Nice Hasselbeck Quotes...

Recommended Posts

From the Colts.com story on our new back-up Quarterback.....

 

 

 

“I was really excited and fired up after talking to coach Pagano last night,” Hasselbeck said. “This isn’t something that (my family) took lightly. We are very, very excited about the opportunity.”

 

 

“(Luck) was a difference maker for that football team. From one year to the next, the most obvious difference was the quarterback,” Hasselbeck said.

 

“I just have a ton of respect for the kind of season that he had and the toughness that he showed in the pocket. He got beat up pretty good but he always came back for more, never rattled.”

 

While Luck took every snap for the Colts in 2012, Hasselbeck knows that is an anomaly for NFL quarterbacks.

 

Preparing as a starter is how Hasselbeck will go about his week-by-week business in 2013, wanting a chance to achieve the ultimate goal of getting back to the grandest stage.

 

“I feel like that I can help strengthen the team by being ready to go, being a guy that this team can count on, if necessary,” Hasselbeck said.

 

“I wanted to be part of something special. I wanted to be part of a team that has a chance to win a Super Bowl and I wanted to be working with really quality people.”

No doubt he's a nice guy.

 

Haven't really heard a bad thing about him... recently. 10 years ago, he wasn't that well liked in the league. 

 

Seems like he's eager to help Luck and happy to be here, and that's good!

Hasselbeck is a good guy. Trent Dilfer credits him with pretty much saving his life while in Seattle. Evidently, Dilfer was in pretty bad shape after the death of his son, and Hasselbeck took him in and helped get his life back together.

Hasselbeck seems like a really nice guy.  He is a pretty good football player too.  I think his experience will really come in handy, given that our offensive coordinator doesn't have much experience as an OC in the NFL.  His experience will help make up for the experience we lost in Arians when he went to Arizona

I just looked that story up. Matt sure does seem like a good guy....always thought that when I've seen interviews. They'd be hard pressed to find a better guy to back up Luck for the next couple years.

I just like that he's a prankster & practical joker. Matthew is just naturally funny. He often moves players cars during move in minicamp day. Don't leave your keys in the ignition rookies. haha  He did this a lot in Seattle as the starting QB. Yet, when it is time to hunker down & get to work he does exactly that. 

 

He looks nice with a shaved head too. A nice sphere for a skull not a deformed egg plant think of the money he saves on shampoo & hair products. Smart, laid back, thorough when the situation warrants it. A great fit for us!

I LOVE the Hasselbbeck signing... Always respected the dude and glad he will more than likely end his career as a Colt. As others have mentioned I think his brand of veteran leadership is a perfect fit for the team and I feel like hes the perfect veteran QB to be an extra set of eyes along the sidelines to help Lucks progression...

It doesnt hurt that he is familiar with the division either...

Goodstuff...

I like the fact that Matthew landed on a Playoff caliber team. He deserves to win a SB considering those less than stellar NFL zebras took away the Lombardi Championship from him & Mike Holmgren in 2005. It still royally ticks me off to this day. Pathetic officiating at Ford Field in Detroit, MI IMO...Redemption in INDY Matthew...Sweet  :lombardi:  redemption...

Hey, if Matthew Hasselbeck steps in for god forbid an injured Andrew Luck & gets the Colts to the SB in the next 2 years, can actor Bruce Willis play Matthew in the box office mega block buster film too? The resemble is scary good...Just Kidding!

I like Hassleback....except when they were playing us and he was abusing Cassius Vaughn and made this face lol.....

But he's a smart QB and still has "it".

Plus who in their right mind wouldn't keep throwing to any receiver Vaughn was covering? I think the mascot could have a career day against Cassius "unturnable neck" Vaughn.

Not sure if this was already brought up or not. McAfee said that MH is great in the film room, picking out weaknesses. He said that was Sorgi's strength in helping Peyton and Eli.

Kind of an expensive backup but may well be worth it.

He's been one of the few guys that, IMO, have been hard not to like.....even when you 'hate' him. Just reference the picture above. Love the guy's attitude and love that he's here. Who knows, maybe he'll help Luck get out of his awkward turtle shell?

Always loved Hassleback n felt he was dealt a bad hand in Sea(Felt he was used as a scapegoat upon his release from there too). Glad he's here honestly couldn't think of a more perfect fit for Luck's vet backup.

    • Steelers at 6-5-1 can be thought of as 6.5-5.5 (a tie is half win and half loss) and therefore mathematically slightly ahead of us right now.  Also, for the record the phrase is “death knell” and not “ death nail.”
    • The questions are very fair and really are what a fan forum is about, after all if you cant raise those issues here then where else do you do that?   Ultimately though, the premise is entirely subjective. What is balance? Balance to me isnt balance to you, and is different from balance to Frank Reich. Not too long ago, there were threads questioning why we were being conservative with JT, even though at the time he was on pace to average on the higher end of RB carries (i think he was on pace to have the 2nd most carries only behind Henry), now we have games where the complaints are about how he didnt get a carry at X point in the game, and then why he had over X number of carries (even though the bye week is next week and he gets a deserved rest), then next time it'll be why Hines got Y carry not JT, then why we passed 9 times on a certain drive instead of dotting in one run, it is one thing or the other.   At some point when 75% of what Frank Reich does brings up question marks, you start to wonder what a dog is really barking about. It sure isnt his football coaching, the results over the years have him as a top 5 (and t the minimum top 10) offensive mind in the league and lets not pretend Indianapolis has had a coach like that in a long time, if ever. It's one thing with Peyton leaving star dust on every player and coach he touched while here, it's another thing entirely when Carson Wentz, JT, and Pittman are carrying the burden every week, and dusting every defense and DC regardless of pre-game ranking.    Can we be better? Yes. Have we had a mind like Frank Reich here before? If we have, please point out that man to me. Can we play even better? Yes. Will there always be a talking point? Even if we win the SB, i get the feeling the answer is a sound yes. It's all subjective.
