After spending time as Brett Favre’s backup in Green Bay in the late 1990’s, the Seattle Seahawks acquired quarterback Matt Hasselbeck prior to the start of the 2001 season. Hasselbeck went on to be their starter for the entirety of the decade, garnering three Pro Bowl selections in that time and leading them to Super Bowl XL in 2005.
He eventually retired from the NFL in 2016, and decided to join his brother Tim, who was working as an analyst for ESPN. Matt replaced legendary head coach Mike Ditka on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown show. He also works on ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown broadcast as well.
