It's been an amazing week for wide receiver Brandon Lloyd.

Not only does the man with the Spider-Man-like sticky hands sign with the New England Patriots, a team that the "Madden" video game has already simulated to win the Super Bowl thanks to the Brady-to-Lloyd connection, but the early returns on the "Madden" cover vote show Lloyd holding on to a late lead over former teammate Chris Long.

Top it off with this incredibly cool video Lloyd produced to help sell him as the potential cover star for "Madden NFL 13," and you can see why the Pats gave up millions to sign the sure-handed receiver.

If gladiators with giant swinging chains can't even catch Lloyd, how is the average cornerback expected to make a play?
