The Tacoma News Tribune - [Full Article]

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told reporters on Monday that despite Russell Wilson’s poor performance against the St. Louis Rams over the weekend, the rookie remains his team’s starting quarterback.

“We’re going with Russell right now,” Carroll said. “He’s working his tail off to get it right, and where all of the focus goes to the quarterback position, there’s a lot of guys who figure into what’s going on, and he’s one of them. So we’re just trying to get better.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Carroll said Monday that Matt Flynn is still nursing a sore elbow, so that could be part of the season there won't be a switch. The Seahawks are at Carolina in Week 5 and Wilson likely won't be much better than a mid-QB2 option.
