Titans, Hasselbeck playoff bound

Matt Hasselbeck has been treated during free agency like he's Joe Montana. He's not but he's good enough and in Tennessee he'll be good enough to lead the Titans to the playoffs.

I've confirmed Hasselbeck has agreed to terms with the Titans. Deal isn't signed but it's done. I love this move. Combine Hasselbeck with that pulverizing ground game and the Titans can be scary.

You now have a quarterback on Tennessee defenses must account for. Hasselbeck isn't dazzling but he's accurate enough and with defenses so concerned about stopping Chris Johnson it will open things up for Hasselbeck.

Hasselbeck has joined Tennessee. The playoffs are next

Besides the Titans players and fans, who cares who is their quaterback. All I know is they're playing the Colts twice and that means 0-2 for the Titans. Are they going to win their division? NO. Are they going to the playoffs? NO. Is Hasselsucks going to last the entire season without getting injured? NO. Sorry Titans, just having a new coach and quaterback is not going to automatically make you a better team than the Colts. I predict they will be 3rd or last in their division and after the 4th game, you guys going to realize why Seattle gave up on Hasselsucks. Glad it's your problem now.

What magical potion does Tennessee have that will keep Hasselbeck healthy?  Why didn't Seattle know about it?
It's called an offensive line. Tennessee's has blocked for a 1,000-yard rusher every year for the last decade and has historically been in the top 5-10 in fewest sacks allowed year in and year out. Plus they have a HOF offensive lineman as the new Head Coach AND Offensive Coordinator. What's not to like?

Let me see if I have this right...last year's forth place finisher (6-10) in a four team division is going to make the playoffs with a new coach and limited time to prepare just because they have a new (old) QB.

Last year's AFC Wildcard teams were 12-4 and 11-5. Indy was 10-6...soooo what your saying is that the Titans will be at least better than 10-6 and win the division with Peyton Manning in it...REALLY...Who writes this kibble?

Freeman:  I love this move. Combine Hasselbeck with that pulverizing ground game and the Titans can be scary.
As a Titans fan, I hope you're right. And I like the signing.

However, the reasons against Tennessee making the playoffs are numerous...
  1. New head coach and coordinators.
  2. Lock-out = less time for players to learn new plays and schemes.
  3. Linebacker deficiencies.
  4. Kenny Britt's status.
7-9 looks a lot more realistic at this point.

Wow. We've already cued Jim Mora , now let's add Cris Carter & John McEnroe. "Come on man, you can't be serious!" Wtf, because they signed Hasselbeck, who is mediocre at best?! Nuff said.
