I'm sure this is coming from MH as well. The, or one of, biggest accomplishment you can have as a backup QB who is on his way out is to win enough games to keep the team's playoff hopes alive. If we lose and HOU wins this week, I would bet Matt sits Week 17

I think so too, since there wouldn't be anything to play for. I would assume Andrew would get shut down at that point too. I just think it's crazy that a banged up guy who is falling apart is apparently a better option than putting Whitehurst out there. Says a lot about Whitehurst no doubt.

Heard that too, but I don't recall where. He did a great job early on. I suspect he would do a great job if only he had to play a few games scattered across the season, but extended, consecutive games is taking a toll on the guy. I have always liked Hasselbeck, but now, I also have a tremendous amount of respect for him.

Matt's wife retired from her news position today. She probably thought she needs to spend more time with her husband while he still has all his mental faculties. :)

 

This is awful but I must admit, I laughed.  lol.

I'm a huge Chuck supporter (hmm...don't think that one came out right), but even I am shaking my head on this one.  MH has shown me nothing the last couple of weeks, and the couple of passes CW threw looked like they had some zip on them.

 

Gotta give Whitehurst a chance to start this game.  He can't do worse than lose - and we already do that now with consistency.

Looks like he will start Sunday. I bet he can't wait for the season to end. As I said before, I know he gets paid to play, but I doubt he ever expected to play this much (especially as he's getting so banged up).  

Ok this I can hardly believe...perhaps he realizes this will be his final outing and he wants to go out on a higher note...the guy is just beat to death. Is this really a wise decision given the hits he's sustained in recent weeks? You can see the confidence level the Colts have in Whitehurst Lol !!

He was talking about the game last week.

Not the season.

 

IDK why it was taken out of context.

Yes but he meant in general if you read the whole article. He knows how beat up he is, Mentally and physically.

I won't lie to ya QuizBoy. Part of me wonders who talked who into starting this game. 

 

Just the way Hasselbeck's head slammed into the ground last week scared me man. Remember, he's 40 not 25. 

 

I love Matthew's competitive spirit but I don't wanna see him get busted up either.

Very well said CC. Charlie is so bad that beat up middle aged QB is our only hope. I just don't like our odds here at all. 

 

Miami's got nothing to lose & neither do we...It's gonna both bloody & brutal...

Matt is a tough dude indeed.  Hopefully Suh doesn't fall on him, then step on him, fall on him again then proceed to step on his head.............

I'm just glad that DE Cameron Wake is on IR with a torn achilles  M-432. Whew!

It will help this garbage OL at least with him not in the mix that's for sure.  I'm not sure if I see them winning this one @ Miami.

I'm with ya man. Unlike the mediocre Joe Philbin, interim HC Dan Campbell actually has the fins hustling to the ball & bringing decent pressure on defense. I don't see a clear cut W for us this weekend either my man.

How many millions does he make? I don't feel bad for him at all.

Suh is going to eat Jonathan Harrison alive. Poor Matt.

he gets paid to play football

An IndyCar racer that hits a wall at 200+ MPH is getting paid too. :) Not the best analogy, but I'm sure Matt has felt like he hit a wall more than once this season. The O line is like Matt's car with no seat belts.

I don't have much confidence in us winning this Dolphins game. And of course it all comes down to this pedestrian offense.  I don't care what the Dolphins record is, Tannehill is good enough with the team he has around him to score more than Hasslebeck.  As big as a fan I am I just can't make myself even look at the playoff possibilities.  I can barely make myself watch the game at this point.  They might as well start Whitehurst because we know Hasslebeck is going to give us two quarters before Harrison gets bull rushed back into his legs or against his ribs and he's knocked out of the game.

Elizabeth Hasselbeck isn't Matt's wife... She's his Sister in Law... Married to his brother.

When a defense knows the opposing QB can't throw the ball accurately more than 10 yards, it's pretty easy to stop the offense. 

 

This game could get ugly.

If I was on a trivia show, I would have lost over that.

 

Tim Hasselbeck, retired QB, is Elizabeth's husband. Matt Hasselbeck, Tim Hasselbeck, 2 short first names and both with little to no hair.

Maybe Hass will start the game and Whitehurst will take over after the half?

 

 

 

...or whenever Matt fails to get off the turf under his own power - whichever comes first.

    • Ballard didn't say it was definite.   He didn't rule it out.   He just said as of this minute.    I think he's hoping to find out in April and May.      He still might end up deciding Eason is OK as the back-up.   I was only trying to impress upon those in the "Throw Jacob Eason in and see what we have" crowd that Ballard has crushed that dream for 2021.    But I wouldn't rule out 2022....  at least not yet.  
    • TY - 2Y/22M - he can still play but he’s not Tyreek Hill taking the top of defenses anymore, and with his disappearing act at the beginning of the year I’m afraid to sign him any longer or with too much guaranteed. Partly for sentimental reasons I want him to stay, but I do think he’s still got some juice.    Mack - 1Y/1M - Likable player but due to his position and injury, no way can I justify giving him much more than vet minimum.    Houston - 1Y/8M - Fell off a lot this year compared to his first year. Still our best edge player, basically by default and I’d be hoping we can get a more 2019 performance out of him at arguably our weakest position on the team.    Autry - Walk. He will price himself out with an inflated sense of value because he’s gotten decent sack numbers, but he is the definition of JAG and I’d only keep him if he agreed to a minimum contract.    Rhodes - 1Y/6M - He was a stud this year. If we could guarantee that he won’t revert back to his last two years in Minnesota I would be willing to go longer and higher. With how much he fell off after getting paid the first time, I’m not giving him a long term deal.    Walker - 1Y/2M - He was playing a very small percentage of downs at the end of the year so I’m keeping him less based on ability and more based on leadership and football savvy.    Hooker - Walk. Both sides need to just move on. I’d keep him at minimum too but I think both sides want a fresh start. Also a little miscast in the current defense so no reason to force a square peg into a round hole.    Brissett - 1Y/5M - Too big of a fan of Brissett as a man to want to see him leave. I don’t want him starting but he’s a very solid backup and compared to the 20M we gave him last year, I can live with his salary being at 1/4 of that this year.    Pascal and MAC both tendered at 2.24M. I want to bring in Kenny Golladay or Allen Robinson and Pascal is JAG so he’s not falling into my future plans much. I’m a big fan of MAC and I wouldn’t mind seeing him play the Jack Doyle role. He’s a better blocker, has better hands, and is more explosive.    I may be lowballing some guys but I’d hate to fall into the trap of overvaluing our guys and keeping them just because you want to keep your own. Unfortunately, I think the five most important positions on the team also coincide with our five weakest positions on the team; QB, WR, CB, DE, and LT. Fortunately we’ve got a good cap situation and this is the perfect year to be needing a QB. 
    • If we let Walker Walk, (and I think it’s likely) it’s not because we want an upgrade.   It’s because we simply don’t play him enough.   I think East Street has the numbers in snaps, but I think Walker is roughly playing 25-30 percent of the snaps.   That’s it.    We can't pay him enough for that.   Some other team will PLAY him more so they will PAY him more.    When Walker is off the field, we are either playing a 4-2-5 or a 4-1-6.   Leonard plays basically 100 percent of the snaps and I think Oke is about 55-60 percent.     There is a method to our madness.  
    • I'm surprised some folks want to resign Walker. Imo we definitely need an upgrade.... I'd let him walk.
    • Colts have won one playoff game in 6 seasons. Some more losing seasons and this team is no longer even in the top half of NFL franchises. They would be mostly irrelevant. I can’t imagine Irsay going for that.   Ballard is definitely safe...but this is year 5 and I am assuming there is a bit more urgency than just waiting for the perfect opportunity to come along.
