Seattle Times - [Full Article]

Tarvaris Jackson remains the Seahawks starting QB, but backup Charlie Whitehurst could be catching up.

"...Charlie is having an excellent camp...," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said.

Not so excellent that Carroll is considering a change in the depth chart. Tarvaris Jackson remains the starter, his familiarity with Seattle's offense under new coordinator Darrell Bevell his trump card.

Whitehurst completed 14 of the 20 passes he attempted in two quarters vs. San Diego. And he got better as the game progressed, growing more comfortable throwing downfield. Of his five completions in the second quarter, none was for more than 7 yards. In the third quarter, he was 9-for-11 passing, with six of those passes gaining more than 8 yards.
