"If you have two quarterbacks, you have none," sports commentator Skip Bayless once said. The old adage seems to suit the Seattle Seahawks.
Seattle had the incumbent Tarvaris Jackson before it brought in Matt Flynn from Green Bay Packers to be its starter. To top off the trio, it drafted the University of Wisconsin's Russell Wilson, who has been the most impressive thus far.
Jackson might not play against the Broncos, which will hurt him in the quarterback battle.
Flynn, on the other hand, will get the start. Flynn was on-point but with minimal results last week. He went 11-of-13 for 71 yards and had one interception. He moved the offense, just as head coach Pete Carroll wanted. The more action Flynn gets, the more results should follow. He's the team's highest-paid quarterback and expected to start, but it's not a sure thing.
Wilson remains Flynn's main competition. He dazzled everyone with his performance in first week of the preseason. He went 12-of-16 for 124 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He added 59 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Wilson is hoping to prove that his height, just 5-foot-11, is not a problem.
Flynn appears to be the starter. But, if he continues to have minimal results and Wilson continues to excel, it is going to be really tough for Carroll not to start Wilson despite Flynn's contract.
It's possible that one of the two could separate themselves in the game against Denver.
