Seahawks Vs. Broncos: Matt Flynn To Start Again, Russell Wilson Gets 2nd Half

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll announced Tuesday that once again, Matt Flynn will get the start this weekend in Seattle's game against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. Flynn started last week against the Titans and went 11 for 13 for 79 yards with an interception and played the entire first half; Russell Wilson started and played the entire 2nd half and went 12 for 16 with 124 yards, a touchdown and an interception, and ran for another score. Because Wilson impressed, there has been some speculation that the Seahawks would switch things up and start the rookie out of Wisconsin this week, but it looks like Carroll and the Seahawks will stick with this Flynn-then-Wilson system for the time being.

Pete Carroll has said multiple times during this QB competition that the coaching staff has a very detailed and specific plan in place on running this three-way competition between Flynn, Wilson, and Tarvaris Jackson, who also apparently has not been ruled out. Whether the announcement of a starter will come following the game this weekend remains to be seen, but at the moment it looks like Flynn is the front-runner.
