Saints News, Thanksgiving 2013: Seahawks Aim For Another New Noise Record (CSC)

Former Seahawk Joe Tafoya is leading the effort. Said Tafoya, “What I’m envisioning is a situation where Drew Brees has to cover his ear holes or huddle closer or make adjustments because he can’t hear. When that happens, we’re affecting the game.” In other news, the Saints just released their first injury report of the week and Glenn Foster was the only player to miss practice. Jahri Evans and Darren Sproles were ‘full.’

Seahawks Prepare for Saints

Carroll on the Saints: ‘They can strike you dead on offense’ | Seahawks Insider – The News Tribune
“This is a team that obviously knows how to win through their history and with the leadership they have, Sean [Payton] and the quarterback and all that. But the way they’ve bounced back this year after last year is just obvious the impact the coaches have and it’s really cool to see that. So we see a really well-balanced football team in the Saints, they can strike you dead on offense, they have been playing very, very good defense, particularly against the throwing game, causing problems, and their special teams are stout and tough and physical. So this is a really exciting match up for us. It’s the kind of match up that brings out the best in you and it’s going to take all of that to match up on game day. So we’re really excited about it. It’s fun to be coming back, it’s fun to be Monday night at CenturyLink. I know our place will be all roused up and ready to go and we can’t wait to get there. So pretty cool stuff.”

“The energy and excitement in the stands is what I really hope to see coming out and being projected down to the field,” Tafoya said. “What I’m envisioning is a situation where Drew Brees has to cover his ear holes or huddle closer or make adjustments because he can’t hear. When that happens, we’re affecting the game.”

Donte Whitner’s remark is incorrect | Q
Brees would beg to differ. The diminutive QB has started all but one game since he signed with the Saints in 2006. The one game in which he didn’t play was due to the Saints having already clinched a playoff spot and the coaching staff sat their star signal caller. This is clearly a case of a scorned player still upset his team lost a contest due to a controversial call.
