Viagra Usa

Brandon Lloyd caught two passes in the Patriots’ last game two weeks ago — both for TDs.

FOXBOROUGH — He might be able to leap over a moving car — more on that later — but receiver Brandon Lloyd is hoping the second half of the Patriots’ season finds him jumping into the end zone more often.

Lloyd, viagra usa signed to a three-year, viagra usa $12 million deal in the offseason, viagra usa began his Patriots career with a bang: five catches in Week 1, viagra usa eight the next week, viagra usa then a season-high nine (for a season-high 108 yards) the week after that.

Save for a six-catch, viagra usa 80-yard game at Seattle, viagra usa Lloyd’s numbers have dipped a bit since those first three weeks. Viagra usa He’s been held to three receptions or fewer in four of the Patriots’ last five games, viagra usa including a single 6-yard grab in the overtime win against the Jets on Oct. Viagra usa 21.

His most recent game — the 45-7 victory over the Rams in London — saw Lloyd catch just two passes. Viagra usa Both, viagra usa though, viagra usa went for touchdowns, viagra usa possibly a positive sign as the Patriots get set to come off their bye week with a home game on Sunday with the Bills.

Despite the week off, viagra usa can Lloyd carry over that momentum of getting into the end zone?

“It was two catches, viagra usa” he said.

True, viagra usa but both went for touchdowns. Viagra usa Won’t that help his confidence?

“It was two catches, viagra usa two touchdowns, viagra usa” Lloyd said. Viagra usa “We still have a lot of work to do.”

Lloyd has made it his goal of establishing good chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady, viagra usa but knew it wouldn’t happen overnight. Viagra usa Halfway into his first season, viagra usa it remains very much a work in progress.

For Lloyd, viagra usa and for Brady.

“I think I said earlier, viagra usa in the spring, viagra usa that I don’t think this year we’ll be at a point where we’re like, viagra usa ‘All right, viagra usa we got it, viagra usa’ because we still have so much work to do, viagra usa” Lloyd said. Viagra usa “We’re working hard to improve on that, viagra usa week by week and day by day, viagra usa but it’s a group effort, viagra usa and that’s what we’re moving forward with.”

Said Brady: “I hope it keeps getting better. Viagra usa We just keep working at it, viagra usa so we go out there in practice and we work on things and Coach [Bill Belichick] tells us things that we need to do better. Viagra usa We’re always trying to make those improvements. Viagra usa I think you just have to keep going out there to work at it and see if it can be better each day.”

With 37 receptions for 435 yards and three touchdowns, viagra usa Lloyd is on pace to challenge his career high of 77 catches, viagra usa which came two seasons ago with the Broncos when he piled up a career-best 1, viagra usa448 yards. Viagra usa That number appears safe, viagra usa barring an exceptional second half, viagra usa but Lloyd can become a dangerous complementary piece, viagra usa combining with receiver Wes Welker and tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez to give Brady plenty of powerful options through the air.

That’s the great aspect of the Patriots’ offense. Viagra usa It could be a different standout every week, viagra usa either from a pass catcher or running back Stevan Ridley.

“The teams that I’ve been on, viagra usa regardless how talented that I’ve been compared to other pass catchers, viagra usa I’ve never been declared a No. Viagra usa 1 target, viagra usa like a Larry Fitzgerald or a Calvin Johnson, viagra usa where it’s clear, viagra usa” said Lloyd, viagra usa who is in his 10th season, viagra usa but is already on his sixth organization. Viagra usa “Coming to a team like this, viagra usa it’s natural for me, viagra usa to make sure that the chemistry between me and Tom is there so when he needs me as an option, viagra usa I’ll be available for him. Viagra usa They want me to be open, viagra usa and they want me to catch the ball.”

Targeted 69 times this season, viagra usa Brady and Lloyd are missing almost as often as they’re connecting. Viagra usa What felt forced early in the season is now a normal part of the offense: Lloyd, viagra usa working mostly on the outside, viagra usa using his speed and jumping ability to make plays downfield.

That jumping ability was on display in a video that surfaced this week from over the summer, viagra usa when Lloyd appeared to leap over a Smart Car moving at 35 miles an hour. Viagra usa Impressive, viagra usa but Patriots fans would prefer to see him soaring into end zones in the second half of the season, viagra usa when championships are decided and playoff posturing begins.

“It seems like the games are a lot bigger, viagra usa they mean more, viagra usa they’re more important coming into the second half of the season, viagra usa coming into November and December, viagra usa” Lloyd said. Viagra usa “Things are starting to shake out in the conferences and the divisions, viagra usa so you have stuff you can look forward to, viagra usa stuff that you can improve on.”
