Matt Haselbeck came from a great family and here is a very interesting story about him








Some football players don’t want to rival their shoe size? But they well rival their height and weight, and we can determine their shoe size with a standard measurement scale. So Matt Hasselbeck (the starting quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks) is 6’4” and his weight is 220 pounds, he should be a size 14 in shoe size. Some interesting information about Matt Hasselbeck then and now career, but Yes, we carry Matt’s shoe size. We go to a 17 in men’s length and 15 in women’s length as well. Now if Matt needs a wider width – we have up to 14 E widths in our line of shoes, and that is in Men’s and Women’s as well.

Matthew Michael Hasselbeck (born September 25, 1975]) is a National Football League quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks. He was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the sixth round of the 1998 NFL Draft and traded to Seattle in 2001. Since becoming the starter in 2003, Matt has led Seattle to six playoff appearances and a Super Bowl while being selected three times to the Pro Bowl.

Matt is the son of Betsey and Don Hasselbeck (a former New England Patriots tight end). Matt and younger brothers Tim and Nathanael grew up in Norfolk, Massachusetts and attended Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood. He was selected as an honorable mention All-American by USA Today as a high school senior.

Matt spent one semester at the California Maritime Academy in Vallejo, California before transferring to Boston College near his family’s hometown. He played for the Boston College Eagles football team from 1994 through 1997, including two years with his younger brother Tim. Matt finished his college career as the team’s starting quarterback (a position his brother Tim would later hold with the Eagles). He graduated with a degree in marketing and finance.

Matt was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the sixth round (187th overall) of the 1998 NFL Draft. He joined the team’s practice squad in 1998 and then backed-up starter Brett Favre.

Matt joined former head coach Mike Holmgren and the Seattle Seahawks on March 2, 2001. The Packers traded him, along with their first (17th overall) and seventh-round draft picks, to the Seahawks for their first (10th overall) and third-round draft picks.

In his early years in Seattle, he battled for playing time with Trent Dilfer.

However, after a strong finish in 2002, Matt entered 2003 as the unquestioned starter. Matt started all 16 games, leading Seattle to a 10-6 record for the first time since 1988 and a wildcard berth. He also was selected to the Pro Bowl.

In 2004, Matt won the 2004 NFL Quarterback Challenge. He also led Seattle to their first NFC West title since realignment in 2002. The 2003 divisional playoff game against the Green Bay Packers went into overtime where, at the overtime coin toss, Matt infamously said: “We want the ball, and we’re gonna score!”  During the second overtime possession for the Seahawks, Matt threw an interception to Packers defensive back Al Harris, which was returned 52 yards for a touchdown. It gave Green Bay a 33-27 overtime victory.

In 2005, Matt had one of his most productive career performances, earning the highest passer rating in the NFC, and leading the Seahawks to the playoffs for the third consecutive year. He led his team to Super Bowl XL, which it lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers, and was the starting quarterback for the NFC in the 2006 Pro Bowl. During this season linebacker, Lofa Tatupu joined the Seahawks. Lofa’s father Mosi had been a teammate of Matt’s father Don during his time with the Patriots.

Matt led the Seahawks to a 4-1 record to start the 2006 season before being seriously injured in Week 7. Minnesota linebacker E.J. Henderson rolled into Matt’s right leg. The result was a second degree MCL sprain, causing Matt to miss four games. Matt contended that Henderson could have avoided injuring him. Upon returning, he subsequently broke fingers on his non-throwing hand but continued to lead his team to a 9–7 record and the divisional round of the post-season. The fourth-seeded Seahawks defeated the Dallas Cowboys 21-20 in the wild-card round in Seattle, then lost to the top-seeded Chicago in overtime, 27–24.

In 2007, Matt led his team to its fourth consecutive division title and a fifth consecutive playoff appearance. He had 3,966 passing yards, 28 touchdowns (both career highs), 62.6% completion percentage, and a 91.4 quarterback rating. He threw for 229 yards in a 35-14 NFC wild-card victory over the Washington Redskins. The third-seeded Seahawks lost in the divisional round to the NFC’s #2 seed Green Bay, losing 42–20 in the snow at Lambeau Field despite an early 14–0 lead.

Matt set career highs in yards, attempts, and touchdown passed in the 2007 season and was elected to his third Pro Bowl.

In 2008, Matt suffered a back injury that affected a nerve in his lower back, creating a weakness in his leg that brought on a knee injury. Matt twisted his back awkwardly in the preseason opener on Aug. 8 at Minnesota and missed the rest of the preseason. His bulging disk was diagnosed and treated with injections, and he opened the regular season as the starter, but he hurt his knee after a hit early in the Seahawks’ loss to the New York Giants on Oct. 5. He also received a helmet-to-helmet hit vs. the Arizona Cardinals. These injuries caused Matt to miss most of the 2008 NFL season.

In the 2009 season opener, things didn’t start out well for Matt, who threw two picks in the 1st quarter. After that Matt dominated the rest of the way, completing 25 of 36 passes for 279 yards and three touchdowns in their 28–0 win over the St. Louis Rams. During Week 2 of the 2009 NFL season, Matt fractured his rib against the San Francisco 49ers and missed the next two games against the Bears (Week 3) and the Colts (Week 4). During week 5, playing the Jaguars, Matt threw four touchdown passes in the Seahawk’s 2nd shutout of the season, beating Jacksonville 41-0. In Week 6, Matt played his career worst, losing to the Arizona Cardinals with 27-3.

During the final week of the season, Matt won the Seahawks’ prestigious “Steve Largent Award.”

In 2010, the season started off strong for Matt, leading his team to a 4-2 record and solid victories over the Chicago Bears and San Diego Chargers. But the degree of Matt health would prove to be inconsistent, with injuries leading him to sit out crucial games later in the season, leading the Seahawks to lose 7 of their last 9. Nevertheless, Seattle would make the playoffs with a divisional win at home against the St. Louis Rams with second-string QB Charlie Whitehurst, clinching the division and home field in the Wild Card round. Following some controversy, Matt was chosen to start in the Wild Card game against the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. Despite being massive 11 point underdogs and the only losing regular season record in playoff history(7-9), Matt had one of the most memorable and clutch performances of his career. He threw for 272 yards, four touchdowns(a franchise and postseason record) with just one interception coming from a tipped ball, and a 113.03 quarterback rating.

Matt married his college sweetheart, Sarah Egnaczyk, on June 17, 2000. The two knew one another since age 17, and she was also an athlete at Boston College, playing with the field hockey team. Together they have two daughters, Annabelle (2002) and Mallorie (2003), and a son, Henry (2005).

He has been struck by lightning twice, only suffering minor injuries. His wife Sarah was also struck by lightning once and escaped with minor injuries.

He is the brother-in-law of television personality Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who is married to his brother Tim Hasselbeck.

Being that Matt Hasselbeck is a 14  (estimate size) in shoe sizes, and we carry three lengths past his size, we carry up to a 17 in length for men and for women we carry up to 15 in length. I don’t know Matt’s width but if he needs a wider width, “Extra Wide Shoes’ or “Wide Wide Shoes” then we have that for him as well being that we carry up to 14E width, and that is women’s as well.

We have the best athletic, casual, dressy designs, walking styles of men’s and women’s in the Therapeutic/Comfort line of shoes in the country. We have the length and the widths and were proud of our designs and construction in the world of “Women’s Wide Shoes”. Any person that needs a proper fitting width needs to know that the shoes need an extension on the sole of the shoe to properly house their foot with no hangover with their feet to the shoe. What is meant that every width, with us (in a good percentage of our shoes), have two widths wider at the outsole of the shoe? So if you need a 6E width, we’ll have an 8E bottom for the base of that width. So again no hangover for your feet and a perfect base for your feet to have all the support and balance that is needed.

A Comfort shoe is usually not a Therapeutic shoe, and a Comfort shoe usually has very little midsection support. The lack of the Mid Section support allows your feet to be moving forward and lateral at the same time. These two movements add a great deal more wear and tear on your feet.
