One good start apparently deserves another, as Matt Flynn will get his second start of the preseason when the Seahawks plays the Broncos in Denver on Saturday night.
That was the word from coach Pete Carroll after today’s practice, although incumbent starter Tarvaris Jackson worked as the No. 1 QB in practice and Carroll admitted he thought about going with rookie Russell Wilson as the starter this week.
“This is what the plan was all along, if it worked out and it has,” Carroll said. “The fact that both guys played well just keeps us in that mode that we’ve got to see a little more and learn a little bit more – see if they can carry it over to a really good defense at Denver, and see how it goes.”
Flynn completed 11 of 13 passes for 71 yards in the first half of the preseason opener against the Titans on Saturday night, while Wilson passed for one touchdown and ran for another in a second-half performance that saw him complete 12 of 16 passes for 124 yards.
The coaches used today’s session as an extra practice and will begin preparing for the Broncos – with Flynn as the starter – tomorrow.
