This doesn't make sense to me. Starting Hasselbeck automatically makes us miss the playoffs. Starting Locker gives us a chance. This is just the way I see it. I'm not sure how you can think our chances are better with Hasselbeck. I just hope after 0-4 (assuming that's our record), we don't do something stupid and start Hasselbeck. Because guess what? He'd actually start winning more games - only due to a soft schedule. That would kill Locker's confidence because everyone would be talking about how MH is saving our season and better than Jake. Jake being a C+ QB at this point is a positive... and the only way for him to get better is to start games and get experience. We are still a rebuilding team. We know we can't go far with Hasselbeck, so why waste a year of Locker's NFL career by sitting him when he could be improving game after game? Jake is sure as hell a lot better than most young QBs are when they start out... even some of the elite ones in the league today didn't do as well.
