A Pun Free Title: Hasselbeck's Status

New, comments

The health of Matt Hasselbeck may be the keystone for the upcoming season. If Hasselbeck is entirely healthy, the Hawks should contend for the NFC West. Make of this what you will, but T.J. Houshmandzadeh (via Bleacher Report) claims that Hasselbeck will be ready for the start of the season.

Asked during an NFL.com online chat whether he talked to Hasselbeck prior to signing with the Hawks, Houshmandzadeh said, "Yeah. I talked to him. I talked to him specifically about his back. He said that his back feels better than it ever has. He’s been working with a guy in Canada to strengthen his back and core section. It was reassuring."

A healthy Hasselbeck for the Seahawks in 2009 certainly beats the alternative. The Hawks still need to draft a QB regardless of Matt's health, but the bridge to the future QB looks much more smooth if Houshmandzadeh indeed heard the truth.
