I'd rather not. Hasselbeck is my all time favorite Seahawk, but the only way this could make sense is if there was a significant financial savings from Matt Flynn or if the team traded Flynn for a good draft pick- both strike me as unlikely. And if all things were equal, I'd much rather have Flynn stepping in than Hasselbeck.

That's not even close to being true. In fairness to your argument, I doubt he'd last more than 4 games behind anything less than a stellar pass pro line.

Russell is the man, an awesome leader, a crazy student of the game, and everyhing else. But I would still really like to give him a vet who has been there before as a mentor on the sidelines. Kind of what Hass had with Dilfer. Russell doesn't currently have that. There is no accounting for experience. Even the most talented young players can benefit from mentorship. Hass would be the perfect guy for that role with Russ. A selfless vet who has been through it all. A great teammate with little ego.
FWIW, Wilson already has a veteran QB mentor in Warren Moon. Maybe Hasselbeck could teach Wilson how to be more spontaneous and fun in interviews though. That would be nice.
