Hasselbeck turns in vintage performance
No forced throws into the waiting hands of defenders. No costly fumbles. No chants from a frustrated fan base calling for the backup. Nothing but vintage Matt Hasselbeck.

    I was wrong
    Hasselbeck totally redeemed himself. I thought he would have been out of the game by half time. This was probably his finest game. Yes everyone, I am eating crow right now and it doesn't taste good.

    Well, I thought the Hawk's upper management mis-fired when they hired PeteC, so hand me some crow when you've had your fill. If a confirmed genius such as myself can be wrong, lesser mortals like you should be allowed to make the occasional mistake ;).

    I am here, and I have read all the comments. Credit where credit is due. Matt played great. Probably his best game in 3 years. We no doubt must sign him to a long term deal now. This one performance totally made me forget the last 4 years and this shows that just because he is old doesn't mean he is done. I still hate him. I still think we need to move on but that was one heck of a game. He looked like he was 30 again playing in 2005.

    Hmmm, hate seems kinda strong, but whatever. I don't think too many folks are hoping for a long term deal but a transition period might be a thought. Aside from Sam Bradford (and maybe not even him) most rookie QB's aren't ready for a few years. Maybe there's someone available via free agency (please not headcase Vince Young). I find the prospect of Whitehurst as the interim guy a little terrifying (having lived through Stoufer, et. al.) BTW, I wouldn't argue that Hasselbeck has been healthy and at his best the last couple years, but implying that he's been the crux of the problems since the Superbowl year seems to be a little reductive and turns a blind eye to all the other gaping holes on the team (Hutch, anyone?). Oh well, I'm glad they won Saturday and hope they prevail or at least go down fighting in Chicago. Go Hawks!

    Ill agree with you. I stated in a previous comment on another post that I will not say anything bad about Hasselbeck this week as he played one of the most complete football games I have ever seen on Saturday. Hutch was a terrible loss and we have lost a few other guys over the years which has hurt. The only thing I would argue is that in football I personally don't think anyone is always 100 percent healthy. Guys are always playing banged up. With that in mind and the injuries that Matt has right now he played fantastic and if he can keep it up next week I think we might be hosting another playoff game in a couple weeks.
