2. Matt Hasselbeck

We have now come to the guy responsible for one of the biggest "oof" moments in the history of the league. Seahawks fans should know it well.

"We want the ball and we're going to score," Hasselbeck said before throwing a pick-six to end the game.

For those unfamiliar, google that phrase. I'll save Hasselbeck the embarrassment, here.

Overall, Hasselbeck had a phenomenal NFL career and spent nine years with the Seahawks. He was drafted in the sixth round by Green Bay back in 1998. The former Boston College standout never appeared in a game for the Packers before finding his way to Seattle.

As a Seahawk, Hasselbeck would go on to make three Pro Bowls. One of his best all-around years came back in 2005 when he led the team to Super Bowl XL where they would ultimately fall to the Pittsburgh Steelers. That season, Hasselbeck threw for 3,459 yards, 24 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

His legitimately best season in Seattle came in 2007 when he threw for 3,966 yards, 28 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Hasselbeck sits second all-time in Seahawks passing yards with 29,434, having thrown 174 touchdowns and 128 interceptions.
