It looks like Charlie Whitehurst bandwagon has been recovered from the bottom of Lake Erie.
Pete Carroll said on KIRO Friday that his starting quarterback will be a gametime decision, but he made it sound pretty clear that Charlie Whitehurst will get the call. They are preparing Whitehurst to start.
Carroll noted that Whitehurst has never been able to start two games in a row, and that he’s getting prepared to start. Whitehurst has received most of the reps in practice this week.
Whitehurst will try to recapture the feeling that he had during his last home start, which came in Week 17 last year against the Rams to help Seattle win the NFC West.
It looks like running back Marshawn Lynch will be able to return to the lineup for Seattle.
