Whitehurst has the following stat line in the NFL. 2 rushing attempts, 13 yards, 0 passes, 1 TD. And here it is.
One would then assume that you are talking about the preseason. Lets say that actually means something. Which set of stats would you rather have? 2008 preseason: 26 of 53 for a 49.1 percent completion ratio, 251 yards, 83.7 yards per game, 1 TD, 0 INT, 3 passes of 20+ yards, 5 sacks, and a 69.0 passer rating. OR 35 of 67 for a 52.2 percent completion percentage, 284 yards, 71 yards per game, 1TD, 0 INT, 2 passes of 20+ yards, 6 sacks, and a 68.3 passer rating? OR 15 of 22 for a 68.2 completion percentage, 200 yards, 100 yards a game, 2 TD's, 0 INT, 3 passes of 20+ yards, 0 sacks, and a 127.1 passer rating Trick Question.

A quick history review: • In 2001, Seattle gave up its first-round pick (No. 10) and a third-round pick (No. 72) for Matt Hasselbeck and Green Bay's first-round pick (No. 17) overall. The trade was made in March. In August, before Hasselbeck had played a real game for Seattle, he signed a five-year contract worth as much as $24 million with a $2 million signing bonus.
Worked out pretty well for us.
I also look forward to this. And when Matt Hasselbeck adequately, neither winning nor losing the Seahawks games, I will chuckle a bit. Then when he gets injured, but toughs it out and continues to play, and then
starts to lose for the Seahawks, I will laugh more. Either way, we won't know until the middle of the season (probably). At that time if Hasselbeck is back to Pro Bowl form, feel free to quote this conversation in its own thread (preferably DT) and laugh at my foolishness.
Oh, I will.
