The Seahawks are not going to cut Matt Hasselback. I would wager $500 he'll be a Seahawk for a few more years. They have nobody that can step in and play QB and if this team doesn't win Hawks fans will go the way of the dodo. They're a fickle bunch up here and their management isn't going to mess with what's working out of fear of losing the fan base. I expect them to draft a QB in April though.

Of course if his back is total shit, he'll be shit-canned quickly.

That is the only way it would make sense for me. But I don't think Matt would accept that at this point in his career and by the time he would, we should'nt need him. This scenario is the only way I could see it happening.

If you sign Hasselback then it's "may the best man win." The job has to be earned and at this point it's time for JC to grow up and be a baller or pack his bags. The offense ain't new after one year. Throwing the football is throwing the football and reading defenses is reading defenses. There's no magic o it. No more baby sitting, he has to earn his keep.

If you get your hands on the football you got to catch it. This is business.

+1. If this somehow played out and the Skins did sign him, it's open competition.

I think he would be a great mentor for JC but I really can't see him wanting to be the back up somewhere especially knowing that he's the best QB on the team (well atleast in a win now situation). It would help speed up JC's development to have a proven or quality QB mentoring him

Mentor for JC? Sorry Matty, but I think JC has been around long enough not to need a mentor. And if he does still need a mentor after being a starter for 2 full seasons, then you have to ask the question is JC a bona fide starting QB? To me, if JC flounders or does not show progression in '09 his butt is gone. Statwise, with the exception of the TD/INT ratio, he is just above Gus Frerotte level, and unfortuantely as much as I liked Gus back in the day, he never really made a progression either.

A mentor in this offense certainly wouldn't hurt. Although it's probably a year too late.

If the Skins signed him I guess this would send the clear message to JC that he is not the future - Scout.com said Hasselback at 33 still has 3-4 good years left in his career. My gut tells me leave qb alone and just start building the lines....

Scout.com: Cut Matt Hasselbeck?
Go with your gut.

I agree 100%. They're not cutting him. No way. He's still a pretty good Qb that has taken a team to the SB. He was hurt last year and his line sucks. If they cut him who's gonna play QB? Seneca Wallace? Actually Wallace comes in and plays well but he's not a 16 game starter. Hassleback isn't going anywhere.

Kind of surprised about all the interest over Matt. Nothing personal but I could give two-shits where he plays next year. The only thing I ever think about hearing his name is the insane hit Smoot put on him in last year's playoff game. Hasselback's leg was a giant bruise (he looked pathetic against Green Bay the next week). Fond memory of Smoot... maybe he deserves another year. As nickel? And he has to practice more or something, i don't know but i get the feeling Smoot parties his arse off.

A healthy MH would be an improvement in places like Minny, Chicago, and Detroit. Seattle is getting a new head coach, so who knows what direction Mora Jr. will go. I think MH would be serviceable here as a back up and nothing else, a more talented Todd Collins.
