At the same time it seems that Carroll is never satisfied with what he has.
A few months ago Tarvaris Jackson was the Seahawks' starting quarterback, Matt Flynn wanted the chance to play as a starting quarterback, and Russell Wilson simply wanted a chance to play at the pro level.
Today it's hard to tell how this situation is going to unfold.
Quite frankly, it's hard not to think Carroll would like it any other way. Generally speaking, it's not a good or bad thing when it comes to building a roster.
Yet it is a bit of a concern if the situation doesn't solve itself sooner rather than later at the most important position on the team.
Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports penned an interesting piece on the topic a short time after the rookie camp:
But shouldn't the Seahawks have had an answer by now as to who will be their top option for a long-term successor to Matt Hasselbeck? Shouldn't there be some sense of commitment to Matt Flynn, the former Green Bay backup who was signed in free agency? Shouldn't Tarvaris Jackson get more than one season to show his ability?
Fair points, and a few of which I'm sure we will see play out over the next couple of weeks. Until then, as Cole concludes:
The team is still hop-scotching from one candidate to the next faster than a night of speed dating.
While that isn't a guarantee of failure, it's also far from an assurance of success.
And if you don't have success at quarterback, failure is likely.
With that said, what about the rest of the roster?
