Every Wednesday Tim Hasselbeck joins the show to talk NFL football. We asked Tim his opinion of Justin Forsett, and why he would start him the rest of the season:Tim Hasselbeck

“I think he’s a football player. If you’re a guy like Forsett who is a late round pick, or say you were a guy who wasn’t drafted, and you want to make your mark in the NFL, that’s what you have to be.”


Tim went on to say he does not feel Justin Forsett can be a #1 RB, but he is fully capable of being the Seahawks version of Leon Washington. Our interview with Tim also touched on the evolution of Drew Brees, who his favorite former Husky QB is, and more. The full interview can be found here.
