That was awful. The Jake Locker and the future-is-now discussion was all the buzz last week. It was at full tilt by the third quarter. Matt Hasselbeck struggled, throwing two big INTS (including a pick-six) while averaging just five yards per pass attempt. Mike Munchak is not a knne-jerk guy, clearly, or else he would have played Locker this past Sunday in Indy. Still, with the Jets loss, now is the time to go for the wild card. Make the move, big guy.
