He's missing Carlson like a disease now, and I'm noticing that WR's are having to go UP for more and more of his passes, instead of them coming straight to the numbers on their jerseys.
I don't think Hasselbeck has changed that much. If fact, he's performing better than I expected him to do given all the changes. This season he's completing 65.5% of his passes, 9th in the NFL (better than Rodgers, Vick, Brady, Rivers...). He can run when needed, and is a fiery and vocal leader on the field.
One of Hasselbeck's recurring problems, though, is throwing interceptions. He was 6th in the NFL in how often he threw picks, and is around that this season already. Obviously that won't last w/Carroll, so if Matt doesn't improve in that category we'll see just how good Charlie is and whether he is in fact an improvement or not.
At the end of the day, Matt produces for the Seahawks and will give us some victories. I really don't think we want to tinker with the most important position on our team when we're hovering around first in our division.
