I don't think Curry is the obvious choice. While he may be the sexy pick because he's such a high draft pick, I think someone like Hasselbeck is primed to be the MVP. He's going to be back supposedly in better shape than he's been in a while, we've got a supposedly revamped O-line with a high-round pick anchoring either guard or center, and he's got a whole stable of really good wide receivers and tight ends to throw to.
The running game has not proven itself to be worth anything with the personnel we have (and granted, with the crappy passing game last year, it was doomed from the start...). Coupled with Housh, Burleson, Branch, Carlson and the crew of younger guys who may finally step up under less pressure than last year, Hass is bound to have an awesome passing season.
Book it - this is the year that Hasselbeck breaks 4,000 yards passing and has his best season yet. All the doubters will be gone by week four, and he'll be a shoe-in for MVP by week 12.
