On Sunday, two big zeros were erased from the NFL landscape – the Colts’ potential freefall toward 0-16 and the Packers’ bid for a 16-0 season.
Sometimes it’s nice just to be wanted. Just ask Matt Hasselbeck.
As I reported earlier today, QB Matt Hasselbeck isn’t in the Seahawks’ plans, but the Titans have definite interest. A league source said the 49ers and Vikings also are interested in his services.
It appears increasingly unlikely that Matt Hasselbeck will be back in Seattle.
While some view Kerry Collins as the best option to start for the Titans, Matt Hasselbeck has ties to the organization, and NFL Network information man Jason La Canfora sees Tennessee as a solid option if he doesn’t return to Seattle.
The reality of a condensed offseason means teams are better off looking at their own free agents — understanding their deficiencies, age or injury history — as providing the best options to win.
The Titans got their quarterback of the future when they drafted Jake Locker with the eighth overall pick in the NFL draft. But just who is their quarterback of the present?
The Titans, like the rest of the NFL, are awaiting a new collective bargaining agreement before they determine which route they can take to address their quarterback needs.

Before we turn our attention to the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, let’s take another quick look back at the MVPs of wild-card weekend.
NFL Network’s Rich Eisen points out that Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck is showing some of that 2005 moxie that helped lead Seattle to its first Super Bowl.
For the second straight week, we have a Charlie Whitehurst sighting. This time around, though, it’s because starting QB Matt Hasselbeck left Sunday’s game during the first quarter with a hip injury.
