Matt Hasselbeck Returns to the Nest
This Monday night, former Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck will step on to Seattle’s CenturyLink Field for the first time as an ESPN analyst. Alongside his former Seahawks teammate Trent Dilfer and the Monday Night Countdown crew, Hasselbeck will preview the Buffalo Bills-Seattle Seahawks matchup (5:15 p.m. PT, ESPN).
The 18-year NFL veteran spent 10 seasons in the Pacific Northwest, leading the Seahawks to the playoffs six times and to the first Super Bowl appearance in franchise history in 2005.
Hasselbeck spoke with Front Row about his time in Seattle, his favorite memories as a Seahawk and what kind of impact “The 12s” – the Seahawks’ famed flag-waving fan base which is notoriously loud – have on their hometown team.
