Seattle, we may have a problem

I’ve been a Matt Hasselbeck fan for quite some time, to a fault at times (he was one of my big sleepers of 2001, and he busted). I’ve also been enamored with the Seattle offense for a while, and with good reason. But I gotta say, I’m a little worried about this offense right now. Hasselbeck’s supporting cast seems to be slipping. The O-Line isn’t what is once was, RB Shaun Alexander is close to reaching the downside of his career, and his receiving corps is a little unsettled with that loser Jerramy Stevens gone. Stevens will be replaced by Marcus Pollard, and there is no way Pollard will give them the vertical threat down the seam Stevens did, so despite Stevens’ drops and issues, the Seahawks will miss him.   

Additionally, WR Darrell Jackson and/or Bobby Engram could be right behind Stevens. Engram could very well leave via free agency (New Orleans would be a great fit), and Jackson’s future is very much in the air. He’s been the subject of trade rumors due mainly to his injury issues.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
