  • Technically yes, but i believe they want more of a down-field passer.

  • It'll be interesting to see if Matt retires now. He's a big family first kind of guy, not sure if he wants to uproot his family again to go to another team as a backup.

  • Trade Flynn and make him Russell's backup!

    Just kiddin'! Retire Matt, sign with us and retire! We love you and you were an awesome player, but it's time to move to the booth and become an analyst, hopefully a better one than your little bro!

    What a QB trio that would be...Wilson, Flynn and MH

    He wouldn't be a bad backup if Flynn was our starter and nobody had ever even heard of Russell Wilson. But since Russell IS our starter, Hass would be a HORRIBLE backup. Hass doesn't even remotely have Russell's skill set. He didn't even have Russell's skill set in his prime (and I LOVE me some Matt Hasselbeck).

    No... one day contract, teary emo press conference, immediate induction into the ring of honor. That's the only way Matt comes back. It is now the future, we don't even look the same as when Matt was here. No point in going backwards.

  • Not surprising. I think most people around here (likely Matt himself) saw his 3 year deal as a 2 year deal to get Locker some time and experience.

    Honestly, I think he could continue to play if he wanted to, but I would rather just see him retire. He's still one of my favorites and still the only person to quarterback our team to the superbowl, and I just don't feel right watching him in another uniform.

    Why would Jacksonville? They have Henne there, and he can push/start over your boy Gabbert. So, Matthew would be overkill.

    Arizona could get itself to 6-8 win land with Hass, IMO. He did VERY well utilizing Britt and Wright's talents down there, even if it was a simple "okay, you got 1-on-1, you're getting a deep ball". He'd do very well in AZ, IMO.

    I was just making a lazy link to Bradley.
    If Arizona doesn't improve their offensive line, nobody is even going to start 8 games down there, let alone win 8. Otherwise, they have the receivers he could use. Running game is shit, though.

    I could see the Raiders too. They have a throw away get out of cap hell season coming up, might as well dump Palmer while they are at it.

  • Here is the list of folks who are interested in talking with Matt and his agent:

    Chris Mortensen ‏@mortreport
    Teams interested in Matt Hasselbeck: AZ, Buff, Chi, Cin, Cleve, Indy, NO, NYG, SF & Tampa,...and list could grow.


    If I were Matt, I would consider NO, AZ and SF. NYG wouldn't be a bad gig either. All are for back up roles, besides maybe AZ and possibly Buff. Interesting decision on his part.

    if Matt goes into broadcasting, it's going to be on a big time national NFL station like Fox, CBS, ESPN, NFL Network, etc. He's not gonna be content with making 200k on a local sports station.......even in Seattle.

    Besides, I betcha he plays one more year.

    Agreed. He has a bright future on NFL network or ESPN on TV somewhere like his homeboy Dilf should he be interested. Though I could very easily see him being a regularly ocurring guest spot on the Brock & Misc. show much like Tim Hass or John Clayton are.

  • The merge has occurred.

    Good luck Matt. Look at how long Brunell played recently. Matt could backup for another few years and probably start temporarily in a few of the places with unsettled QB positions.

  • Hass deserves an opportunity with the hawks organization in some capacity, as a QB coach or assistant or QB scout ect. Don't forget that he is the only Hawk QB to take us to a superbowl. If he would have had a more talented oline and not had to run for his life so much, maybe you all would give him the props he deserves. I agree his time on the field is over, but the dude has the football smarts. Now I love RW dont get me wrong, and I am only saying that Hass should be with the Hawks in some capacity to help benefit this team instead of doing work for a network in the booth. And for God sakes, I can't fathom him going to a team in our division, please no.
