Wow, no wonder Hasselbeck's numbers have been so average...

KRob is the worst receiver in the NFL. No other guy has such a negative impact on their team. It would be one thing if he both couldn't catch AND couldn't get open. Sadly though, he can get open so he gets lots of looks... only to fail his team time and time again.

Krob dropped one for a score.

STL announcers were laughing at him after the play.

I noticed the same thing about Robinson catching with his body. I actually saw one play where he jumped so he could try to catch the ball with his chest, just to see it bounce off. It was sickening. I was getting really pissed, at least I got to see first hand yesterday why Hasselbeck hasn't been the stud I expected.

Well outside of the big 3 so far this season, he's been about as productive as anyone else in the league.

Sorry, but you over-valued him apparently.

the eyes.

when I was listening to the broadcast yesterday they were saying that he has some sort of problem with his eyes, that's why he wears a visor. anyone know what that problem is? I mean, if he can't see the ball all that well would it be really that surprising that he keeps dropping it?

He has been outproduced by Harrington, Brees, Bulger, Testeverde, Brady, Favre, Delhomme, Rattay, Leftwich, Plummer, Brooks, and Carr in my league. Thats not what I expected, my two "backups" have been scoring more than him. He has been average for me, this was his most productive week of the season so far, and could have been much better.

As the game was national yesterday I got a chance to watch as well and I have Hasselbeck on my roster, so I watched closely.

2 of Robinson's 3 drops yersterday should have been caught. The pass that was thrown to him deep early on was overthrown and it would have been a spectacular catch had he made it.
That pass to M. Morris down the sideline was overthrown, no way he makes that catch. Hell, even the TD pass to Stevens was overthrown.
The pass to Jackson was behind him, that would have been another great catch.

I think people are paying too much attention to this problem and it's just making it worse. I think it's gotten to the point where it may be getting to KRob's head that everytime a ball is thrown his way he's afraid of not catching it.

I think Hasselbeck's got the right attitude. He just forgets about the drop, goes straight back to the huddle, and on the next play fires another pass his way.

The thing is, is that all the recievers are wide open, and there's plenty of opportunities in the passing game. Yesterday's game was the first time Seattle was stretched. I think as the season continues and they face more competitive teams, the offense will produce much more.
