Matt Hasselbeck is the best quarterback in Seahawks history, the keel who steadied Seattle's offense in Week 1 through an awful start to an unexpected victory.
He's also the biggest reason Seattle's chances capsized in Denver on Sunday when he was picked off three times, all in Denver's half of the field.
Hasselbeck has been intercepted 14 times in the past six regular-season games, and for the first time in at least five years, Seattle has a quarterback brought in to earnestly compete with Hasselbeck after trading for Charlie Whitehurst in the offseason.
So is Hasselbeck's position a question in Seattle? Not for coach Pete Carroll.
"Matt's our guy, and we're counting on him," Carroll said. "We know that Matt gives us the best chance to win and he's doing everything he can to prepare and he's busting his tail and all that. He's doing a good job.
Matt Hasselbeck is still no better than a #2 QB in most fantasy leagues.
