Who Should Start At Quarterback for the Seahawks? [POLL]
The Seahawks will have four quarterbacks going into training camp this summer. Who should start this season? Tavaris Jackson was the starter for the Seahawks last season, leading them to a 7-9 record and finishing out of the playoffs. Jackson battled through a pectoral muscle injury, showing how tough he is. Backup Charlie Whitehurst is gone in free agency, leaving second year man Josh Portis as the other returning quarterback. The Seahawks are on record as saying they like Portis’ potential.
The Seahawks drafted Russell Wilson from Wisconsin in the third round of this year’s NFL draft, and both coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider are very happy with the pick. Wilson could be the Seahawks qurterback of the future.
The Seahawks also added Matt Flynn in free agency. The former Green Bay backup has only started two NFL games, but in his last start on New Year’s Day, Flynn lit up the Detroit Lions. He threw for 480 yards and six touchdowns, beating the Lions 45-41. He also has studied behind current league MVP Aaron Rogers for the last four years. It’s fairly safe to assume that after signing a three year $24 million deal, Flynn will be the man.
