Drew Brees gives the Seattle secondary major props saying they have a “Bunch of Ball Hawks”

The Seahawks are tied for the NFL lead with 16 interceptions this season. And they’re second in the NFL in passing defense, allowing just 180.4 passing yards per game. With that Drew Brees understands it will not be an easy task this week facing the Seattle secondary.

“Their secondary is full of a bunch of ball hawks,” Saints quarterback Drew Brees said. “They are guys that are around the ball all the time. Balls are getting tipped up; they have great ball skills, great awareness. That’s what their defense thrives on. …

“Sherman’s a great player, but they’ve got Earl Thomas who was an All-Pro last year. I’ve been in the Pro Bowl with him twice now, and I’m extremely impressed with him. He’s a guy who loves football. You can tell that he studies the game, studies every aspect of it. He wants to be a great player – not just a good player, a great player.”

That is a pretty impressive scouting report of the Seattle Seahawks, and with that in mind, the Saints will look to get open looks against the secondary.  Expect them to pick on the person replacing Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond.  That will likely be either Byron Maxwell or Jeremy Lane. Good Luck men….
