    He was downright awful yesterday. He was one of the main reasons we could not get anything going. I have never seen him that confused or that bad. He looked like a combination of Jake Delhome and Kerry Collins put together and his inability to complete passes and sustain drives killed us early on. This caused the game to get out of hand!

    Wait... didn't you make a "What if" thread about Hasselbeck potentially lighting it up yesterday?

    I agree with you. I honestly think if Locker starts that game we win. The D held the Vikings to 13 pts in the 1st half, and 10 of those pts came off of Hass turnovers. Compound that with the complete inability of Hass to complete a pass more than 5 yds down the field, and the D was yet again put in some very tough situations. Even when Babs came up with the int in the 2nd half which could've been a game changing play, Hass couldn't move the ball down the field and score anything to get any momentum. It wasn't until the Vikings started playing soft D that Hass did anything.

    If Lock is playing then I think we score a few times in the 1st half, and have a competitive game until the end. I also don't think the Vikings score as much with Locker in there because we probably hold on to the ball a little longer.

    I've been calling him "Passbehindyourbec", all his passes are behind the receivers, like WTF.... He has NO arm strength left. I'd rather play Rusty if Jake can't go on Thursday.

    Hass's play has fallen off some from last year, but the pass blocking has fallen off MUCH worse! Our offensive line is taking sucking to a level I've never seen in the NFL. The Vikings were in Hass's face almost instantly without even blitzing!

    Actually Hass was holding on the ball far too long as well!

    That's because the Vikings could drop everyone back in coverage because their D-Line pushed through our O-Line like a hot knife through butter. Nobody was open because the Vikings don't respect our O-Line. Nor should they.

    It's not like Locker's been lighting up the scoreboard himself.
