Video: Tim Hasselbeck on Max Hall
By Mike Sando
ESPN analyst Tim Hasselbeck says quarterback Max Hall's intelligence has stood out to the Arizona Cardinals' coaches.
Can Hall lead the Cardinals to an NFC West title? Hasselbeck, a former Cardinals backup, suggested the team will not ask too much from Hall. He also said the Cardinals wanted Hall to start a game at home before taking on Seattle and other opponents on the road. The team plays road games against Seattle, Minnesota and Kansas City over the next five games.
One question I have about Hall heading into Week 6: How much will the Cardinals abandon their three- and especially four-receiver tendencies playing in a hostile environment? Also, can the Cardinals run the ball well enough against Seattle's second-ranked run defense to take pressure off Hall and also the offensive line in pass protection?
