According to Pete Carroll's press conference this afternoon, Matt Flynn will start the Seattle Seahawks' second preseason game against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

Russell Wilson, in similar fashion to last week, will play the majority of the second half.

Also similar to last week, Tarvaris Jackson took first team reps in practice on Tuesday.

Carroll stated in his press conference that this lineup "reflects where the guys stand right now," indeed implying that Matt Flynn currently leads the competition. No surprise, really, given all the reports coming from camp, but a relief for Matt Flynn supporters nonetheless.

When Flynn makes his start this week, he will be throwing to a considerably better group of receivers. All injured receivers are cleared for play this Sunday, including Sidney Rice, who participated in contact drills today. Rice may not play significantly this weekend as a precaution, but Doug Baldwin, Terrell Owens and Ricardo Lockette definitely will.

Ultimately, the Seahawks should put on a good show come Saturday night, and hopefully more clarity and resolution will be had in this quarterback competition. (Here's to hoping that the team debuts those fashionable wolf grey alternates!)
