12th Man Rising:
This question has come up on twitter a few times, and it always seems to spark an interesting discussion. Whitehurst is certainly done in Seattle, but will another team give him a shot. What really are the odds that Whitehurst is on an NFL roster for week 1 in 2012?
Remember, despite what you might think of him, Whitehurst has all the physical tools. He’s a big QB with a big arm. He mobile. He throws a good looking deep ball. What’s not to love, right?
The problem with him has always been that the game never slows down for him. He looks lost. He’s slow on making decisions and is easily fooled by the defense. At times he looks like he moving, and thinking, in slow motion while everyone else is at full speed.
Is he good enough to be a backup QB? Sure, as long as your starter doesn’t get hurt for an extended period. Whitehurst stepped in in week 17 of 2010 and played decently, and he led the Seahawks to that come from behind victory drive against the Giants this year. He also looked aw...

"Seahawks? PFFT. Why the hell did you guys sign Tarvaris?" That was what a TSA agent said to me before I boarded my flight west for that Seahawks v Cardinals game last September. Few of Seattle's offseason moves were more derided than the twin decisions to let Matt Hasselbeck walk and replace him with ex-Vikings QB Tarvaris Jackson. I'll admit that at that moment...
Seahawks insider Brandon Choate is on the Matt Flynn rollercoaster today. He brings us his top 5 reasons why the Seattle Seahawks should sign Flynn, citing his NFL experience and low cost with not having to give up draft picks to get him. Get it done Pete Carroll and John Schneider, and do it now. Tarvaris Jackson and Charlie Whitehurst are not the answers in Seatown!

What’s amazing about the 1204 yards that Lynch finished with is that after 7 games (6 games played, and 1 he missed due to a back injury), Lynch had just 263 yards...
