I agree about Henne but I think with Hasselbeck they are looking at his body of work over his career and the playoff win against the Saints last year.
Originally posted by OnTheClock:I disagree with the rating. It's lower than it should be, but until Smith starts winning he shouldn't be much higher than the 20's, and I can agree on that. Henne and Hasselbeck should be lower than Smith - see support below.

That playoff win, although I give Hasselbeck credit from returning from the back injury to do a solid job "managing" the game, I think most credit goes to their defense and running game (Marshawn Lynch) and their raucous fans in Seattle for winning that game.
Hasselbeck has done just about nothing in three years, and one good game against the Saints isn't going to change that fact. Arguing that Hasselbeck is better than Smith now, based on what he did four years ago, is asinine. Smith isn't great, but I'd take him over Hasselbeck in a heartbeat right now. Henne too. He's garbage. Very good OL and Brandon Marshall to throw too and he's done nothing.
