Mike Munchak announced at his weekly press conference that Matt Hasselbeck will be the starting quarterback against the Jaguars on Saturday if he is healthy enough to play, and he said there is no reason to believe that he will not be healthy enough to play. I find it really hard to believe that no one asked Munchak why Hasselbeck was limping on a stretch play if he is so healthy.
The scary thing to me here is that all of the things that Mike Munchak sounded an awful lot like Jeff Fisher in his answers today. It is clear to anyone who has watched Hasselbeck play over the last few weeks that something is not right- well clear to everyone except Munch.
Again, my point here is that Matt Hasselbeck is not healthy right now. It is obvious by the fact that he refuses to throw the ball more than 10 yards down the field. That is why Jake Locker should be the starter this week. He is healthy and gives the Titans the better chance to win.
