'The View's' Elisabeth Hasselbeck rocks 'NFL Live,' 'SportsCenter'
We realize the men of ESPN's "NFL Live," Trey Wingo and Tedy Bruschi, were not exactly pelting Hasselbeck with tough analysis questions, but they weren't just lobbing her softballs either.
Some highlights include when Hasselbeck was asked to weigh in on new Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey and the fact that his job was a tough one to fill. Hasselbeck remarked:
In this economy, if a job been open that long, you gotta wonder about the job. Every single person [approached to be] on that staff is going to be having this conversation with their wife and family, "Hey, we're going to a team. It's in a really tough division. We're going to play the Patriots twice. We're going to see Miami twice. They don't have a really good market and the weather's kinda bad. What do you think about the move?"
That is not only decent analysis of the situation but got a laugh out of us too.
Hasselbeck also pointed out that Rex Ryan as head coach of the New York Jets used to work for Baltimore, so Peyton Manning and the Colts got a sneak peek at the Jets' defensive scheme when they played Baltimore this past weekend.
Finally, when pressed for her picks in the AFC and NFC championship games, she went decisively with the Colts and then said the New Orleans Saints were going to win due to "home field advantage, the emotional support there and Drew Brees' ability to distribute the ball."
Say what you will about Elisabeth Hasselbeck, but she knows her stuff. We found her engaging and charming on ESPN. Here's some video of a segment they did where Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Matt Hasselbeck competed to see who knows Elisabeth's husband Tim Hasselbeck better (Matt is Tim's brother).
And here's Elisabeth being interviewed on "SportsCenter."
Watch your back, Erin Andrews.
Look for Elisabeth's husband Tim to join the ladies of "The View" on Jan. 28.
