There's one other twist to making this year's offense better than 2005's. Alexander, who had 27 receptions in his last 26 regular-season games, will have to become a bigger part of the aerial game. "A major point of emphasis on offense this off-season has been throwing the checkdowns to the back," Hasselbeck says. In other words, instead of forcing the ball into small spaces to wideouts, Hasselbeck will dump it off to Alexander. If Alexander can't do the job, don't be surprised to see Holmgren occasionally sub for him on third down, maybe with staff favorite Leonard Weaver, a 242-pounder out of Carson-Newman in 2005 who had an impressive training camp.
