If we keep getting pressure on the qb like we did this game and actually get the holding calls lofton won't look so bad lol

He's a linebacker. They don't particularly specialize in one on one coverage. They usually get a small little zone to handle. You can't zone the whole field by yourself.

Re: Lofton cover skills again

Don't know if anybody noticed but I saw Herring out there a few times on nickel downs. He had one pass breakup and otherwise didn't raise the mention of the announcers, which says to me he must have been doing a pretty good job.

Plus they were only 3/11 on third down....

A lot of those 3rd downs were 3rd and long thanks to the D-Line pressure

Unless that linebacker happens to be Chuck Norris!

Re: Lofton cover skills again

I'm sorry to start a argument about Lofton I think he's a hell of a player. I just don't understand why he's in the game between the 5 yard line and the goal line.

Re: Lofton cover skills again

Lofton may not be a 3 down back. But he is a fantastic 2 down back.
