    I think Hasselbeck ends up as the QB for the Bengals.

    I'm open to Matt Hasselbeck on the Titans, and he's been my #1 option. But, I don't think he could lead us to the playoffs. I also do NOT want us to trade for a QB, so really it's McNabb (if released) vs Hasselbeck.

    So let's compare:

    Matt Hasselbeck: 35 years old
    2010: 14 G - 73.2 QB Rating - 59.9 Comp% - 3,001 Yards (214.35 ypg) - 12 TDs/17 INTs - 60 R. Yards/3 TDs - 29 Sacks

    NOTES: Hasselbeck has been injury prone and hasn't completed an entire 16 game season since 2007, and only 3 times in his 13 year career has he started all 16 games. He's obviously on the decline, but has played with a great QB (Favre) and a good QB (Dilfer) and also some good coaches. Led Seattle to six playoff appearances and a Super Bowl appearance while being selected to three Pro Bowls. Would be cheaper than McNabb, and would probably settle with a backup/mentor role better. Showed flashes of his old self in the playoffs. 2 Games: 530 Yards, 7 TDs, 1 INT, QB Rating: 102.4

    Donovan McNabb: 34 years old
    2010: 13 G - 77.1 QB Rating - 58.3 Comp% - 3,377 Yards (259.77 ypg) - 14 TDs/15 INTs - 151 R. Yards/0TDs - 37 Sacks

    NOTES: Has been injury prone as well, has played in all 16 games since 08, and then not again since 03. Had a bad year with the Redskins, and is likely to get released. Signed a big contract extension, so I doubt any team is willing to trade for him. We will have more competition to sign McNabb, IMO. 6 time Pro-Bowler, and 1 Super Bowl appearance. Would likely cost more, and be unlikely to accept the backup/mentor role.

    Personally, I think Hasselbeck would be the better option.

    What makes you say that? I can see them going with Dalton because Palmer's not gonna play for them again.

    Something tells me Hasselbeck is the guy we go after. I don't think that Timmy Hasselbeck would put TN out there like that if there wasn't something to it. Carrol doesn't have a clue what he's doing out in Seattle. So I can see Matty wanting to leave.

    Between Hasselbeck and McNabb I'd vote McNabb.
    He's the better QB and I think he would embrace the mentor role but as a starter.
    But, if you're looking at Hasselbeck and McNabb as starters then I would also look at Kyle Orton.
    Orton is a productive QB he's younger and he has system familiarity.

    And Palmer not playing is the reason they need a QB.
    The Bengals are in same market for a veteran QB as the Titans, Vikings and Panthers.
    Also, Jay Gruden is installing the WCO and Hasselbeck has been a WCO QB his entire career and probably knows the system as well if not better then Jay.

    I don't think Munch and Titans are looking for more then a 1 year placeholder.
    But, if they are McNabb, Orton and Hasselbeck would be at the top of my list.
