Matt Hasselbeck Says...

"I just try to be a great teammate. I try to be someone who keeps it light. We're all at work, but I try to make it feel like we're not at work. I try to make it so it's fun, so we can't believe we get paid to do this. Whether it's double sessions or training camp or padded practice and you're a lineman and you've had a tough day going against a fellow 300-pound guy all day. I just try to distract you, make it fun for guys. It's just my style."
