  • On March 10, 2012, Tatupu signed a two-year, $5.75 million contract with the Atlanta Falcons.[8] On July 24, 2012, Tatupu suffered a torn pectoral and will miss the entire 2012 NFL season. The Falcons released him the next day

  • I loved Lofa, but when we cut him, it was really his time. It's a tough business, and not everyone, even a guy with the talent Lofa had, is built to play over a long period of time. He was amazing at his prime, but his body just didn't hold up. I hope he has other successes in his life, but his football career should be over

    Yes, he was always jumping to conclusions.

    His career is, in fact, concluded.

  • Lofa's now kind of the poster boy for why picking an undersized MLB is a bad long term investment. Great player broken too soon.

  • Every time I go through that McDonald's drive-in in Kirkland where he got his DUI, I pour out a bit of my coffee in his honor...

    Seriously, the defensive leader of our greatest team. Love that guy...

    I like that suggestion! Too bad that he just got "used up" in six years.

    Agreed he really was a key piece to us getting to super bowl 40. :13:

  • I think it's safe to say that everyone really liked Lofa. He should have gotten DROY over Merrriman if you ask me... IIRC he had more interceptions and a couple other key stats, but the problem was he played for Seattle...

    Also, IIRC, it seemed like he stopped taking care of his body and put on FAT weight, rather than muscle, after his first year or two. When you become a lazy ass and you're already kinda undersized, it ain't gonna work out for you.

  • There are number of players who Lofa is an upgrade over. While he may not be a starter, he still can be an effective reserve. He has football smarts and that is something that is needed for any team. BTW, look at the sizes of the current LBs on the Seahawk roster. Lofa would be the 2nd or 3rd biggest on the team. He's not that small. He just can't stay healthy.

  • Simply Put - Lofa is my favorite LB of all time. His decline was one of the more painful things I've had to watch...
