My 12th Man Brethren... Please help me settle a $ bet.

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

Who would you rather have as the Seahawks' starting QB right now?

Russell Wilson

96%
Matt Flynn

4%
 
Total votes : 138

  • Please... Just bare with me.

    This is NOT a Russell Wilson/Matt Flynn debate. I made a bet with another Seahawks fan and I just need you to vote. There doesn't need to be a dialogue, just a one word answer.

    This question and options are self-explanatory.

    Thanks to all who participate... I'll give the particulars after the vote is over! I need 100 replies.

  • I think the bet must be that you can actually get people to vote for Matt Flynn. Some sort of over-under. My guess is 10% will vote for Flynn just to be a pain ih your ass. In fact.....

    *edit* I changed my vote back to RW. Wouldn't want you to lose $20 on my account.

  • Thanks to all who have voted so far, but I do need to ask to take this seriously... Please only vote if you're a Seahawks fan and don't guess where this is going. Please vote for your real choice as a Seahawks fan... I got money riding on a number for RW3 and that's all I can say at this point, and it's a very high number of votes that I need for him...

  • Damn, I better cancel the bet. It's a bit tainted right now and that's no one's fault, but this is too tough to do on a message board.

    I have a couple buddies at work who want RW3 benched in favor of Flynn because he is a "stupid rookie who makes stupid mistakes."

    So I flexed and offered up a bet. I bet that 95 percent of Hawk fans would rather have RW3 under center than Flynn, and the bet amount was $20. But I've already had a Niner fan vote here and someone else who voted for Flynn just because. It's all good, it just won't work.

    It does baffle me that I actually respected these clowns who I know who want Flynn to start. Laughable...

    So then you would vote for Alex Smith over Kaepernick? To me they are very similar scenarios (though SMith is alot mroe of a known commodity than Flynn.). Wilson and Kaepernick have much higher ceilings than Flynn and Smith, but The 2 vets have the experience factor going for them. They are efficient but not really game changers.

    Wilson is much more dynamic than Flynn, to me there's no question as to who the starter should be.

    No he wants Flynn in there because Wilson is THAT DUDE! They scurred!!!!!

  • We really don't know the answer to this, since Flynn hasn't played. Hard to imagine him being as dynamic, poised, and unique as Wilson though.

    I hope Flynn gets a chance somewhere else to start. So it's not awkward, I really hope its an AFC team or at a minimum he doesn't go to AZ.

    Basically that. Although with our defense I'm not "scurred." But Wilson brings a ton more to the table than Flynn, and he will only get better.

  • I was a Flynn guy when the battle for the starting job was going on. But at this point RW has proven to be a stellar student of the game with all the physical skills to do the job. Sure he is a rookie and makes rookie mistakes and that mistake in the Miami game was an example. But he makes so few rookie mistakes and he does not repeat those same mistakes. Allowing him to finish out the season will only solidify the process which is a good thing for the future of this team.

    Yeah, I don't get it. I've never gone to a 49ers board or website of any kind at any time for any reason. I don't find the idea that appealing.

  • With ninnir fans its their worry that everyone else thinks they have the best ever all the time.

    The fact they mostly only show up when they are winning while disappearing for the 10 years they were losers is typical of Bay Area residents.

    They have to brag even if the only thing they have to brag about are SB wins from when most of them were to young to drive cars.
