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