Final Thoughts On Curtis Lofton

Recommended Posts

Quiet, unassuming, pleasant to be around, extremely competent and efficient. A model corporate employee, but maybe not the ideal make-up for the center of your defense.

The point was made when we brought in our new coordinators that fresh eyes will give a true assessment, and that's what happened here. A line was drawn down the middle of the page, with pluses and minuses on each side, and it tipped Curtis on out.

Thanks for the effort and best of luck!

GO FALCONS!!!!!

Falcons will be one and done yet again and not because anything other than the OFFENSE. Defense will be top 10, but offense will be underachieving

Disagree. I feel like the entire Offense thought they underachieved last year, and won't do the same thing twice.

Also, from the sounds of it, Koetter is bringing some new energy to the huddle and is getting players excited.

Eh, he is a Saint... I don't know that his time will be as enjoyable as he thinks it will be there... Benson owning the Hornets now. Mickey Loomis evaluating basketball players yesterday instead of working on a deal to bring back Drew Brees.... Not looking good so far this year...

Isn't it officially "none and done" until the falcons actually win a playoff game?

A 2 down MLB with shot knees and very stiff hips, a good tackler and run stuffer, to quiet to be a defensive leader on the team and wanting to be paid more than he was worth.

Horrible liability in the passing game that left the middle of the field wide open and his tackling and run stuffing ability did not make up for that weakness.

Dent will be a good replacement for him. and Tofu will play alot better then him on passing downs.

how can a guy with shot knees never miss a game??? u should be thinking about grimes his knees are starting to go and u guys are paying him 10 mil this year.....lofton wanted a big contract but he ended up signing at a good deal.....team friendly deal this year.....then he takes over vilma's salary.....also dont be so quick to crown tofu....this guy hasnt played in a year so even lofton with his "stiff hips" and "shot knees" should move better than him

Ironically, this will probably not be the final thoughts as someone will inevitably make another Lofton thread, and probably within the week.

This is true. I just hope we are not making posts about him during the season saying how we should not have let him go and that he is balling with the Saints.

He has sugery on his knees every off season and he is still young, young players should not have that many knee surgeries, and it just feeds into him being slow, and unable to move laterally enough to properly cover the middle of the field.

Look we know him better than you do, his knees are bad and will not hold up over the long haul and he moves like a stone statue in coverage. Teams will be passing all over the middle of the field on you guys when he is in the game.

yea...y'all know him all i heard from falcons fans was how much of a beast he was....now he leaves and hes this flawed guy who ur better without anyway.....also having kne surgery doesnt mean his knees are terrible he works hard just like any other player all year....so ur knee are gonna get worn down....maybe hes just a guy who would rather go get his knee cleaned then pop pain pills after every workout

Lofton seemed quiet and nice until he realized that Nolan didn't think he was worth keeping around, at which point he turned into a whiny little *****

falcons fans are swarming that nolan bandwagon......dont forget his debacle in san fran......they took singeltary over him.....rofl
