One of the few quarterbacks to give the Saints’ pass defense trouble this season plays for the team New Orleans will meet again in the playoffs.
The 366 yards passing Seattle’s Matt Hasselbeck racked up in a Nov. 21 loss in the Louisiana Superdome were the most by any quarterback against the 2010 Saints, who ranked fourth in the NFL in pass defense during the regular season.
However, the Saints aren’t sure if Hasselbeck will play in Saturday’s rematch.
Bothered by a strained hip, Hasselbeck backed up Charlie Whitehurst and did not play in Seattle’s NFC West-clinching victory over St. Louis on Sunday night.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he’ll pick a QB later this week.
That leaves New Orleans preparing for both.
