Would you accept Matt Hasselbeck in 2013 as Wilson's backup?

    We're also running zone read in Seattle, tons of bootleg and play action, run option. I'm guessing that's here to stay. We're taking shots downfield. We're not running a timing, short passing system. Would it not make sense to concentrate on signing a backup who can keep the offense as it is should Wilson pick up an injury?


    Not saying I want him, but, I never agreed with Hass being a short-route, timing QB. He did very well using his IQ to throw open long routes to Britt and Wright. We'll never know for sure, but I think the WCO eventually prohibited his strength, his football IQ.

    Thats a total, "IMO".

  • Chances this team is going to bring back a QB that they've cut ties with in the past: slim to none.

    The offense we're running now is a lot like the one I'd always wanted to see Hass play in. As much as Holmgren helped Hass turn into the player he was, I also think he held him back. Just my opinion, obviously, and I'm an idiot.

  • It will be interesting to see what happens in the next few seasons. I honestly don't think we keep Flynn for too long.

    I agree with all of your points, except the ones you made in your first two sentences.

  • I have to admit to laughing a lot at the thought of Flynn "demanding" a trade. pffft!

    He's under contract, what's he going to do not play? :roll:

    He's here to stay for at least the length of his contract cause his time has about come and gone too. You think other coaches will now think Pete has no clue about QBs and will take Flynn?


    And Matty? I truly think he will retire at the end of this season anyway. He got his pay day, sign with the Hawks for a day and retire a Seahawk cause everyone knows him as that.

    Either get into broadcasting or coaching, or just go to his home in Chelan and enjoy the good life he's earned. I think he's smart enough to know that.

    I still remember that time he cried. And, the other time he cried. And, that other, other time he cried. He could be our Charlie Batch.

  • As much as I liked Matt when he was a Seahawk, I do not feel that he has enough "gas in the tank". Yes....I would like Matt signed for TC so he can retire as a Hawk player .....and then come on board as a coach. I can "dream", can't I?

  • I would love it. Matts my all time favorite Seahawk. (although I have a feeling Russell might be someday).

    To be honest I think with Wilson the backup QB is not very important. He just doesnt seem like hte type who's going to be very injury prone in his career **Knock on wood**. He's a runner but he's smart about running, and it seems to be pretty tough to get big hits on him with his size and maneuvarability.

  • While we're at it, lets replace Leroy Hill with Brian Banks. It's more important to have a good story than a good team.

    Whenever Hass hangs it up, sign him for one day and retire a Seahawk. No much more he can do for us. Not much more for us to ask of him.

    I don't think Pete and Co would ask of Vick the same things that Reid asks Vick to do. The Seahawks aren't a team that asks their quarterback to throw for 300 yards and 45 pass attempts every game. I think Vick would definitely be an upper tier back up an would be perfect in the case Russ gets injured (*knock on wood*).
