I'm glad you like PFF. I like them too. I'm a subscriber. And coincidently, they're the ones that rated Sean Weatherspoon the worst Linebacker at tackling efficiency.

Here's an article from PFF that mentions what a great move it was for the Saints to upgrade their linebackers with Lofton.

And here's an article from PFF stating that loosing Lofton should be a major concern for the falcons.

Now, this thread was supposed to be about Chris Ivory and we've completely hijacked it. I apologize to the OP.

If you'd like to read more about Lofton or falcons poor tackling, there's already a thread on the subject. http://blackandgold.com/showthread.php?t=45542 (Falcons tackling)

It's full of PFF stats.

I am kind of surprised Ivory hasn't demanded a trade. It's been a while since a Saints player has demanded a trade, wouldn't surprise me if Ivory is the one to do it soon.

Wouldn't be surprised if something isn't in the works with the Cardinals.
The word out of Saints camp is Ivory hasn't been playing because of fumbles during practice and struggling in picking up the blitz which is really bad since there isn't much contact going on in practice to cause fumbles.

That certainly was the knock on him in training camp. It seemed like every day they commented on him coughing it up again, sometimes multiple times.

That has to be it. He runs like bull with his ass on fire, so there must be something else there too. He never was a good pass protector, so its probably a combination of the two.

He'll probably get his chance soon. It'll probably be in a game where we're 2 or 3 scores up and they'll see if he can hang onto the ball.
