Here are my answers to 5 Questions for Craig Gottschalk of Nice Pick, Cowher.
Hasselbeck fulfilled every expectation. I know that you can look at the stats and get a pretty good idea on how well Hasselbeck has performed, but his on-field veteranship (if that’s a word) seems to have elevated everything about the passing game to a new level. In short, most Titans fans would say that Hasselbeck exists as a godsend right now. I think by about week 7, people will start talking Pro Bowl in regards to Hasselbeck and if you watched him in Seattle, and if you know football, you shouldn’t be surprised. He was great, but didn’t have a line capable of pass blocking. Whereas in Tennessee, Hasselbeck’s line boasts two of the best tackles in the NFL, at their respective positions. Unfortunately, the interior doesn’t maul people over in the run game and that’s why we see so many problems for the running attack.
