12th man vote: QB for game 5? (Bumped)

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13

Who should be our QB next week vs the Panthers?

100% stick with Wilson. We're still 2-2 with him at the helm.

I'm torn, but this is as much about WR as QB. Give the kid another start.

Get Flynn in there now. Don't waste any more time with a rookie not delivering

  • The points for sticking with Wilson are basically:

    rookie growing pains; we'll be taking our lumps this season - At the expense of a great defense and running game, at the expense of a winning season if this trend continues? Why even start a rookie if we're not putting our team in the best position to succeed this year? If we're playing for next year, I guess it doesn't really matter who starts.

    receivers are not getting open - Yes they are. go watch the tape. Wilson bailing from the pocket too soon, and he is just not hitting them

    Flynn is more sack prone - Pure conjecture at this point. Won't know until he plays regular games behind our line, in our offense.

    Flynn is not a team player - Based on what he might look like on the sidelines? According to the coaches he lit it up as a scout QB for Rodgers, and gave our defense a lot information to work with. We can give some credit to Flynn for that 9 sack performance

    Flynn looks too pouty - not even going to counterpoint this ridiculous argument

    Coaches picked Wilson over Flynn for a reason - Coaches can make mistakes too; it's a matter of if they can learn from their mistakes and be rational enough (and not emotional like us fans) to do what is best for the team

    We are still 2-2 with Wilson - And we could be 4-0... the passing game was still bad in those 2 wins. Defense/special teams will not bail us out forever.

    The coaches are handicapping Wilson and limiting the play book - Then Wilson is still the problem. They are not letting him loose for a reason. Maybe he's turned the ball over too much in practice? Maybe he's having trouble reading defenses. Maybe their trying to make him into something he's not?

    4 games is not enough sample size to determine if this offense can get it going with Wilson under center - We have a great running game and are still not getting it done. We can give Wilson a couple more games, but how long can we afford before this becomes another "developmental" season?

    Whether you thought Wilson would lead us to the Superbowl, or whether you thought he'd have a lot of rookie mistakes, it became a developmental year as soon as he was named the starter.

    If Carroll really believes in Always Compete / Win Forever, then he has some serious evaluation to do, and determine if he's putting this team in the best position to win this year. If by starting a rookie, we are still a year or two away, then I guess it doesn't matter but I would hate to see us squander our great defense and running game when I think we are talented enough to make some noise THIS year.

  • Thought this thread might need a bump to add a little mid-season perspective to things. My how far we've come!

  • Man, I knew this thread was trouble when it was first started. I am sooooooooo glad I didn't jump in it.
