How excited are Titans fans about the acquisition of Matt Hasselbeck now? Heading into the season many fans that I talked to were scratching their heads and wondering why in the world the front office wanted to sign an old vet like Mr. Hasselbeck. Leading into week 3 I think many people know exactly why he was signed and are very excited come game time.
Hasselbeck is giving us something we havent seen in years, a pure gunslinger who is smart, accurate and has a quick release of the ball. Thru 3 games Hasselbeck is the #8 rated QB in the NFL and is completing almost 70% of his passes. He’s thrown 5TDs to 2 ints and he’s only been sacked 4 times.
With the loss of Kenny Britt sure to affect the offense in a negative way it is that much more important that we have a guy under center that can lead the team, get rid of the ball quick, and be accurate….and that’s exactly what we have.
With the NFL season not even a month old we must remember that this is a marathon and not a sprint and hope that father time helps Matt reclaim the fountain of youth and avoid the injury bug that he has been so succeptible to in recent years. Let’s also hope that he’ll be quick to develop a report with our young WR corp.
