Tim Hasselbeck

Postby psummersjr » Wed Jan 14, 2004 8:48 am

I was just curious what everyone thinks about Tim Hasselbeck?

I think his performances were admirable considering when he came in and where he was prior to that. He certainly wasn't perfect and his arm lacks a little but he's smart and he can execute. Should Gibbs hold onto him? He's a really solid backup, although I'm not sure he could hold the starting position.

I think if they bring Hass back, it will be to compete with Hamdan for the #3 spot. I can see Gibbs having a QB project, but not 2 on the roster at the same time.

I think Hass did well last year... but not well enough to win anything but a shot at someone's roster next year.
Sean Taylor was one of a kind, may he rest in peace.

That's a very good point and I agree with you. I forgot that Hamdan and Hasselbeck are only a few years apart in age... for some reason, I had it in the back of my head that Hasselbeck was older. Do you think his brother's success in Seattle under Holmgren might give him some cred? I watched both play in college at BC and Tim was much better than Matt, although the year I saw Matt play he was under Dan Henning (of all people) who didn't fair too well at BC.

maybe you thought Tim was older because he looks so much older!!!!

... he definitely looks older than 25.

I think matt has finally proved himself worthy of the starter's nod, but it took him a while to do so. I think Tim's going to have to go the same route.

But I do think that TH fared well enough last year that he will keep getting opportuinties.

I agree that he did a reasonable job bearing in mind when he was brought in - except against the Cowgirls.

Anyone know what Spurrier's problem was with Rob Johnson. I thought he was a decent QB, certainly a sound #2

I couldn't believe Johnson was signed in the first place. HE's never really succeeded anywhere... what made Spurrier think he would succeed in the burgundy and gold? Of course, Spurrier had Wuerfell and Shane "The Pain" as well so my question is almost stupid.

My understanding was that he flat just wasn't picking up (or perhaps executing) the Fun 'n Gun the way Spurrier wanted him to.

Pretty damning, for that matter, that TH could do so well with it after a month when RJ couldn't go after several months immersed in the system.

Because of his smarts, I definitely think TH deserves a shot (along with Hamdan) at the #3 spot. And, simply put, may the best man win!

Then who do you vote for the #2 spot? What QB's are available that could, and would be willing to, serve as a strong backup but won't cost too much?

I'm somewhat secure w/ our qb situation. A free agent QB is probable but Gibby will get a chance in NFL Europe. Hasselbeck is pretty solid. I like them both.

Keep Hasselbeck, let Gibby go. I know it might've been only the lack of an opportunity, but I have to believe that Spurrier would've put Gibby in after cutting Johnson (rather than going with the newly signed Hasselbeck) if the man had displayed any kind of skill at all. Say what you will about SOS, but he did want to win, and he didn't think he could win with Gibby.

I'm not really sure who's coming available--my guess is, there will be a number of vets released as their teams start gearing up for the draft and evaluating their needs. We may not move overly quickly in that regard. I kind of like the idea of Mark Rypien, but I don't know what kind of shape he's in these days. Maybe it's just sentiment talking. :)

Its funny that all non-Redskin fan seem to think Hasselbeck is better than P-Ram. I beg to differ. P-ram had to endure the long passing game, while Tim had a short controlled game put together.

You know, I hadn't heard that before. Thankfully, I'm not talking to those people, because they'd get an earful from me. Hasselbeck is a fine QB, to be sure. For arm strength and pedigree, I like Ramsey. (Don't mind me if I don't call him P-Ram. I'm too old to be hip.)
