Default Seahawks name Wilson as their starting QB

Quote:

The Russell Wilson Era in Seattle is officially underway.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll announced Sunday night that Wilson will start against the Raiders in the preseason finale and will start again in Week One against the Cardinals. The news was hardly unexpected after Wilson got the start against Kansas City and played like the starting quarterback that the Seahawks have been looking for all summer, but it is still surprising since the third-round pick was seen as the third choice in the competition with Matt Flynn and Tarvaris Jackson.

Flynn got $10 million in guaranteed money as a free agent this offseason and Jackson was the incumbent starter, but Wilson wound up with the job. On a conference call, Carroll said it was because he earned the job with his play and his ability to fix things on the fly.

“This is an extraordinary kid. He just kept knocking us out with what he brought,” Caroll said, via the team. “I’ve watched our team respond to him and they’ve taken to his leadership style.”

Jackson’s trade to the Bills still isn’t official, but Carroll said that the team expects it to go through. Flynn will remain as the No. 2, the same job he held behind Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.

Yea but this kid is a third-round pic and he's starting as a rookie in his teams season opener. The only other QB in that group who isn't a first rounder is Dalton, and he was a very high second-rounder who had a big resume coming out of TCU.
I saw this kid in the Senior Bowl like 6 months ago and he's like < 5'11" and trust me nobody speculated he'd be a starter his first year in the pros. Actually most had him as a career backup - too short you know.
I give Carrol high marks for sticking his neck out after the investment on the FA QB, but we'll see how his judgement plays out here ?

Russell Wilson is going to be a hell of a player. I'd be excited if I were a Seachicken fan.

Russell Wilson is looking like a steal. He's still got to do it in the regular season but from what I've seen in the pre-season, this kid could be special.

I'm in this camp as well. I was really impressed when I watched the Hawks PS game. Don't remember who they were playing but Wilson just made play after play and appeared very comfortable. Didn't see any rook jitters, duck-n-run or any of the usual rookie stuff. I think the Hawks may have indeed pulled a caper on draft day.

Granted, it's the PS but sometime you can just tell who's got it and who ain't. I think Russell Wilson has *it*.

That said, yeah, he's too short.

I see quite a few people dogging their new uniforms but I think they look pretty good after watching them a whole game.

So much for the hype of Matt Flynn. I never understood all of that hype that Flynn got last season all because of hi putting up a ton of points against a terrible Lions defense.

He looks like Donovan McNabb out there. Not real fast, but makes quick cuts and navigates through traffic well.

Fans crown guys too early. Let's see him in a few full-length reg season games.

Every few years you get a QB hungry team to reach for a one game wonder like Scott Johnson or Kevin Kolb. Teams without a marquee QB will take chances that they won't at other positions when it comes to QB's. Let's welcome Matt Flynn to the club.
