I guess i am definitely in the minority. I would take Mcnair in a heartbeat over Hasselbeck, mostly because of his running ability. I am probably going to get killed for this(judging from the responses so far) but i just dont see Haselbeck putting up the kind of numbers this year that he did last year. He is very high on my 'players who will fall back to earth this year" list. Don't get me wrong, i dont think he will fall off the face of the earth i just think he takes a bit of a step back. About 3500yards,20TD,10 Ints or something like that.
I suppose McNair lunges in for a few rushing touchdowns, but come on, who's he got to pass to other than Mason?
Hass's targets are getting bigger, faster, and stronger, and there might be even more of them this year.
McNair gets hurt too much. I would rather have Hasselbeck. If McNair would be healthy most of the year, I would take him hands down. BUT now we don't live in that little fantasy world now do we?
"Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time."
I'd take Hasselbeck by a nose, but feel confident with either one. IMO they're both usually overvalued for the spots they get picked in though, you can get similar numbers a few rounds later. McNair's biggest negative is probably his biggest positive though. Yeah, he's always hurt and that drops his numbers, but he also would play with his right arm missing, so you're virtually guaranteed some points every week.
