Description: Seahawks GM John Schneider insists QB Charlie Whitehurst will be given an opportunity to win a starting job in training camp.
SOURCE: SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER
Insight: Schneider credits Whitehurst for getting the Seahawks to the playoffs by beating the Rams in Week Seventeen, but his 192 passing yards and a score off of 36 attempts wasn't exactly spectacular. Rumors have been swirling that the team will use their first-overall pick on a quarterback and/or re-sign Matt Hasselbeck. If Whitehurst does somehow start Week One, he will be one of the weakest starters in the league.

Description: After Seahawks QB Charlie Whitehurst's last two preseason games, there is some question on whether or not he will be QB Matt Hasselbeck's "heir apparent."
SOURCE: SEATTLE TIMES
Insight: Whitehurst looked strong in the first game (2TDs/1Int), but managed just one score and three interceptions in the last two. Dynasty owners flocked to get Whitehurst as soon as he was traded from San Diego, but we have our doubts on whether he can be a full-time starter. The plot will thicken if the Seahawks express interest in Matt Leinart.
