Olbermann: Hasselbeck's performance was.... (1 Viewer)

Why does Dan Patrick allow Olbermann so much airtime. He spent the entire time ripping on Matt Hasselbeck....blaming HIM for the Seahawks loss and saying it was one of the worst performances by a QB in Super Bowl history......

What game was he watching?? :rolleyes:

Keith Olberman's schtick is so boring. He's great at pointing fingers and mocking people. He's an arrogant guy who really has no reason to be since his show barely registers in the ratings.

:goodposting: My point exactly. I think it makes Patrick look bad to continue to allow him airtime.....

I've never heard Patrick's radio show, but I'm guesing Olberman is on there because the two once combined to form the greatest SportsCenter team in history.

Have to agree in part, Hasselbeck was awful. He was overthrowing players all over the place. Poor clock management and poor decision making at the end of both halves.

Only thing is, Roethlisberger was just as bad...

I'm a Steelers fan and I disagree with you. I thought Hasselbeck played well and was hurt by drops more than anything else.

Worse as a passer, but the TD and the first down late in the game somewhat offset his suckitude throwing the ball.

Hasselbeck played well. His numbers would have been much better if his receivers had held on to the ball a little better. To blame him for the loss is absurd.

Just to be clear, you mean the TD that appeared not to be a TD, and the first down aided by one of the most egregious uncalled holds you'll ever see?

About 500 posts this morning and you're the only one who's mentioned seeing a hold on the first down.

:thumbup: Big Ben sucked. He had the worst SB performance of all time. QB rating of what? 23?

I've only been here about ten minutes so I haven't read all 500 posts, but I have seen it mentioned elsewhere today. Not sure who the receiver on that side was, but he basically had the defender in a headlock.

I agree with that. I loved Olberman on ESPN, and he and Patrick made a great duo. But since then, he's been horrible...As far as his comments about Hasselbeck. I didn't hear them, but from the sound of it, I think he's off base. No, Hasselbeck didn't have a good game, but one of the worst ever? Nah. Hell, Roethlisberger was worse, and he played in the same game! There have been some bad, bad performances in the Super Bowl in the past. Hasselbeck's was not one of the worst...

Not to be crude; but Keith, Dan, and anyone who agrees with them are uneducated d**ks! Then again, I already knew this about Keith and Dan.

Except that's not exactly what he said. His comment was along the lines of, "If Hasselbeck's fumble isn't over-ruled, we're talking about this as one of the worst performances by a QB in Super Bowl history. An INT in a critical situation, a fumble lost in a critical situation, and two of the worst instances of clock management ever."

And it's tough to say he blamed the whole thing on Hasselbeck when he went on to say Stevens was the goat of the game and that Holmgren's reputation was damaged because he played a significant role in their loss.

What game was he watching??  :rolleyes:
Perhaps nobody noticed, but Matt Hasselbeck was a few inches away from going 275 and 2TDs and 1 INT, and 3 sacks or... exactly what he averaged against the 34 defense for his career.http://forums.footballguys.com/forum/index...howtopic=224094

o_O

and you say stats don't mean anything.

I mean, if anything, it was Roethlisberger who played like crap.

Hasselbeck did more damage with his legs than Ben did. 35 yards rushing and some key first downs.Ben made a couple nice plays, but that doesn't offset anything. I can't recall a game where a QB didn't make any good plays, and I've been watching Joey Harrington for 4 years.

What? NO, man - Olbermann SUCKS.
I believe he should get his ### kicked for saying something like that, man.

You got to be kidding. Hasselbeck was the best player on the field "hands down". Roethlisberger was pathetic! His QB rating was 22.2. Hello?

I agree that Hasselbeck did not have a bad game -- it was his receivers that let him down.

That being said he was fortunate not to have had another pass intercepted in the first half -- it was right to Steelers CB Ike Taylor but he didn't catch the ball.

And he was also fortunate that Farrior got a few fingers on him before he fumbled because Hass was on his way down regardless and the fumble would not have been overturned.

Ben played a much worse game obviously but did make some big runs to move the chains and the play he made on 3rd and 28 was great. He also had a couple drops, especially the one to Ward in endzone that would have been a TD. And he made a key block on the Randel El TD pass to Ward.

Still, Hasselbeck clearly played better than Ben.

Stop the presses, the Seattle Seahawks receivers have the dropsies.....It's been going on for about three years now, granted with K-Drop cut and D-Jax injured surer hands have been on the much of field this year - seems like they just reverted to their old ways...

Best player on the field? :lmao: His play at the end of the both halves was some of the worst I've seen in a Super Bowl. Had an open Darrell Jackson twice and threw the ball out of bounds. Terrible clock management both times. Lousy audibles. Threw the ball to a WR who wasn't able to get out of bounds.

Aside from that, he had many more overthrows during the game, plus that awful INT. Only two scoring drives, and one was handed to him on a silver platter by the Herndon INT.

In total, he was 26 for 49, or 53%. That's sad. Take away three drops if you want, but 26 for 46 isn't much better.

Not that Roethlisberger was any better, of course...

KO must not have watched Big Bens performance in the game.

I would however put Holmgren and Reid in the worst coaching at the end of halfs in SB history.

ok so Olberman proved again that he is an idot. what else is new?
Actually looks like those who are speaking out bashing the guy without knowing exactly what he said are idiots...
