    That sideline catch in what the 1st or 2nd? And the way he laid out for that catch out of bounds in the 4th. Guy was a great pick up. Played well again today

    How bad did he hurt his shoulder or whatever he hurt? Anyone have any info?

    I think he just got the wind knocked out of him. Looked like he was gasping for air on the sidelines.

    I have no info on Lloyd's injury - wouldnt be surprised if he broke a collar bone.
    Hope we dont loose him. He is a very good player, cannot afford to miss him. Do not have much confidence in Branch's or Edelman's abilities to replace him.

    He tried at the end. Lloyd is everything I expected him to be as a Patriot this season.

    Sean is just the king of the chicken little contingent, trying to get out ahead of the other doom and gloomers.

    Lloyd is great, but the knock on him remains he will make the spectacular catch but struggle on the more run of the mill stuff. And he doesn't draw double coverage. When you make your living beating single coverage on the edge, sometimes the edge tears you up. Hope he's not badly injured but his shoulder looked like it took the brunt of the landing.

    Nobody's beating coverage down the field on this team except Welker. And Fells...but they didn't give him any more opportunities. Hernandez and Gronkowski are just not having their way with defenders this season. Nagging injuries and an off season of (and GM's) planning to limit them (and the new TE's trend in general) seems to be having an effect.

    didnt say lloyd was bad.. he has been excellent smart ass.. but this team is what it is ....3-3 and that is mediocre and you lose to a below avg coach and the opposing pee wee qb out plays you.. its time for some concerns...

    Glad to hear he isn't badly injured. There seemed to be a lot of dents and scratches out there today. Lloyd did have that pretty spectacular catch today and that beautiful near-catch (was OOB). I'd also like to see him catch some and stay on his feet pretty soon. Hopefully we see that soon. And Fells had a pretty nice catch himself. Hope to see more from him as well.

    Lloyd has been good, not great. he has one td and it came when his team was winning by 20 something points. I expected a bit more than Lloyd catching five or six 10 or 15 yard passes in a game. I guess its hard to get excited about Lloyd when we see other receivers with less acumen than him catching 40 and 50 yard bombs on this secondary...:mad:

    I've come to say "I was wrong." I lamented all offseason that Lloyd would not fit into the Patriots offense, but he's been a great surprise. I love his attitude on the field and his willingness to out on every play. I was most disappointed that we didn't get Reggie Wayne, but we tried, so what else can you do?

    I expect that if Gronknandez returns to health, Lloyd is going to be a big-time playmaker come playoff time.

    Just awesome that yet another Brady overthrow might potentially cost us our deep threat WR for a week or more.

    You might remind him that the last two SB winners were 10-6 and 9-7, and both had a .500 record in November. No one believes me, but I'm actually glad we are 3-3. Unless you are a stacked veteran team, you don't know how to get better until you realize how teams can beat you.

    well...I'm going to have to dock you ten demerits for glass half full behavior...even if what you say is very astute...because..well...it's these one point loss things...they are so horrible and leave you with an empty feeling...or, well, half empty....and until the Patriots do what the CL's cluck for after any loss, firing EVERYBODY and cutting Brady, I don't think I can EVER be optimistic EVER AGAIN...but I'll stick around...just in case...you know...we win a game...or a few games...but, uh, don't force me to optimistic because that's just wrong...OK?...this is my two cents...[​IMG]

    @iceicebrady I completely agree. I hate losing but if it had to happen im glad it happened now and not in the playoffs. Im tired of this team thinking that every team will be just a cake walk..... you can't think that. They need to refuse to lose not play to win. They need to have that 01 mentality when no one was giving them a chance and they proved every one wrong. Its time for this team to know what it feels like to be "mediocre" so that they strive to do better to never feel that way again!

    What bothers me is Lloyd is he is always off balance when he attempts to or makes a catch. Brady had him for a 60 yd TD, but the dude just tripped up. I love Lloyd's effort, you can see how hard he's trying to make plays out there. Maybe he's thinking too much. Those sideline catches take so much out of a qb and a receiver to perfect and execute. I wish he could simplify his game a bit more

    No. Brady was off today. Numerous times he missed open receivers. Gronk in the ez on the near pick, for example. How many intentional grounding calls? From the guy who changed the course of the last super bowl with one?! Wtf! Brady looked like dog dookie, period. If I catch too much flak for this comment I'll go back and document every pass play. It seemed like half the time he dropped back to pass be was ******* up the throws (second half anyway). How many near interceptions? How many poor decisions to target well covered receivers?

    Seriously with this crap? Leaning/diving sideline catches are part of the requirements for an outside receiver. Since Lllllllllloyd doesn't usually get much separation, his catches are bound to be more of the difficult variety.

    Yup, Llyod is making the catches outside the numbers the Pats have paid him too. Llyod has never got good separation through out his career. But he seems to always make the catches in tight coverage, outside the numbers.

    Lloyd seems to make me say "wow" once a game or so. I'm glad he's out there, and hope he stays healthy.

    Nobody else on the team can work the sidelines like he can. If he goes down, the defense won't be as compelled to cover the field's width.

    It would have put them in position to try and get a FG. Still would have had 50 seconds left
