Atlanta Falcons safety Damontae Kazee joined The Midday Show with Rick and John live from Flowery Branch. 

He talked about coming from training camp and never thought he would have this type of season he's having, leading the league in interceptions. He details his teaching process of when he gets an interception to just get up and run and don't think about the down by contact rule. Kazee also credits his days in high school as a wide reciever to prepare him for the safety position. 

He called the game in New Orleans a blessing because he gets to play in the NFL, but the crowd was lit up and the loss hurt. Kazee talks about having to learn to slow down at the free safety position because he has to be the last defender on the line for the Falcons. 

Kazee talks about the positions he can play, but is happy anywhere and loves playing for Atlanta.

Finally, when pressed, he admits Keanu Neal hits harder than he does.
