Poll: Did Pete Carroll make the right call selecting Russell Wilson as his starting quarterback?
It was a wild Sunday of Seahawks news. And it could prove to be a memorable day for both the 2012 season and the tenure of Pete Carroll as the Seahawks coach.
Most notably, Carroll named rookie Russell Wilson his Week 1 starting quarterback, ending a much-scrutinized quarterback competition, at least for now. The Seahawks also dumped wide receiver Terrell Owens, whose Hall of Fame-worthy NFL career is probably over, in their first round of cuts. Respected veteran and glue guy Roy Lewis was also "waived/injured" as the Seahawks worked to trim their roster from 90 to 75. And they agreed to trade quarterback Tarvaris Jackson to Buffalo, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com and the NFL Network.
So, I figured we'd do a simple Brewery poll here to get your take on the most important news.
Was Carroll right in selecting Wilson as his quarterback?
Vote and drop a line in the comments section. I'd love to hear what you think.
I have a million thoughts about what happened today, and I'll offer some of those in the morning.
You can also vote in the Times sports poll of the day, which asked your opinion about the cuts and Jackson trade, but it was posted BEFORE the news about Wilson became official.
