The new public enemy #1

This weekend former Atlanta Falcons player Curtis Lofton made the decision to sign with the rival New Orleans Saints. The Falcons had made up their mind that Curtis wasn't part of their future plans when they opted to sign former pro bowler Lofa Tatupu.

Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times Picayune has an article up on Lofton and there is a very interesting quote from Lofton...

"I wanted to go to a team that, No. 1, had a chance to win a Super Bowl, HAD TRUE FANS, a great defensive coordinator. Then once the Saints called, I was like, 'Wow,'" Lofton said. "When I took my visit there, I loved it. I knew I was going there. I didn't need to visit anywhere else. I told my agent that."

The Falcons fired the first shot when they made the decision to go a different direction from Curtis Lofton at the middle linebacker position. Lofton has now fired back at the fans that have supported him and many that were bewildered and angry to see him go. I would wish the best of luck to Mr Lofton but he just gave me and you a big F-YOU as he left town.
