Tarvaris Jackson, who was Seattle's starting quarterback last season, will not play in the Seahawks' second preseason game on Saturday against Denver, but coach Pete Carroll told reporters on Tuesday that Jackson is still in the competition to be the Seahawks' regular-season starter. Carroll said Tuesday he will follow the same plan as in the first preseason game, which means Matt Flynn will start and play the first half, and Russell Wilson will play the second half. Jackson did not play in the first preseason game against Tennessee and is not scheduled to play against the Broncos either.

Seattle Seahawks Will Trade Tarvaris Jackson, But Will Any Team Want Him?

The Seattle Seahawks are likely looking to trade quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, as Matt Flynn is cementing himself as the team’s starter, and while Russell Wilson appears more than capable of handling the back up role.

Final Public Practice – Observations

Notable Points Judging from this practice alone, Matt Flynn is the clear-cut favorite to start in week 1 of the regular season.

But even after signing troubled superstars Braylon Edwards and Terrell Owens this offseason, the Seahawks head coach seems opposed to any such union with recently released wideout Chad Johnson.

NEW SERIES: NFC West – 2012 Fantasy Football Preview

The 49ers look to be a team on the verge of greatness with hard-nosed Jim Harbaugh as head coach, and Pete Carroll seems to be slowly building a team that can threaten for the playoffs in Seattle.

Matt Flynn to get 2nd straight start

Even though Pete Carroll insists the competition is ongoing, it is clear Matt Flynn is the leading contender to be the Seattle Seahawks' starting quarterback when the season begins.

Seattle Seahawks: Super Bowl Sleeper

Wow, check out that awesome alliteration in that title! Woo hoo, I'm pretty pumped about that. All right, now let's talk about some football. Eh, I know, not as exciting as talking about the alliteration in the title, but we have to get through it.
