Re: Hasselbeck calls Roethisberger a girl
FWIW-I remember that '05 season-the game we played against them in midseason was gut wrenching. We pretty much beat them up physically throughout at Qwest Field, but some bad playcalling in the red zone AND a missed chip shot by our kicker opened the doors for a miracle comeback at the end for them(with 2 minutes to go, they engineered a drive to tie it a minute and a half or so later, then Bledsoe threw a pick at the end of regulation that set up their game winning 50 yarder).
Otherwise, I'm not sure the Hawks would have gone to the Super Bowl-prior to our game with them, there were pretty mediocre, but that game just turned their season around in a big way.
Anyhow-the Hawks are lucky to be in a very, very, very bad division. Hassellbeck and most of their other players like Alexander are just merely good(at best), and their D is pint-sized, but it's more than enough for them to churn out 11-12 wins + 1st round bye.
