Hasselback said the MVP will be his.
Hasselberk said he’ll take the honor with pride, too.
He said it was his way to celebrate being a Colt.
Haskelberk was one of the first quarterbacks drafted in the NFL.
He was also a two-time Pro Bowler and was the team’s all-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns.
Haske has been the Colts’ franchise quarterback since 2011 and will turn 39 on Feb. 22.
The Colts have won six straight games and 11 of the last 12, including five straight to start the season.
The team had won five straight after a 3-1 start.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Hasselberg is going to take pride in the team winning this season.
Pagano has been criticized in recent weeks for not putting enough emphasis on the team and its young players.
Pagani said that’s not what matters most.
Pagane has said the team has been better than expected and that’s why the franchise is not expected to win again.
Hasheberk started two games and has completed 65 of 76 passes (81.6 percent) for 774 yards and four touchdowns with one interception.
He has also thrown a touchdown pass in the last four games.
The Indianapolis Colts have lost seven straight games.
Colts owner Jim Irsay was fined $50,000 by the NFL for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.
He pleaded no contest to misdemeanor reckless conduct.
Hasseberk is the third quarterback in Colts history to win the NFL MVP award.
The last two were Tom Brady and Brett Favre.
The NFL also announced that Manning will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Sunday.
