EAGLES FANS all have opinions on who should be the starting quarterback next season.
There's the "anybody but Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez" camp. Others are praying for Tim Tebow. Still others are hoping the 49ers' Colin Kaepernick ends up in midnight green.
No one has mentioned Matt Hasselbeck.
OK, so he's not the answer. But, he's doing some pretty impressive things in Indianapolis.
On Sunday, the 40-year-old, 17-year veteran, threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Colts to a 25-12 win the Bucs.
Hasselbeck has won all four of his starts filling in for Andrew Luck this season. And with Luck out until mid-December with a lacerated kidney it would seem the Colts are in good hands.
Sunday, in his second straight start, Hasselbeck outplayed rookie star Jameis Winston to lead the Colts (6-5) to their third straight win. He also won back-to-back starts in Weeks 4 and 5.
"He's not playing like he's 40," said T.Y. Hilton, who caught both of Hasselbeck's TD passes. "He's out there having fun, making sure guys are in the right spot and letting us make plays. He's fired up and wants to make sure guys are in the right spot so he can make plays."
Teammates aren't the only ones giving Hasselbeck props.
On Sunday, ESPN's Trey Wingo tweeted: "On behalf of old guys everwhere . . . keep doing your thing @Hasselbeck."
Making a point
In an unbelievably mismatched women's college basketball game over the weekend, Siena Heights University defeated Great Lakes Christian, 91-1.
The Lakes (0-7), who compete in the National Christian College Athletic Association, have lost two other games in which they failed to reach 15 points.
The four-year school, founded in 1949, is located west of Lansing, Mich. This is the college's first season playing women's hoops.
