Where would prime Matt Hasselbeck rank in the current NFL?


Recommended Posts

His prime lasted the 18 games before the Super Bowl in 2005.

He was a 98.2 rated QB then, a 91.4 in one other year, and sub-90 the rest of the time. I guess he did a really good job with a 7-9 team in the 2010 playoffs too,

He earned 2 pro bowls and he won a popularity contest over Aaron Brooks another time.

I'd say he is somewhere below Kirk Cousins and close to Derek Carr.

 

The game is different now. Teams don't let you just be a decent QB most years for 10 years anymore.

I guess the money is a factor. Someone like Trubisky who showed enough in year 2 would get a years 5, 6, and 7 to see what he really is unless he imploded.

In Hasselbeck's case he peaked at age 30. Trubisky turns 27 right before next season.

Top 10. Hasselbeck was at his best 2003 to 2006, and certainly one of the better passers in the league for a short stretch. 

 

That says more about QB play from 2003-2006 than it speaks to Hasselbeck

Nope. There were a lot of great passers at that time.

No it wasn’t. It was like dark ages. Better than 99-02 but not great.
