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.
22/35 for 272 yards with a rating of 113.0 with 4 touchdowns and 1 int is not managing a game. Its coming out and dominating. I watched that game and he played magnificntly. Even the accouncers were pleased with the way the veteran played.
Arguing that Hasselbeck is better then Smith now, based on what Smith may do in the future is asinine.
This ranking is a little harsh but its not that far off. Funny how 5 guys on here think they know more then guys who do this for a living and in the same breath bash the haters for thinking they know more then Harbaugh.
