Most reports out of Seahawks camp the last week have said all 3 QB's are running neck and neck. But word out of Pete Carroll today is telling isn't it?
Carroll announces QB Matt Flynn will start the team's preseason opener against Tennessee. instagr.am/p/OCh9V7tuwS/— Seattle Seahawks (@Seahawks) August 7, 2012
We've learned Matt Flynn is out in front in the QB competition. At least he is for those of us reading between the lines.
Flynn will be the starter when the Seahawks open the preseason on Saturday against the Titans.
Carroll went on to say Flynn will take first-team reps at practice as well this week, and is expected to play the entire first half.
Rookie Russell Wilson could play the entire second half. We may see Josh Portis.
Coach Carroll also said that the staff knows what they have in Tarvaris Jackson. They know what he can do.
What does this all mean?
Well, in my opinion it means Flynn is out in front. No big surprise there. You don't pay a guy $19m and have him be your backup, do you?
We've also learned from Seahawks.com twitter today that Terrell Owens will wear #10 for the Hawks.
