well I guess the coaches think Tarvaris is in mid season form too
Carroll said that the Seahawks’ coaching staff doesn’t need to see last year’s starter, Tarvaris Jackson, because they already know what he can do.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll announced today that Flynn will be the starter when the Seahawks open the preseason on Saturday against the Titans.

Jackson demoted to third unit
Pete Carroll told reporters today after practice that he plans on making a shift in the quarterback competition, with Matt Flynn starting against Tennessee and playing the entire first half, while Russell Wilson will start and play the entire second half.]
fact that he already has a good grasp of the offense and the coaching staff had a chance to evaluate him all of last year means that the team can cut down on Jackson’s reps

I look at the Seattle/Flynn quandary much the same way as I look at the Arizona/Kolb fiasco. Neither seems to be the type of QB the team needs to run their offense.
One thing to think on though, with the moves of signing TO and Braylon, is that a sign that the Seahawks might be tweaking their vertical offense to a more traditional "dink/dunk" attack that Flynn's arm seems to be better suited for?
Sure must have been an eye opener when he started throwing it deep in OTA's and everything was picked off because it was a floater.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

A few weeks ago I posted an article (on here I think) that listed QB by percentage on who went deep. TJ was right up there on that list. Not surprising since the Seahawks run a "Air Coryell" vertical version.
With the likes of Edwards and TO, I don't think they will help the team (QB) stay atop a list like that. Again, assumption on my part, because Flynn's arm is so weak, they are bringing in a few candidates who are more along the lines of short to intermediate possession guys vice someone who can stretch it a bit.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Edwards and TO might be battling for one roster spot with the other getting cut before the season.
