For those pondering on an order of operations for the Seattle Seahawks quarterbacks for the first preseason contest against the Tennessee Titans, Pete Carroll has revealed his hand.

It starts with Matt Flynn, who is no surprise to start, particularly after that massive contract he signed with Seattle this offseason. But the big surprise is who might be his backup: The rookie from Wisconsin, Russell Wilson.

There's no doubt Wilson had a good camp this offseason in the lead-up to the regular season. But the possibility that Wilson might very well have passed up Jackson on the depth chart this early cannot be a good sign for Tarvaris's hopes of cracking the Seahawks rotation down the line. Jackson had a decent season as the starter last year, so the possibility of a demotion to second or (worse) third-string duties would be hard to swallow.

For those who are wondering, Terrell Owens will not be playing.
