While the Falcons have been 0-3 in the playoffs with Lofton at middle linebacker, the Saints have won a Super Bowl. He believes he has a better chance to win a Super Bowl ring with the Saints.

"I feel like Atlanta and the Saints have been evenly matched," Lofton said. "But I really feel like there is more talent with the Saints. I will say that.

The fact that three of the people Payton, Loomis and Vitt -- that Lofton had dinner with are facing sanctions from the league was not a factor in his decision.

I wasnt there when the bounty stuff went down, Lofton said. I have no issue with that. My main thing was, I went down there and they have a winning mentality. ...They are kind of taking on the mentality that its Us verses Them. Thats how I feel and I cant wait to be a part of it.

Lofton never missed a down because of injury over the past four seasons as he racked up 577 tackles. As a rookie, he came out on passing downs. He played more than 95 percent of the snaps over the past three seasons under defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder.

Lofton said it was made clear that the Falcons, under new defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, viewed him as a two-down linebacker.

I just recently learned that you NEVER EVER capitalize falcon when referencing the atlanta falcons. Its disrespectful to an awesome bird.

I was reprimanded earlier for doing it and quite frankly I deserved it. Its hard to do because of old grammar habits... but I'm gonna try and so should everyone else.

However, I think its still OK to capitalize Skid Britches.
