No offense, but who is this Lofton you talk about?
I haven't heard of him before, and you can't simply put it in the same level as the def rookie of the year, 2 yr = 2 pro bowls ...and that might be the defensive player of the year

Gore isn't playing so you're safe from him.

Curtis Lofton is an absolute beast! Great linebacker!

Lofton is a solid LB, no doubt who will continue to get better. For me this is one of those games that could go either way and could be a very good game.

The key for me is the Niners O line, they have been disappointing so far, and the Falcons are there to be run over. This is a game the Niners should be looking to control, but we have not yet developed the lineplay to allow us to do that.

Defensive, I think we match up pretty well to the Falcs, Offensively, I only really see Davis as being a weapon that could take t he game away from them.

A close one, and I have it as evens right now.

Our high powered offense should score more points than the niners can come back from, no matter how many rush yards we give up.

Am I the only one who doesn't think we'll get much success on the ground?

Coffee hasn't looked that impressive thus far and you know we're going to run it so you're likely to play 8 in the box and try to put the responsibility on Shaun Hill.

Our interior O-Line (specifically the guards) have been very poor thus far. Abraham is a beast but I think today our interior could be collapsed.

Your offense is very good, but I don't think that's our biggest problem. Our offense is just lame at the moment.

Willis' ability has no impact or effect on Lofton's. Sure we know who is better one on one. But as he said, two of the best.

Anyway, Any Given Sunday.
