Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Tuesday, March 1 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
Matt Hasselbeck Inducted Into National Quarterback Club Hall Of Fame
One of the most prolific passers in Seahawks history and the newest member of the Seahawks Ring of Honor now has yet another accolade to add to his résumé, as Matt Hasselbeck was recently inducted into the National Quarterback Club Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2021.
Hasselbeck was one of three quarterbacks to earn the nod this year, along with 17-year NFL veteran Steve Beuerlein and former Eagles great Donovan McNabb. Former Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren, who coached Hasselbeck for eight seasons and entered the Ring of Honor alongside Hasselbeck last season, inducted the quarterback during the ceremony last weekend.
Hasselbeck played 10 seasons for the Seahawks from 2001 to 2010, leading the team to six playoff appearances and its first ever Super Bowl appearance in 2005. Following his tenure in Seattle, Hasselbeck played two seasons with the Tennessee Titans and three with the Indianapolis Colts before retiring in 2016.
Over his 17-year career, Hasselbeck totaled 36,638 passing yards with 214 touchdowns and 153 interceptions for a passer rating of 82.4.
