to celebrate after this decisive win.
At 2:49 of the first quarter, order arimidex cod the Pats having scored on a Brady-to-Aaron Hernandez 7-yard pass, order arimidex cod Lloyd headed out into the flats and kept on running. Order arimidex cod Brady lofted a perfectly arched ball that fell into Lloyd’s hands, order arimidex cod and he was off for the end zone, order arimidex cod giving the Pats a 14-0 start. Order arimidex cod “Yeah that was definitely a scheme play, order arimidex cod” he said, order arimidex 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, order arimidex cod and we were able to take advantage of it.”
“That was well executed, order arimidex cod” said coach Bill Belichick. Order arimidex cod “That was great protection, order arimidex cod great run fake, order arimidex cod and Brandon got a couple of steps behind the secondary and Tom hit him. Order arimidex cod The players did a good job on that.”
Not only was it big for the team, order arimidex cod but also for Lloyd. Order arimidex cod A week earlier he’d been targeted only once, order arimidex cod capping a six-game string of games in which he came up with only 16 receptions. Order arimidex 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, order arimidex cod and even his ability to mesh with Brady, order arimidex cod so this performance seemed to slam the door on those thoughts. Order arimidex cod Yet Lloyd said he had no idea how involved he’d be for this game. Order arimidex cod He said he had no thoughts about having such a big game, order arimidex cod either. Order arimidex cod “I don’t know how many yards I had.”
As for clicking with Brady once again: “I mean, order arimidex cod we’re just executing the plays. Order arimidex cod I haven’t seen the film, order arimidex cod but I don’t really have any comments about it right now.”
Lloyd kept his head in the game nicely, order arimidex cod though, order arimidex cod and when Danny Woodhead made a nice run, order arimidex cod only to have the ball poked out of his hands 45 seconds into the fourth quarter, order arimidex cod Lloyd was on the spot to fall on the ball in the end zone.
“I don’t know, order arimidex cod” he said, order arimidex cod when asked about that play. Order arimidex cod “It was a screen pass and I’m just doing my best to block downfield and the ball popped out. Order arimidex cod Pretty much all I know right now. Order arimidex cod As long as it puts points on the board. Order arimidex cod It doesn’t really matter how they come.”
Not too high, order arimidex cod not too low, order arimidex cod that’s how Lloyd played the game Monday night. Order arimidex cod We’ll never know exactly how he feels about the performance or about his team. Order arimidex cod “I don’t know. Order arimidex cod I think coach Bill has a better gauge on the pulse of the team, order arimidex cod” he said.
