    If he needs surgery I'd rather he go ahead and do it so he will be as ready as possible for 2013. I hate to say it, but this team is going nowhere this season regardless. There's just no fixing this defense mid-season. We have the worst defense in the league and a mediocre at best offense.

    We're 1-3 overall and 0-3 in the conference. Playoffs are a pipe dream. Thinking we could actually go deep if we were to make it is just pure insanity.

    I more or less agree. I am more worried about his long term health, this season didn't have high expectations to start with. I seen a statistic some where stating teams that start 0-2 have a 12% chance of making the playoffs. Even if we did, we would be a one and done team. We would gain some experience but would have no real chance at making the superbowl, so what would really be the point?

    Hopefully some good will come out of this situation though. Perhaps it will persuade our front office and coaches to look better in the draft and free agency and find our young QB and even CJ (granted I don't think this is the only problem he is having) better quality interior offensive linemen. Stewart and Roos are solid players, the 3 interior guys are a joke. Even when Amano is healthy hes mediocre at best.

    Here's the question. If he has the surgery, I'm hoping the coaching staff doesn't bank on just rolling with Hasselbeck and Rusty, do they sign another QB? Is there even anyone halfway decent out there?

    That said, Locker should have the surgery. I had the same thing happen to my shoulder playing in college, never had the surgery and still regret it. I think he should do it. We're heading nowhere this season anyway.

    Jake Delhomme?
    Luke McCown?
    Max Hall?
    Billy Volek? lol
    Donathon McNabb?
    Kyle Boller?
    AJ Feely?

    I think we would be better off just rolling with Rusty and Matt....

    I'm sure they'd sign another QB. But it'd be Hasselbeck starting the remainder of the season, barring injury. Heck, when our playoff hopes are mathematically squashed, I wouldn't mind seeing The Rifle starting the rest of the season. Let him get some more real game time and see if he's worth keeping around as a backup.

    That's what I was getting at. It's Hasselbecks job but he's not so dependable in the health department either. Man, this sucks.

    Even though we aren't going anywhere this season, he needs to play for the experience. If he gets the surgery and then starts next season, he's gonna be an inexperienced QB still.
