Hasselbeck off to Career Start

Posted by Gary Glenn on September 29, 2011 – 11:15 am

These notes just in from our media relations staff:

Titans QB Matt Hasselbeck arguably is off to the best start of his 13-year career. He has completed 78 of 112 passes (69.6 percent) for 932 yards, five touchdowns, two interceptions and a passer rating of 102.2

Hasselbeck has passed for more than 300 yards in the last two games (358 vs. Baltimore, 311 vs. Denver). Prior to this season, he had never reached the 300-yard mark in any game in Weeks 1-3.

With 300 passing yards Sunday at Cleveland, it would mark the first time in Hasselbeck’s career that he reached 300 yards in three consecutive games. It would also tie for the second-longest streak in franchise history, trailing only Warren Moon’s four-game 300-yard streak in 1990.

Hasselbeck’s 932 passing yards rank third in franchise history through the first three games of a season, behind only Moon’s 989 yards in 1990 and 970 yards in 1992.

Hasselbeck already is within 55 passing yards of having one of the top five starts to a season in franchise history. With a 214-yard performance on Sunday, he would rank second over the first four games, trailing only Moon in 1990 (1,344).

Pro Football Talk pointed out this week that league-wide, there have been 33 300-yard passing performances through the first three weeks of the season, shattering the old mark of 21.

Through the first three games, nine quarterbacks are averaging more than 300 yards passing, including Hasselbeck. The other eight are Patriots QB Tom Brady, Saints QB Drew Brees, Panthers QB Cam Newton, Chargers QB Phillip Rivers, Lions QB Matthew Stafford, Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, Cowboys QB Tony Romo and Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.

    I am a Seahawk fan true and true. Now that Matt is there I am also a Titan fan. I am so glad he and the team is doing so good. And I have to say I am happy we don’t have him too, with the line we have he will be hit so much and he doesn’t deserve that. Good luck to all the Titan fans out there and hope to see you in the Superbowl, I have a feeling that the other team I watch doesn’t have a chance with a rebuild year every year..

    Go Titans :-)

    SO happy to see that Hasselbeck is thriving! As a die hard Seahawks fan it was so sad for me to see him go. I have been following the Titans ever since! Matt always set the tone for the rest of the players on the Seahawks, and I don’t know of anyone who ever did not respect the guy. He is just a great person, on and off the field. Not much happening in Seattle since he left, so I’ll be tuning in to Tennessee now and again to check up on him, and the rest of the Titans. Good luck, Titans! Make us proud, Matt!

    I was very sad to see Matt leave Seattle, I knew he could really help make the Titans a HUGE threat so I am not surprised you guys are doing so well. Hope you get your ring Matt, even if it’s not with Seattle!!
