Matt Hasselbeck joined KJR-AM in Seattle to talk about whether he would rank Saturday's game among the best of his career in terms of excitement, and how he has dealt with all the emotions throughout the season as the fans chanted Charlie Whitehurst's name, but now he is the toast of the town.

In terms of excitement, how he would rank Saturday's game among the best of his career:

"Well it was great; it was a lot of fun. I think you have got to probably put it in that playoff category. There have been some good ones and there have been some tough ones. We lost a tough one to Chicago in the playoffs. ... The one I threw the pick to Al Harris in Green Bay, those are tough ones. ... I look back to this one and this was a thrilling one. Marshawn put the exclamation point on that one at the end of the game. We watched the film today and it really could have gone either way. Guys stepped up and made some big, big plays. We were prepared and we had a good day. Things were rolling and things were clicking. That was a good football team. We made them look normal at times because of the way that we played&"

Whether he is aware that a seismic wave was registered around the stadium when Marshawn Lynch scored late in the game:

"Yeah, I heard that. I actually saw that graph. It was pretty amazing and it is down to the second. They said it was at one of its highest points when he crossed the goal line and one of its highest points when they showed the replay, I mean down to the second. That is pretty powerful. We might have to run that play again. That was the only time we ran that play all game. I don't know if you give credit to the player or give credit to the runner and the blocker, but it was an awesome play."

How he has dealt with all the emotions throughout the season with the fans chanting Charlie Whitehurst's name, and now he is the toast of the town:

"Well, I am just assuming that these people had too much to drink. Maybe that was the four extra ounces of free beer they were getting. That is the most logical explanation that I can come up with."
