As for the Seahawks quarterback battle, Matt Flynn did...all right in his first start at C-Link.
On the bright side, he didn't burn the house down as he managed to put together a nice long drive that led to a field goal in the first quarter while completing nearly all of his passes in going 11-of-13 on the night.
On the other hand, he didn't quite set the world on fire as he only threw for 71 yards, got sacked twice, threw an interception and fumbled at one point.
Given that this was his debut in front of the home crowd, it's only natural for him to be a little nervous. At the moment, it looks like Flynn is moving in the right direction, but we still have a ways to go before we can start talking about making the postseason.
Before we get started, we all have to understand it's only preseason and he played in the second half of the first exhibition.
Outside of getting intercepted in the end zone following Heath Farwell's fumble recovery, Wilson had a great night. (Besides, I liked the idea of the 'Hawks going for the jugular at that point even if it didn't work.)
What I liked was watching Wilson on just about every play before and after. He threw, he ran, and he made the second half thoroughly entertaining from beginning to end. No small potatoes for a debut, and one that I, along with the better part of Seattle, will be curious to see if he can build upon in the coming weeks.
