  • Hasselbeck struggles with deep ball and open receivers

    -- Hasselbeck Struggles Deep --
    Sat Aug 28, 2004 --from FFMastermind.com

    The News Tribune reports Seahawks starting QB Matt Hasselbeck struggled with deep passes against the Chargers last night. "We missed a couple we had wide open," HC Mike Holmgren said during halftime of the Seahawks' exhibition victory over the Chargers. Hasselbeck missed a wide-open WR Bobby Engram on a third-and-4 play from the San Diego 38. Engram was open inside the 5 after beating Chargers CB Drayton Florence and FS Kwamie Lassiter, but the pass sailed long. Hasselbeck barely missed two long passes on the next drive. The first was a 50-yarder from midfield that WR Koren Robinson nearly turned into a diving grab at the goal line. Robinson had a step on Chargers CB Quentin Jammer. The pass wasn't bad, but neither was it delivered as accurately as Seattle coaches would prefer. Later in the drive, on first-and-20 from the 29, Hasselbeck drifted to his left and spotted WR Darrell Jackson open near the 10. The pass was too high to handle. Hasselbeck did deliver an arcing pass on a 32-yard lob to Robinson at the San Diego 4. The ball sailed just over CB Sammy Davis and into Robinson's grasp just in time for the receiver to plant both feet inside the sideline.

      Fuel? Pffft. No one will respond to this.

        Hasselbeck's been in the league a while now, I'm sure whatever it is will get straightened around.

          Probably just something simply like camp arm. He'll be fine.
          The more things change, the more they stay the same.

              I wonder if people in Seattle are freaking out about this.

                Not at all. Hass looked fairly rusty at times, but the Charger game was the first consistent live action he'd seen this season. He barely played in the first two games. The play that drove Seahawk fans nuts was the fumble right before the half when he just held onto the ball too long. A boneheaded reversion to the QB of two years ago, but as hacked off as Holmgren was about it, I wouldn't think it's a long-term problem.

                We'll have good depth with Hasselbeck. Dilfer and Seneca Wallace (kind of a Wal-Mart version of Michael Vick), in that order. Hasselbeck will likely be fine when the season starts (he looked good on the short stuff, of course) and barring injury, he'll have a fine season.

                There aren't really any "Dilferites" left - people respect Trent for his toughness, his dedication to the team and the things he has overcome, but we recognize that this team will go as far as Matt Hasselbeck will take them.
