“They have some young guys on the edge who can really run and play,” Green said. “With William Moore back there, they have one of the best safeties out there. He’s going to come up and hit. They are a real talented group on the back end.”
Green knows that Moore had the big forced fumble in overtime against the Saints last week.
“He’s like a linebacker playing safety,” Green said. “He’s always all over the field. He’s so active. It’s really hard to find a safety that’s so active. He’s someone, who can run and hit.”
Nolan knows the Falcons’ defense, which gave up 333 yards passing to the Saints, must do a much more credible job on Green.
“They are using the read-option and a lot of the passes that come off of it,” Nolan said. “He’s a similar player to Julio Jones here. Not the same, but a similar guy. He’s kind of a Avatar guy in the movie. He’s just bigger than everybody, taller and just a step above athletically.”
