Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll isn’t ready to give up on rookie quarterback Russell Wilson after a 2-2 start. “We’re going with Russell right now,” Carroll said. “He’s working his tail off to get it right, and where all of the focus goes to the quarterback position, there’s a lot of guys who figure into what’s going on, and he’s one of them. So we’re just trying to get better.” Carroll says that Flynn isn’t ready to step in anyway because he’s not completely healthy from the preseason. “We have a little bit of a problem with Matt” Carroll said, when asked about the quarterback situation, per The News Tribune. “Matt’s still not full speed, and anybody that thinks, ‘OK, let’s go with the other guy,’ well, he can’t practice yet. He can go in and throw it and make it through a game. He can throw it. He throws 15 throws a day, a couple days a week. And so that’s not really enough to get him ready to go in a game plan.” I don’t believe a 2-2 start to the season is a reason to bench Wilson.  I believe he can only get batter as the season moves along.

Despite the continued struggles of the Seattle Seahawks offense and the worst passing game in the NFL, Pete Carroll is not ready to make a switch from rookie Russell Wilson at quarterback.

Seattle Seahawks: Week 5 NFL Power Rankings (#17)

Last week: 17 (+0) As they always do, the Seahawks fell flat on the road last week. Now there are calls for Russell Wilson’s job after his 3 pick performance (none of which were ruled touchdowns strangely) just a few weeks after he was the media darling who “beat the odds.” They’ve got a great defense and they’re great at home, but their offense isn’t very good and they...
