Podcast: Brandon Lloyd with Gottlieb

St. Louis Rams fans looking to get a feel for receiver Brandon Lloyd should check out Lloyd's appearance on the Doug Gottlieb Show.

Two highlights:

  • Lloyd on his production with the Rams so far: "This isn't a a celebration for me and my athletic ability. I'm at the stage where I'm trying to get into a playoff game and see how I perform on that stage. I am just a piece to help everyone achieve what we are trying to achieve. We are trying to get this season on the right track. Catching all those passes last year and getting all those yards was fun as hell, don't get me wrong. But I'm more concerned with getting into the playoffs as soon as possible at this stage of my career."

  • Lloyd on seeing Steven Jackson for the first time: "I was like, 'Man, 'Jack' looks like a superhero.' It's impressive to see a team's No. 1 leader take care of his body and prepare the way he does. It definitely made me rethink the way I prepare for these games. His intensity, his attention to detail, he knows the plays inside and out. There are no issues with Steven Jackson. It definitely makes you play better, elevate your play."

Lloyd sounds playful during the interview and also showed his savvy in sidestepping a question about former Denver Broncos Tim Tebow.
