Matt Hasselbeck on what's going on with John Carlson

Posted by Jose Romero

You might have seen my story on Carlson in today's Seattle Times. The QB was asked about Carlson today.

(On why John Carlson isn't speaking up and saying he wants more balls thrown to him) "Yeah. He's just too nice, maybe. Can you be too much of a team player? [Laughs.] I think that's where it falls, you know? He just does whatever you ask him to do, full speed, 100%. His dad is a coach and he's very respectful. Everything's 'Yes sir,' and he does it hard. But...I want him to succeed more than anybody. I want him to have a great year. But he's having a great year, he's just not catching a lot of balls. But I think the important thing for me is not to try to force it to him because of that, just let the plays unfold. He's been playing a little bit of a fullback position a little bit, but yeah, he's a great player. There's no doubt. He could have a breakout game anytime."

(On whether Carlson is getting held up at the line) "Yeah, but I think he does a good job with that. If I had to just point to one thing, I'd just say that the quarterback probably just has to throw him the ball more. [Laughs.] That's probably the bottom line answer."
