Hasselbeck a Lion?

Postby psmvchaser » Tue Jan 25, 2005 9:30 pm

Just heard a rumor from a friend that is a waiter at Benihana. He said Charles Rogers came in and was saying that the Lions are going to release Harrington prior to June. He also said the top QB's on their list are Matt Hasselbeck, Drew Brees and Jon Kitna.

Interesting rumor, I would love to get Hasselbeck. I think our wideouts could catch those passes right on the numbers, unlike Seattles.

I think it is of course possible. Hasslebeck wants a nice, fat contract, and Seattle might not deliver. Hass is in the market, like SA is, until Seattle resigns, franchises or deals with this matter at hand.

I don't think the Lions would complain, the closest thing to a competent QB they've had in the last 10 years is Charlie Batch.

Oh man, this is crazy! I admit Hasslebeck probably isn't much better than Harrington, but I don't think Batch is any better. Come on guys, can you believe at one time a couple years ago we had "The Magic Man" as our third string. I don't care what anybody says he should have been our starter. Come on Cheesehead he was pretty darn good at Green Bay. I said once before it would be nice to get a veteren like Warner, but now I'm starting to doubt myself. Because he'd probably end up becoming a starter and dying on the field from so many sacks. So, I think all I can say is that we really, really need to find some one who can handle some pressure, because that's all they're going to be feeling in that backfield or pocket. I love my Lions, but they've gotta do something dramatic in the QB position, offensive line, and a little more in all defensive postions. Which is more than what I think can be done in 1 offseason. But, until the day I die. GO LIONS!!! ;-D
