Matt Hasselbeck won’t be taking days off

Published on October 6, 2010 by     T.C.

Thanks to the bye week and the generosity of head coach Pete Carroll, the Seahawks have the next several days off. But for quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, the time off won’t be used for rest and relaxation. He plans on working.

“Well, it is an off week,” Hasselbeck said. “Pete has really given us off, but I’m not going to treat it like I’ve treated other ones in the past. I’m going to treat it a little bit different. I’m going to really try to focus on Chicago, this is going to be a really, really tough game for us. We have to go on the road; they have a really good pass rush with four guys. They are a team that’s 3-1 right now and they’ve done a real nice job. So we have to find a way to improve, we have to find a way to show our best this next game.”

So what exactly can he do in that time? It’s not as though as he can get guys together to practice. And I doubt he’ll be out running win sprints. Nope most of his work will be film study.

“Exactly (what), I’m not sure,” he said. “But I’ve got a laptop which has all the plays; all their plays, all our plays from the year, similar to everything that I have at my disposal with the quarterback room. So I’m going to spend a good amount of time on that.”

Hasselbeck knows that how this offense has played is unacceptable.

“We clearly need to be better, we know that,” he said. “It’s been made clear, it’s evident. We can be so much better, we really can, but we have to do it. We got to come out here with a little more passion, a little more energy, a little more confidence, and just cut it loose. You have to play smart, but you also have to cut it loose. You have to have that emotion and you have to be aggressive. You can’t play hesitant; you have to be sure about what you’re doing and do it 100 miles per hour. And we’ve done it before we just need to do it again.”
