New Orleans Saints set to face Matt Hasselbeck again and they know his capabilities well
 
When last seen by New Orleans Saints fans in a context that mattered, quarterback Matt Hasselbeck was guiding the Seattle Seahawks to a wild-card playoff victory over New Orleans last January.

On that day, Hasselbeck passed for 272 yards and four touchdowns, completing 22 of 35 attempts with a gaudy quarterback rating of 113. Saints quarterback Drew Brees had typically impressive statistics, passing for more than 400 yards and two touchdowns, but the Saints lost.

On Wednesday, as the Saints prepared to face the Tennessee Titans, now quarterbacked by Hasselbeck, in Nashville on Sunday, Brees acknowledged that playoff loss stung. He has a lot of respect for Hasselbeck and is friendly with him off the field, but defeat has a way of stimulating the competitive juices.

"Yeah, a little bit, because you know what a guy like that is capable of," Brees said. "But, yeah, any time you play a quarterback of his caliber. Certainly we remember what happened the last time we played a Matt Hasselbeck-led football team. That was in the playoffs, and I thought he played a stellar game. So as if there wasn't already enough motivation to go out and play extremely well, you kind of have that extra competitiveness because you're going up against a top-tier quarterback."

I think GW will make him a special project this time around. Hasselbech is going to pay and pay dearly.

Pull Harper NOW!

Just kidding, but he better have something to prove this time, and they better be watching Hasselback film, not Titans film.

Have to stop the run first.

Ha!! Hasselbeck? "Top tier QB"?! LMFAO!!!

Look I'll admit he sliced through our defense last year and he's had a decent season, but I think Drew is patronizing him a bit!

I'd say he's a top 10. He's just not consistent and gets dinged up a lot.

When he plays his A-game, he's extremely good.

I just don't think the Titans have the offense to compete with ours, and the defense is certainly not ready to handle it...

We said all this before the St L game &....

One game at a time EVERY game is important to a huge degree. We MUST stay ahead of the Fal-Clowns & it owld be great if SF lost & we won to move closer to that #2 seed
