Brett Maxie talks Alan Ball with Coop and Nate So far in training camp Alan Ball has been doing his job. He's not had an interception just yet, but he has had some pass breakups which is a great sign that he has range at the Free Safety spot. Here's his position coach Brett Maxie talking about camp so far with Coop and Nate from ESPNDallas... Coach Maxie on Coop and Nate This defensive secondary has not had a lot of luck when it comes to tipped passes over the last few seasons. And they don't have the greatest hands either. Yes, I am talking to you Terence Newman. If these guys can come up with more interceptions it's going to only make them that more dominant. I know they are trying as hard they can to come up with INT's, but I think we need to see some more chances taken by the CB's if they have help over the top.
