HC Mike Munchak, QBs Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker have downplayed the significance of who’s starting Saturday and said the competition is expected to continue after the game.
“Like I said yesterday, it wasn’t a big decision,” Munchak said. “I think Matt deserves the start. If it means anything, it’s his hometown and where he’s played. He was a starter last year, so I think he should be the first one out of the box with the ball in his hand. Like I said, they’re both going to play the same, just like other positions, but that was kind of an easy thought going in that we’d let Matt start and go with Jake second.”
