You might enjoy these comments by Matt Hasselbeck, made on Wednesday.
On Coach Holmgren’s offensive changes: "I don’t know, I think he seems to go with what works, but today at practice was any indication or meanings, we’ve got a lot more shots downfield, a lot more things that are sort of wide-open, very aggressive offense. I think it gives us an advantage because if you’re going to play us, you haven’t seen a lot of what we’re about to do, so that’s exciting and that’s fun."
On liking a more aggressive offensive plan: "I think we all do, it’s just a matter of getting it done, of executing it, and being smart with it. It’s fun, I know the wide-outs are excited, I’m excited, and not that we’re not going to run the ball, we’re going to run the ball obviously, but it’s cool, it’s good."
On the offense becoming run-oriented the past few years: "I don’t know about that necessarily, but I know that we’ve been talking about certain things all season long this year, and he’s probably just at the point where he wants to try something new, think outside the box a little bit and give us a little change-up, make us harder to defend, and if that means throwing it in running situations, great, I think that it will just help us when we decide to run the ball."
On Seahawk fan’s reacting to Darrell Jackson’s return: "I don’t know, I really don’t know, I don’t really care either, to be honest. Whatever, I’ll say hi to him and then I’ve got to go play their defense."
On Monday Night Football: "Yeah I think it’s a big deal. It was passed my bedtime, when I was a kid I got to watch the 1:00 game, the 4:00 game, and when sixty minutes came on it was time to do your homework, and really I hadn’t even started it until right about then."
On if he feels a sense of urgency: "Yeah I think this is the obvious halfway point, a chance to take a look at what you’re doing and how you have been this season, and hopefully there is more than eight games for us. We know what we need to do to make that happen so, it’s an eight-game season at this point to determine our future and what kind of chance we have in the playoffs. It’s fun, exciting, and hopefully we can get this thing going quickly."
