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.
Any decision to perhaps go to backup Matt Flynn is also complicated by the Seahawks being unsure whether a sore elbow that limited Flynn at the end of the preseason would be fully able to handle the starter's workload.
Carroll said Monday that Wilson remains the Seahawks' best option despite throwing three interceptions in Sunday's 19-13 loss in St. Louis. Seattle's passing offense is last in the league with just 523 net yards in four games. Wilson is completing 60 percent of his passes, but the big chunks of yardage are missing.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
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...
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...
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&...
Coach Pete Carroll confirmed that he’s sticking with Russell Wilson for now. Backup Matt Flynn says he’s ready to play through some elbow tendonitis, but Carroll is holding firm with the rookie. “We’re going with Russell right now,” he said. “He’s working his tail off to get it right.” Through four games, Wilson is averaging just 148.5 passing yards and has tossed...
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...
Silence of the lambs
With everything going right in the Seahawks world going into Sunday’s divisional matchup with St. Louis, the Hawks sure picked a bad time to let their true colors show.
Now the world can really see that the win the previous week was a fluke, and we are the the laughing stock of the NFL community.
Sure, there are worse teams that us, but to ride high with...
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...
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...
