Josh Hill, Tight End
Individual match-ups when the Saints offense lines up against the Seahawks defense are going to be “must see TV”, and Seattle’s much ballyhooed “Legion of Boom” secondary vs the Saints dynamic young receivers and Coby Fleener are most definitely one of these match ups.
This leaves back-up tight end Josh Hill as perhaps a bit of a “secret weapon” in Drew Brees’ arsenal on Sunday.
With today’s announcement that Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor will miss the game due to injury, this just increases the likelihood that Brees will try to exploit the middle of Seattle’s defense.
Hill certainly has the athletic ability to make plays, particularly in the red zone, when the defense is more likely to concentrate on New Orleans’ more publicized weapons…..
