Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin Gives Major Props to Falcons Defense After Loss

NFL: JAN 14 NFC Divisional Playoff - Seahawks at Falcons

The Falcons have talked for a few weeks now about the defense making significant strides, but it probably means a little more when such praise comes from an opponent, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

That’s exactly what happened after Saturday’s 36-20 divisional playoff win over Seattle. Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin couldn’t help but give the young Falcons defense its due credit.

“I think they can be great,” Baldwin said. “They are young, but they have a lot of talent. They have a lot of athletic, gifted talent. No one particular person stood out. It was just their effort. They played really, really hard. And you’ve got to respect that about any team.”

Baldwin wasn’t surprised, considering the defense is under the watch of a man he highly respects, Falcons head coach and former Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, who has instilled an attacking mentality into a group that typically includes a starting lineup of four rookies and three second-year players.
