After the Seattle Seahawks featured Charlie Whitehurst in his first NFL start last weekend and lost to the New York Giants 41-7, fans are calling for Whitehurst's head. The Hasselbeck naysayers have been silenced. Whitehurst promoters have gone into hiding.
Really, though, all this is a little harsh. It was a rough game for all those involved (at least on the Seahawks' side of things) and Whitehurst is not totally to blame.
He should be given another chance to prove himself.
