When you lose to an 0-13 team, can you blame anyone but the coaching staff?


Quickly, my two cents.

When you lose to an 0-13 team, I think it has to be blamed on the coaches. They simply didn’t do enough to get the team prepared or fired up. You could tell the players came into this game knowing it was a win and they just had to go through the steps.

More importantly, and what bugs me the most, is that we are sending out a guy to start at QB when we have a better option on the bench. Locker has played better than Hasselbeck, simple as that. Now give Hasselbeck a strained calf, and there is no reason he should be out there instead of our mobile Locker. Hasselbeck played very well at the beginning of the season, but since Britt went down, he has not been nearly the same. In fact, he has been the ditsy, silly mistake-prone QB the league has come to known the last few years.

The majority of Locker’s snaps have come against prevent defenses, so it is easy to say that is the reason for his great statistics. Going into halftime against the Colts, up 6-3, after several three and outs, and unmotivated and flat as ever, how do you not put the ball in Locker’s hands? He has that slam dunk ability where he can have an amazing run (see TD run against Siants) which immediately would pump up the team. Hasselbeck skipping the ball two yards in front of Hands or checking down to CJ on 3rd and long for two yards does not pump up the team.

Let me be clear, I do not mean to hate on Hasselbeck. He seems to be the definition of a professional and a superior teammate. But now, I say we put the ball in Locker’s hands and see what he can do against two fellow rookie quarterbacks in Gabbert and Yates. At this point, he is the best QB on our team, and why wouldn’t you play your best QB when you are fighting for a playoff spot?

Oh, and one final note. Coach Munchack, aren't you a hall of fame offensive lineman? We are 14 games into the season and I have yet to see you display ANY emotion. I think yesterday's loss would have been a great time to show it. I want to witness the wrath of Thorchack!
