Hasselbeck says Whitehurst's presence has him more focused

Published on June 3, 2010 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Matt Hasselbeck is still the Seattle Seahawks’ starting quarterback. But he knows that new coach Pete Carroll thinks highly of the newly acquired Charlie Whitehurst, and he says the competition is making him more focused this offseason.

“Well definitely,” Hasselbeck said on 950 KJR, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. “I think everything that’s happened from the shock that we got when they made the head coaching change – it was sort of like oh, wow, everybody be on alert, the last two years have not been good enough. It was probably unfair to put it on one guy like that, but it was basically like everybody should be on notice.”

Hasselbeck says the emphasis on competition that started with Carroll has trickled down to the rest of the roster, himself included.

“We’ve had more roster turnover this offseason than I can ever remember,” Hasselbeck said. “Ever remember hearing about on any team, never mind just our team. I think it’s one of those things. Guess what guys? We’re trying to make changes. We’re trying to make changes, trying to change the atmosphere around here, change how you guys have been going, you guys have been going downhill, we’re trying to make a 180 degree turn and go uphill and get back on top.”

So far, the starting quarterback hasn’t changed. But with Whitehurst now on board, Hasselbeck knows it could.
