James Lofton Calls Out Knox on Drop

Recommended Posts

First - James Lofton is a terrible announcer; like Rex Ryan terrible.  Holy cow.  He almost made me hit the Booger (mute) Button.

 

But I write this thread to point out how, after dropping a well-thrown pass, Knox was accused of thinking about what he was going to do next after he caught it.

 

That was fine.  But then Lofton elaborated.  He accused Knox of, instead of securing the ball and taking it into the end zone, thinking about the dance/TD celebration he'd been practicing all week.

 

He seemed to have poured it on a little heavy and it got my attention.

 

Was he just using attempted humor to cover up how badly he sucks at his job?  Or is he really this much of a dick?

The drop was due to either him thinking about the hit or thinking about the run. That said, many discussing the drop seem to forget the many unbelievable catches from Knox this season that were game clinchin or winning catches. This would have been the Foxwoods turning point of the game Gug!

He really has aged in the last year or two.  I always mute and listen to the bIlls broadcast even though Murph struggles with facts during the games.  Murph is sometimes wrong on down, how much was or wasn’t gained on a play and calling incomplete passes that are caught.   Eric Wood is growing into color analysis job.

While Phillips rushed to do his sack dance, Fitz fell on the ball he just fumbled. If Phillips was effing paying attention instead of worrying about his dance, he could have had a fumble recovery.

 

Yes, the dancing stuff is real, it's not just get off my lawn BS.

Probably a bad joke. Was also a pretty bad drop. Ended up settling for 3 again

Knox was targeted like 6 times for 2 catches.....he played poorly

 

As for Lofton, I'm not sure why he's getting so much hate on here with multiple threads. I was at the game so I didn't hear the broadcast ....but he's been fine in the past.

As a side note he engaged many fans, including us before the game. Really cool dude.

Amazing. I disagree with every word of your thread/post. Lofton is an excellent color analyst. He’s on the top broadcast team for Westward One games, is articulate and has a personal history with the NFL from the AFL forward. Did I mention Gold Jacket and does the weekly HOF podcast? 

 

Ok, that out of the way, Knox looked absolutely stupid on that drop and deserving of criticism. He’s leaving us no choice but to cut down on his reps, given the alarming number of bonehead plays he has every week. Lofton’s criticism was nothing compared to most Bills fans.

 

Your reputation as a rabble-rouser precedes every post/thread you create, so it’s near impossible to detect if you really believe the crap yer spewing or just trying to get a rise on a Monday morning.

 

Im leaning toward the latter..

Totally agree re: Knox.  Perhaps he and Lofton both just had bad days.

 

Very cool that Lofton was fan-friendly!

Watch again lady. Fumbled, then recovered, THEN Phillips reacts with excitement. Ive watched it numerous times, as have others who thought the same thing at 1st too.

You can't call him articulate, man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I'm sorry.  I just found him to be unbearable yesterday (Lofton, I mean).  I don't recall feeling this way about him in the past.  Maybe I was just in a mood.

 

The drop by Knox was bad.  I just found it in poor taste for the announcer to not only assume he dropped it because he was too worried about his celebration dance; but he belabored it.  

 

And I agree ... Knox had a horrible game.  But the drop was far more likely him worrying about getting hit, or worrying about his YAC strategy.

I also like Lofton on the games, never have had any  problem with him AND he’s a great ex-Bill. Light years better than Tasker was.

Nope, he immediately went to his dance routine.

 

And the whole team going to the end zone for a freeze frame stuff has to stop, getting sick of that ***** tbh. Every game I watch, annoying af.

Well, considering Tasker can barely form a sentence, that's not saying much.

You seem to be very passionate about this.  Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with this particular topic.  Go dance on your own pole.

Philips actually sat on the football.  He never once looked for the  football after that. He will be mocked in the film room when the team re-watches that play.

You started a troll topic, don't be upset it isn't going your way.

Exactly, too concerned about his dance moves...

Im sensing some homerism in this thread.  I was working while watching the game ( meaning not paying attention to the tv but listening more ) and within the first 5 minutes I was annoyed by the commentator. Struggling to form 2 sentences, slow and just bad.

 

but hey..Lofton has a gold jacket, a former Bill so he must be great right?

Here -  It looks like Phillips was totally unaware that the ball had come out.

Lofton doesn't bother me nearly as much as some others.

I rather listen to him then collinsworth.

He rolled through the sack tight to his feet. That is a lot of man going very fast, that is real momentum, not get off my lawn sack dancing.  In fact it looked to me like he was looking down to see if the ball was free.
