Backup quarterback Matt Flynn isn't injured per se, but the team has been cautious about his workload and while he is available and ready to play. It's understandable if you are confused after some conflicting reports, but coach Pete Carroll was asked a series of questions about both quarterbacks in an attempt to flesh out the situation under center for Seattle.
Flynn's workload has been monitored after he suffered from a sore elbow back in August, which prevented him from playing in the team's third exhibition game.
"Matt hasn't had a lot of work," Carroll said. "We've hoped that it would help the elbow situation. He has never thrown a lot in any of the practices. He's just, he's done the things we've asked him to do. We've counted on him to play in every game. We haven't had a third quarterback on the roster because Matt can play, but we have had a pitch count for him in a sense and made sure that we didn't work him past where we thought it was the right way to do it."
Is Flynn's status a determining factor in whether Carroll could even consider making a change at quarterback?
Carroll said: " No, Matt's ready to play. Matt's ready to play. We just don't know what's going to happen when he gets a lot of work. He might be all right, we don't know that, but we have not taken him there yet. But no, he's ready to play in every game and he's ready to go in the very next play if we need him. So the competition goes on in my mind as it does in every position on our football team. Our guys continue to compete, but he has not had the opportunity because we give the starter all the reps, and with a young guy, first time, we're giving him every single snap we can. That's how this has gone throughout." Source: Seattle Times

The Seattle Seahawks have had a hard time moving the football on the field and despite all the troubles head coach Pete Carroll said he is sticking with his rookie quarterback.
"We're going with Russell right now," Carroll told The News Tribune. "He's working his tail off to get it right, and where all of the focus goes to the quarterback position, there&...
Despite Seattle's offensive struggles in its first four games, the Seahawks are sticking with
rookie Russell Wilson as their starting quarterback. Coach Pete Carroll told The News Tribune of Tacoma, Wash., that Matt Flynn, the team's big
offseason acquisition, wasn't ready to play because of an elbow injury that has limited him in
practice. But Carroll later backtracked...
Russell Wilson had a rough go of it in Seattle’s 19-13 Week 4 loss to the Rams, completing 17-of-25 passes for just 160 yards, zero touchdowns and three interceptions. Wilson was under constant pressure, Wilson was routinely flushed from the pocket, but only one of his three interceptions was his fault. Doug Baldwin let the ball get ripped out of his hands late in the second...
The Seahawks Peck And Claw Back From An NFL Disgrace
If there's a common truth for sports fans to embrace, it is this:
THE SEATTLE SEAHAWKS ARE DUE.
Don't mistake Golden Tate catching the Green Bay Packer who caught the ball as any sort of payback. That's not even a decent start, not when titles come into play.
With Super Bowl championships hanging in the balance...
Seattle’s struggling offense
Big 4th Down call. Turning point for Seattle’s muted 2nd half performance.
Watch for my breakdown of Seattle’s offensive performance against the NFC West worst St. Louis Rams. I will look for the seminal play that epitomizes the struggles of Seattle’s offense. I’m not so impetuous as to abandon all hope in the current system. However, some...
According to the Seahawks website, offensive tackle Allen Barbre has been released. Barbre completed his four-game suspension for violation of the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs, and has been released rather than added to the 53-man roster.
Barbrie was signed by the Seahawks in 2011 after he was released by the Green Bay Packers. Barbre was originally drafted by...

The better team won
I should re-phrase that, the team that played better on Sunday won. Hats off to the St. Louis Rams for the big divisional win. The Rams coaching staff put together a great game plan that put the team in position to win.
The players executed the plan and that is why they won. On the other side of the field, the Seattle Seahawks entered the Edward Jones Dome...
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson struggled against the Rams on the road throwing 3 interceptions. So it was natural that the question would come up about whether the Seahawks might consider turning to their big free-agent acquisition, Matt Flynn.

Playing to their level
The Seattle Seahawks went into St Louis on Sunday looking to make a name for themselves in the NFC West. After starting off the year with a heartbreaking loss at division rival Arizona, the Seahawks couldn’t afford to lose their second division game of the year.
Leave it to the Seahawks, though, and they’ll surprise you in many ways. After looking stellar...
Amid the influx of horror stories we have heard about replacement officials and how awful they were for the game of football, there is at least one story that sticks out from all the rest. By blowing one of the biggest calls in NFL history and essentially handing the Seahawks a win over the Packers last week, the NFL’s replacement refs changed the lives of Branford, Ontario’s...

The Seahawks offense appeared to make a statement today, finally getting a score drive together in the first series of the opening half. Russell Wilson spread the ball around, hooking up with both wide receivers Sydney Rice and Golden...
The NFL’s replacement referees made a call last night that gave the Seattle Seahawks a win over the Green Bay Packers, once again stirring up controversy over the NFL lockout and drawing attention to the consequences… a lack of competent referees.

According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports via NFL.com, replay official Howard Slavin and side judge Lance Easley, a replacement official, received numerous death threats following last Monday night’s debacle in Seattle between the Seahawks and Packers.
Glazer said that NFL security was forced to get involved because of how bad the situation got.
I find it very sad and disturbing...
