Quotable: Matt Hasselbeck Was Almost a Chicago Bear


A fun story from the Chicago Tribune about how Andy Reid, Packers QB coach at the time, was the only coach to show up to watch Boston College quarterback Matt Hasselbeck at a workout.  Later, Hasselbeck chose to be on the Packers practice squad over getting a roster spot on the Bears.

"I was in a system with Ron Wolf, who had picked all these
quarterbacks.  Mike Holmgren was the head coach, Andy Reid coached the quarterbacks, Brett Favre was the quarterback. That's better than going to Harvard Business School."
