NO defensive coordinator Gregg Williams likes to send the house, so the 'Hawks QB should be prepared to see a lot of blitzing on Saturday. We all know Charlie's got better mobility than Matt, but does that mean that Hass would be killed by the blitz?
In part 1 of the playoffs podcast at the link above (about 34:00 in), Bill Simmons has a conversation with Aaron Schatz of Football Outsiders and Schatz brings up an interesting stat: Against blitzes of 6 or more, Hasselbeck has averaged 9.5 yards per attempt this season. Against 3-5 pass rushers he's averaging 5.5 yards.
Well color me surprised.
