"Learn the cadence, I know it obviously," Hasselbeck said. "It's not that hard to learn, but when you get in a live competitive situation I think I reverted back to some of my old stuff. But Geno (center Eugene Amano) and those guys up front did a great job hanging in there with me snapping the ball. I think I only went the wrong way once — that anybody noticed anyway."
Justin Gage said it won't take long for Hasselbeck to get up to speed according to Paul Kuharsky:
"In a day or two Matt will be right there with the rest of us. You can tell just from today, he’s a fast learner, he learns from his mistakes."
Mike Munchak said that Hasselbeck looked like a rookie running out on the field according to Jim Wyatt:
"I thought he was a young rookie he was so excited,’’ Munchak said. "I thought we had a good tempo going up until now but he really picked things up. He brought a lot of energy and excitement and I think the guys are really looking forward to watching him work. I thought he did a nice job."
