Want to find out who starts at quarterback for the Seahawks in their winner-take-NFC West battle with the Rams on Sunday night?
You better tune in to NBC, because that’s the only way you’re finding out. After a week spent battling a hip injury, Matt Hasselbeck is active for the Seahawks. Reports from those at Qwest Field all say that the veteran signal caller looked good enough to start during pre-game warmups, but there’s no absolute word at this point in time. Charlie Whitehurst worked as the starter during practice for most of the week.
The guess here is that Hasselbeck is starting the game. If Pete Carroll didn’t make a move after his 10 interceptions in four weeks, he isn’t going to bench Hasselbeck for a game that can get his team into the playoffs.
J.P. Losman is listed as the third quarterback for Seattle. The rest of the Seahawks inactives are wide receiver Brandon Stokely, linebacker Joe Pawelek, guard Paul Fanaika, tackle Breno Giacomini, tackle Will Robinson, tackle Stacy Andrews and defensive tackle Amon Gordon.
The Rams get tight end Michael Hoomanawanui back after missing four games with a sprained ankle. Their inactives are safety Michael Lewis, cornerback Justin King, linebacker David Nixon, linebacker Curtis Johnson, guard John Greco, tight end Derek Schouman, defensive end Jermelle Cudjo and wide receiver Mardy Gilyard.
