The Armani Archetype: Rams Likely Fight Seahawks Without Hasselbeck

The Seattle Seahawks Prepare to Battle the Rams Without Matt Hasselbeck
Christina Armani

As if it things weren't going the Rams was as is, now Pete Carroll has announced that the Seahawks would move forward as if reserve Quarterback Charlie Whitehurst is going to be the starting quarterback for the Sunday Night Football game. While it's still uncertain if Matt Hasselbeck will come back or not, what is certain is that he's limited in his mobility. There will be no official news on Hasselbeck until Friday or Saturday but so far this is good news for the Rams.

What does it mean for the Rams if Whitehurst plays? Whitehurst has completed almost 56% of his passes, thrown for 315 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions during the course of this season, including starting one home game against the Giants. He has a unimpressive 54.7 passer rating. Obviously Sam Bradford has a higher passer rating and he has a coach and team who has a lot of faith in him.

One part of the issue with Whitehurst's struggles has been the fact that Carroll has not opened the offense up for the strong-armed quarterback because of his concerns that he'll make too many costly mistakes if he's allowed to push the ball down the field. Whether it's Hasselbeck or Whitehurst as quarterback the Rams are going to win the game. Go Rams!
