Your Sunday NFL TV Viewing Maps, With Another Hasselbeck Working For Fox
So I'm pretty sure this is a first -- a current NFL player in the broadcast booth doing NFL game analysis. Welcome Matt Hasselbeck, current backup quarterback with in the Indianapolis Colts, and also current Fox football broadcaster. Is this, um, legal? Apparently it is, for now.
The Colts have a bye, so instead of taking the day off, Hasselbeck is having a taste of the family business. His brother Tim, an ex-NFL QB, is an analyst for ESPN, and Tim's wife, Elizabeth Hasselbeck, was once the token conservative on The View, and is now the latest blonde on Fox News (Fox and Friends).
Matt will join Chris Myers, Ronde Barber and Jennifer Hale to call the St. Louis Rams at Arizona Cardinals game at 4:05 p.m. (ET). It's not exactly the game of the week (see broadcast map below), but it could start a trend. Will other current players start invading the broadcast booth on game days? We'll see what Goodell says.
Meanwhile, key games include San Francisco at New Orleans (Fox early, Kevin Burkhardt and John Lynch) and Miami at Detroit (CBS, Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts). Why does the Houston area get Tennessee at Baltimore? Not sure. But, happy viewing.
