According to Dan Arkush of ProFootballWeekly.com, the Seatlte Seahawks are still concerned about the Matt Flynn’s elbow. One of the reasons it wouldn’t make sense to bench Russell Wilson in favor of Flynn if the Seahawks don’t improve, is that no one knows how his elbow will hold up. “The thing is, they’re giving Wilson the great majority of reps in practice, because they feel he just really needs them,” one team insider said, per Arkush. “Matt can make all the plays and all the throws, but if he suddenly had to step it up at an accelerated pace, there are some concerns about how the elbow might hold up.”

Is Matt Flynn the NFL’s Best Con Artist?

In 2008 the Green Bay Packers selected Matt Flynn in the 7th round with the 209th overall pick.

Brohm had advantages in size, arm strength, and speed, yet Flynn managed to beat out his fellow rookie for the title of backup quarterback.Flynn...

Believe In Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson

Settle down people, there is no reason to sit Russell Wilson. He’s a rookie quarterback. He will have bad games. It is going to happen and there is nothing that can be done about it. He needs time to adjust to the league, and it could take all year before we see what he can really be. Besides, if you sit him down, whom are you turning to? Matt Flynn? Russell has twice as many NFL...

Warren Moon says Pete Carroll needs to stop having Russell Wilson play like a robot

How will the Seahawks have changed by week 17

What to watch for? Seahawks second 4 game stretch of the season

Five things to watch Before the season started, I would have been more than happy with a 2-2 record. Of course, I would have assumed the Seattle Seahawks beat the Cardinals and the Rams. Instead, Seattle lost those both of those games, but they did defeat the Cowboys and the Packers, at home. No matter how you slice it, the Seahawks have a record of .500, and last place in the NFC...

Seattle vs. Carolina Insight / Analysis / preview

SEAHAWKS vs. PANTHERS (Oct 7 4:05 PM ET) The Seahawks lost their last game and the main reason was that Russell Wilson had his first really bad game throwing 3 picks in a loss to the Rams. Seattle played pretty good D, especially against the run, and Marshawn Lynch rushed for 118 yards with 1 TD and he averaged a legit 5.9 yards per carry. That is not good for a Panthers’ run...

NFL First Quarter Report Card: Seattle Seahawks

I will try to ignore the controversy that took place 2 weeks ago, but I admit it will be hard to avoid. At 2-2 the Seattle Seahawks have been on quite a roller coaster. A big win vs. the Dallas Cowboys showed how strong this team can be at times, while losses against the Cardinals and Rams also frustrated Seahawks fans. When you throw in some luck, and some great defense it has...

What I’m watching for Sunday in the Seahawks vs. Panthers matchup

Goodbye Super-Cam, Hello Clark Kent. This season has been quite the roller coaster ride for Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. Over the first four weeks of the season, Newton’s QBR has been 34.5, 88.3, 15.6, and 68.7. With 50 being the average in the QBR rating system, you can see how Cam’s numbers fluctuated week by week.
