If Russell Wilson struggles on third downs, Matt Flynn could get a shot

The Seahawks aren’t happy with the performance of the team’s offense on third down.  And if the struggles continue on Sunday, it could result in quarterback Russell Wilson getting the hook.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that, if Wilson continues to have trouble converting third downs, Matt Flynn could get an opportunity.

Coach Pete Carroll has said that Flynn isn’t ready to be the starter because an elbow problem would keep him from taking the first-team reps in practice.  But he could be able to play the role of reliever, if Wilson creates a need for relief.
