Falcons Start Talking Trash

September 23rd, 2011

Joe would have expected Roddy White to deliver some fightin’ words before Sunday’s Bucs-Falcons game, but it seems the first round of trash talk is coming from Atlanta middle linebacker Curtis Lofton.

Justin “The Commish” Pawlowski, of WDAE-AM 620 and the Buccaneers Radio Network, caught some of Lofton’s genius on Atlanta radio.

“Legarrete Blount, I want no part of that guy,” the host of the Curtis Lofton radio show in Atlanta said earlier this week. 

Lofton responded swiftly, “I want all of him.  I don’t want no piece.  I want the whole thing.”

That’s funny. Lofton’s head coach told Sports Illustrated that one man can’t tackle the beast that is Blount.

“It’s one of our major musts to be successful — stopping the running game,” [Mike] Smith said. “[Blount] is such a big, strong running back and when he gets through the first level of the defense, he can really create some problems. You’re not going to be able to tackle him with one set of pads. You’re going to have to get multiple sets of pads on him. I know Raheem and what he wants to do offensively. He wants to feature that and he wants to run the ball.”

One can only hope Lofton gets his wish while the Bucs pound out the clock with a fourth-quarter lead.

    A bit off topic here, but i was curious as to know if this game has sold enough tickets to avoid a blackout. I dont live in the area and was just curious.

    The last sentence in this article doesn’t mean you should wait until the 4th to give Blount the ball. We would love if you did it in the first half too!

    Be careful Curtis, go in too aggressive for a tackle and he might just hurdle you.

    Faster than a speeding cannonball, More powerful than a semi, Able to leap linebackers in a single bound, Look, down on the field! It’s a man! It’s a RB! It’s Peterbilt Blount!

    My my..how quickly we start digging graves Mr. Lofton. Even if we don’t win the game, you can fully expect to have the back of your jersey “pee-wee, play in the rain” dirty. Oh, and by the way, wear your extra-large chest pad..as LeGarrett likes to bury his helmet/shoulder right near the solar plexus region. Just a thought tough guy!

    LOL its funny because I live here in Atlanta and I just talked to Curtis Lofton in early August. I work for Mercedes-Benz and he came to pick one up. Anyways I told him the Bucs were going to be ready for the Birds and “Matty Melt” and that Blount Force was going break their weak tackles and he laughed and said the samething he said on the radio show! lol Hopefully we pound the ball with Blount because I need my bragging rights up here!!! and winning this division wouldnt hurt either. Go Bucs!!!

    Every NFL Linebacker wants every piece of every NFL Running Back. Not so sure this qualifies as Trash Talk.

  10. snook Says:

    The Falcons can talk all they want. They own the Bucs. Only thing that will shut them up is a big win on Sunday.

  11. snook Says:

    Marty Choke better get knocked around on Sunday.
