Maybe it’s just too early in the morning in Phoenix for Colts owner Jim Irsay to be too excited.
The Colts have officially added backup quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, with perhaps the most low-key Twitter announcement Irsay’s ever made.
Other guys have gotten multiple exclamation marks, but maybe after he referred to Hasselbeck as a “soft pillow” last night, Irsay is still a little sleepy.
From a football standpoint it’s a coup for the Colts. Hasselbeck’s still enough of a quarterback to fill in for a few weeks if Andrew Luck rolls an ankle but he’s clearly OK with being a backup at this stage in his career.
