49ers HC Mike Singletary Thinks Falcons LB Curtis Lofton Is A "Throwback"

From D-Led at the AJC:

Singletary, a 1998 inductee into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, likes Lofton's style of play and called him a "throwback."

"He plays the position the way it’s supposed to be played," said Singletary, who terrorized offenses for 11 seasons in the NFL before entering the coaching ranks.

During game weeks coaches - not wanting to provide bulletin board material - are generally flowery with their praise of other teams. This could be considered as such but I think it brings to light something Falcons' fans have known for two seasons, Lofton is an All-Pro talent and now it appears he has the surrounding talent needed to garner that attention from the rest of the league.
