ASHBURN, Va. - Washington Redskins quarterback Tim Hasselbeck's first NFL start could come down to, of all things, a foot - namely, Patrick Ramsey's. Ramsey, the NFC's fifth-leading passer, is still hobbled by what team officials said is a bone bruise in his right foot, and his status for Sunday night's game at Miami is questionable. But Ramsey, who was hurt in August during training camp and has endured lingering pain since, said he plans to start. "This has been something we've dealt with all year," said Ramsey, who wore a protective boot and did not practice Wednesday.

Last week, I chatted with ESPN analyst and ex-NFL quarterback Tim Hasselbeck about San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers for an advance of the Ravens-Chargers game. While I had him on the line, I asked him about Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, who has had an up-and-down season in 2011, his fourth in the NFL. Hasselbeck told me that Flacco isn't in the same category as a player like Rivers, whom many feel is one of the top six or seven quarterbacks in the league. But he still thinks the Ravens can do big things with Flacco.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck will miss his fourth consecutive week because his hyperextended right knee is still weak, but coach Mike Holmgren said he sees "light at the end of the tunnel." Holmgren confirmed yesterday that backup Seneca Wallace will make his third consecutive start on Sunday when Seattle hosts the Philadelphia Eagles. This week, Dr. Robert Watkins, a noted back surgeon in Los Angeles, said a bulging disc in Hasselbeck's back is still weakening his knee.

Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has spent much more of his NFL career under the radar than under the microscope. In many ways he has enjoyed that, going from Seattle to Nashville, Tenn., and joking that he sometimes feels he has enrolled in the witness protection program. But the way Hasselbeck is playing, he can't hide much longer. Through four games, he has looked like the smartest free-agent acquisition of the season. His Titans are 3-1 heading into Sunday's game in Pittsburgh, and he's second in the AFC to the Patriots' Tom Brady with a 104.7 passer rating.

SEATTLE - Mike Holmgren stopped practice in the middle, gathered the Green Bay Packers in a circle and then fumed and kicked his way to an important lesson. Some defensive player had the nerve to level Brett Favre during a training camp drill in 1998, even though the quarterback wore a jersey colored red to mark himself off-limits. Holmgren's face matched the jersey's color immediately. It was lecture time, requiring a full-team address for the most cardinal of sins. "I want to let everybody know that you don't come near the quarterback," Holmgren said.

Ravens cornerback Chris McAlister had total faith he and his fellow defensive players would produce. When the team needed a defensive stand the most, he proved to be correct. Luck may have worked against the Ravens in losing the overtime coin toss, but the skill of the defense took over, limiting the Seattle Seahawks to one first down and forcing a punt in the team's 44-41 win yesterday at M&T Bank Stadium. "There wasn't no doubt anywhere in that huddle or on the sidelines that when the defense went out there, we weren't going to get the job done," McAlister said.

Matt Hasselbeck's comments after yesterday's 44-41 overtime loss to the Ravens began with I don't knows, I can't recalls and I guess sos. But who could blame the Seattle Seahawks quarterback for his purple haze? In one day, he had endured a miserable beginning to dominate one of the NFL's best defenses, only to lose a game of inches. "The game was so long," said Hasselbeck, a fifth-year veteran from Boston College whose team fell to 1-4 in road games this year. "With everything that went on, it's hard to remember it all."

ASHBURN, Va. - Washington is long accustomed to a two-party political system. But when it comes to the Redskins' quarterback competition, Tim Hasselbeck is making it a three-way race. At least if assistant head coach Joe Bugel has a vote. "Them other two better be careful," Bugel says of Mark Brunell and Patrick Ramsey, who will start tonight when the Redskins play the Carolina Panthers in preseason game No. 2. "It's not a twosome right now, it's a threesome." Hasselbeck has elbowed his way into the mix by demonstrating a knack for staying in the pocket and in the good graces of teammates and coaches.

ASHBURN, Va. - Even as the Washington Redskins welcomed backup quarterback Tim Hasselbeck to his first practice, coach Steve Spurrier hinted yesterday that the team could make more changes, including calling on a familiar face. Spurrier, who vowed to remake a team that fell to 3-4 after a 24-7 loss to Buffalo on Sunday, said the club could add another quarterback to its roster before the next game against Dallas on Nov. 2 and did not rule out possibly asking former Redskin Danny Wuerffel to return.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck accused the Ravens of questionable tactics on a key fourth down in his team's 44-41 overtime loss Sunday. Ravens linebacker Cornell Brown replied by insinuating Hasselbeck's show is ready for Hollywood. Hasselbeck remained on the ground after a failed quarterback sneak on fourth-and-inches with less than a minute left in the fourth quarter and the Seahawks up by three points. Replays showed Brown's forearm near Hasselbeck's throat. "My position, it looked like my forearm was across his throat," Brown said.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has been nominated for the Week 3 FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week award for the first time this season. Flacco established career highs in passing yards (389) and attempts (48) in Sunday's 37-7 rout of the St. Louis Rams. His passing yards were the second most in franchise history behind Vinny Testaverde, who threw for 429 yards Oct. 27, 1996. Flacco connected on 27 of those passes and threw for three touchdowns. Flacco's primary competitors for the award are the Tennessee Titans' Matt Hasselbeck (27 of 36 for 311 yards and two touchdowns)

Between Chris Palmer's masterful play calls and Matt Hasselbeck's perfectly-timed throws, the Ravens found no safe haven at LP Field Sunday. A week after forcing seven turnovers, their defense was taken apart in a methodical, precise assault. How quickly the table turned. The Tennessee Titans had all the right calls in a 26-13 win that left the Ravens' depleted secondary worse for the wear. Hasselbeck, 35 and a 13-year NFL veteran, carved up the Ravens' secondary for 358 yards and had Baltimore's proud defense on its heels most of the sun-drenched afternoon.

For nine seasons, Matt Hasselbeck was synonymous with the Seattle Seahawks and the NFC West. But for at least one year (2001), Hasselbeck was the starting quarterback for the Seahawks when they resided in the AFC West and faced the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers on a regular basis. Hasselbeck -- who now plays for the Tennessee Titans, who welcome the Ravens to LP Field Sunday -- said he's beginning to reacquaint himself to life in the AFC. "I'm not that familiar with the personnel in the AFC," Hasselback said Wednesday during a conference call with Baltimore media.

WALTER JONES SEAHAWKS T HT: 6-5 WT: 315 YEAR: 11 TERRELL SUGGS RAVENS LB HT: 6-3 WT: 260 YEAR: 5 When Jones is at the top of his game, he is the best left tackle in the NFL. He has the size to smother most of his opponents on running plays. He has good hands and quick feet, which allow him to force most defenders to the outside on a pass rush. Suggs has to become a factor as far as rushing the passer because the Ravens' cornerbacks can't stay with wide receivers Nate Burleson, Deion Branch and Bobby Engram for very long.

So we come to a close. With fantasy championship games unfolding this weekend, it's safe to label this another mystifying, frustrating and, of course, entertaining season of pretend football. We've learned that, given a few dangerous receivers, Tom Brady is just as much a statistical juggernaut as Peyton Manning. We've learned that Tony Romo is for real and that Marvin Harrison isn't immune to poor fortune. We've learned that injury, age and shaky line play can undercut even the most reliable runners.

The reviews are in, and the Ravens have given an overwhelmingly approving nod. Home Box Office's Hard Knocks: Training Camp With the Baltimore Ravens debuted Wednesday night and focused on many of the team's stars as well as long shots. Shannon Sharpe, Tony Siragusa, Rod Woodson, Ray Lewis, Qadry Ismail, Reggie Waddell, Dwayne Missouri, Todd Heap and former Raven Ortege Jenkins were all featured prominently in the piece. Jenkins was cut Wednesday, a scene that will likely air next week.

In the 1998 NFL draft, Ryan Leaf was the second player selected overall and Matt Hasselbeck was the 187th. Nine years later, Hasselbeck is the starting quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, enjoying a career that has taken him to the Super Bowl and the Pro Bowl. Leaf is the golf coach at West Texas A&M University after bouncing around four NFL teams. So, why did Hasselbeck flourish and Leaf flounder? In Hasselbeck's mind, it's because he was a sixth-round quarterback and Leaf was a first-round pick.

It was New Year's Day 1998, a day for new beginnings, when Mike Hasselbeck and his brother and his uncle all got on the same page while watching the Rose Bowl, the granddaddy of them all. Hasselbeck and his posse took their thinking outside the box by noticing how often Keith Jackson and Bob Griese, the ABC announcers, invoked well-known expressions during the telecast. Soon enough, Hasselbeck started compiling a list of the cliches. It didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that he could go for the gold, hit pay dirt and touch 'em all by creating a Web site of all the hoary phrases and expressions that sizzle through the sports consciousness like a hot knife through butter.
