According to ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter, the starting quarterback job for the Seattle Seahawks belongs to Russell Wilson, and essentially is his to lose.
Per Senior NFL Editor at Rotoworld Evan Silva via Twitter:

#Seahawks QB job is "out of (Matt Flynn's) hands" at this pt. Wilson will start if he plays well Friday.
Even though Matt Flynn has been decent, Wilson has simply been electric, getting the attention of the entire team including general manager John Schneider:
Schneider: "This is not about Matt Flynn right now. This is about Russell Wilson forcing the issue. He's been dynamic."— Adam Schein (@AdamSchein) August 22, 2012
If Wilson struggles on Friday, it could open the door again for Flynn. But if he doesn't, Flynn's chances seem to be slim to none at being the starter.
