Seattle Post Intelligencer: Seahawks Matt Hasselbeck says that dealing with the
which began in August and never was right for the entire season - will help him
moves forward. "Just even the short time I was doing (the rehab), I felt like I
more velocity on my ball and I was throwing it farther," he said. "And that's wh
hurt." The pain of standing and watching far too much of the team's 4-12 season
greater than anything going on in his back. "I was just very disappointed that I
part of it," Hasselbeck said. "I just feel like I didn't have an opportunity to
season, and I didn't help - I really didn't add anything good to the team's chan
into the playoffs and accomplish some of our goals." His goal next season will b
complete the season. It didn't happen in '08 because: He took a hit and twisted
in the preseason opener, which prompted the medical staff to shut him down until
regular-season opener; his right knee was hyperextended in the Week 5 loss to th
Giants, which led to his missing the next 5 games; and then he was smacked by Co
LB DeMarcus Ware in the Thanksgiving Day loss at Dallas, which ended Hasselbeck'
season. "Sure, you have to think about the future, and Matt is not going to play
Ruskell said. "He is still playing at a high level and he is still our QB, and w
good about that. "At some point, you will have to plan for the future, and we ar
cognitive of that."
