    Russell Wilson will be the Seahawks' starting quarterback.

    Coach Pete Carroll made that announcement in a conference call with Seattle reporters on Sunday evening.

    "He's earned this job," Carroll said. "It was a legitimate competition as we said from the beginning and with the opportunity he's taken advantage of, he deserves to start."

    Wilson was chosen in the third round by Seattle. He was part of a three-way competition for the starting job. Matt Flynn will be the backup after being signed in the offseason as a free agent from Green Bay.

    Unless people drafted before the start of TC, there is no excuse for drafting Flynn to be a starting QB in fantasy. None.

    I figured Flynn would be the starter for atleast half the season before Wilson took over.

    I thought the Seahawks sounded like they were going to give him the starting nod with everything they've said in interviews during TC...I didn't think they'd actually do it though. They LOVE Wilson and weren't shy about showing it...but I still thought they'd go Flynn...

    Well at least Flynn can say he's being paid handsomely to live in Seattle for a year

    I love that about Carroll and Schneider. Doesn't matter who you are, how much you make, or what your name is, you're either riding the pine or getting fired if you don't fit their scheme or someone is playing better than you.
