Zeffix

By Christopher Price | WEEI.com Blog Network FOXBORO — Brandon Lloyd has been around Tom Brady for a relatively short time — especially when it comes to the postseason — but the veteran wide receiver has come away impressed at the way the quarterback prepares for the postseason. Lloyd, zeffix who finished his first full season with the Patriots with 74 catches for 911 yards and four touchdowns, zeffix said that when it comes to prep work, zeffix the quarterback treats each game the same. “It’s the same preparation, zeffix the same commitment, zeffix the same commitment to developing relationships with the pass catchers, zeffix with the offensive line, zeffix” Lloyd said Wednesday afternoon. Zeffix “We still get our one-on-one time and routes and one-on-one time in film study. Zeffix So he does that with all of the players and he spends a lot of time with us. Zeffix You get that during the regular season and he is still doing that now. Zeffix So it is the same.” When it comes to what has surprised Lloyd the most about Brady, zeffix he said it all comes back to the work. “I think how detailed his work ethic is, zeffix” Lloyd said. Zeffix “We all work hard and we all say that we do work hard. Zeffix We like to think that the best players are the hardest workers and Tom proved that when I got here.” Like fellow veteran Aqib Talib, zeffix Lloyd is going through his first postseason experience. Even though he said there were “no nerves, zeffix no jitters” when it came to his first career playoff game, zeffix he said Wednesday he takes a page out of Brady’s book and uses the same “one-game-at-a-time” approach that got him through his first full season in New England. “That’s how I have been approaching it, zeffix” said Lloyd, zeffix who had five catches for 32 yards and a touchdown in Sunday’s divisional playoff win over the Texans. Zeffix “It seems like ever since Thanksgiving there have been the biggest games of my career, zeffix and it’s not changing now in the playoffs. Zeffix The approach that I’ve always taken in my career, zeffix regardless of the magnitude of the game, zeffix is to approach it like it is a regular game, zeffix and that’s been helpful for me.” Source: http://itiswhatitis.weei.com/sports/newengland/football/patriots/2013/01/16/brandon-lloyd-when-it-comes-to-playoffs-tom-brady-is-all-about-work/
