To the Seahawks credit, they're making every attempt to find the right guy to lead their team. Too often we see teams stick with a starter long after it's apparent to everyone outside of that locker room that the backup is the guy that should be starting on gameday. Still, teams need one starting quarterback, not three, and quarterback controversies often follow on the heels of fierce open competitions.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has a chance to be the number one guy.

SEATTLE- Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is understandably fighting to figure out who his guy his going to be. When I say his guy think of what Peyton Manning meant to Tony Dungy.

In the end of April we were told by GM John Schneider that Seahawks' first-round pick in the 2011 NFL draft, T James Carpenter would likely not be ready for 2012 training camp.

Draft Grades: Seattle Seahawks

For the second consecutive year, the Seattle Seahawks whiffed in the 1st round and demonstrated a complete lack of understanding as to how to effectively use the draft to rebuild a franchise. While the Seahawks have some talent, they’re headed in the wrong direction. I thought the selection of James Carpenter was bad last year, but Bruce Irvin may be worse. Not only was Irvin a...
