    Seahawks planning to start Whitehurst against Rams

    By TIM BOOTH, AP Sports Writer 48 minutes ago

    RENTON, Wash. (AP)—Charlie Whitehurst(notes) is expected to be Seattle’s starting quarterback on Sunday when the Seahawks play the St. Louis Rams for the NFC West title.

    Pete Carroll said Monday the Seahawks will plan on Whitehurst being their starter Sunday night. But he wasn’t ready to rule out Matt Hasselbeck(notes) after he left Sunday’s 38-15 loss to Tampa Bay after running for a 1-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Hasselbeck suffered a strain to his lower back/hip/gluteal area that did not allow him to return.

    Hasselbeck underwent an MRI and additional tests Monday morning and the results were positive enough that Carroll remained somewhat optimistic.

    “It’s something (that) it may be manageable. It may be,” Carroll said. “The MRI results were not such where he doesn’t have a chance. They were very hopeful that he has an opportunity to get back, but we won’t know for days. So it’s kind of a difficult situation for us because we don’t know and we’re not sure what is going to happen until we find out the news probably by Saturday, or it may go all the way to game time.”

    After Sunday’s loss, Hasselbeck said the injury first popped up in Week 3 against San Diego and has been a slight bother a few other times during the season, but nothing like Sunday. Hasselbeck went to the ground after scoring and walked off the field.

    If he can’t go, Whitehurst would be making his second career start, with Seattle going for its first division title since 2007.

    “I want to make sure as we proceed through the week and know what we’re doing,” Carroll said. “If Matt can play a factor in that, we’ll figure it out when the time comes.”

    Offensive tackle Russell Okung(notes) also aggravated a left ankle injury Sunday, but did not miss a play. Carroll did not indicate whether Okung will miss any time. Wide receiver Brandon Stokley(notes) also suffered a concussion, but the Seahawks won’t know about his availability until later in the week.

    Whatever!

    We beat the Hasselbeck lead Seahawks earlier this season. (20-3)


    I could care less who they put under center. We just need to go out and play our game and everything will take care of itself.

    GO RAMS!

    We are a far superior team in all aspects of the game. As long as we limit the turnovers and penalties, the Rams should be hosting a playoff game.

    But that's why they play the game!

    Is it me, or does it seem like Pete Carroll is being a bit too coy about Hass' status? My read on this is that Hass is out, but Petey's trying to make the Rams prepare for two QBs.

    Frankly, Petey... I don't think its going to make a difference.

    I don't believe it - no coach would ever try to disguise which QB will start against the Rams.

    Re: Update matt hasselbeck

    I think you nailed it, Av. ESPN and NFL.com are reporting that Whitehurst will start, but Pete "Lewis" Carroll seems to be trying to bait us with a "Wonderland" tale about how it could come all the way to a gametime decision.

    You know what? I hope it comes to that, because then you're going to be all crazed about who gets what reps and what gameplan YOU install, because your pretty crappy trade in Whitehurst certainly can't run the same plan as Hasselbeck, and who knows at this point which one of them would give you the best chance to win. So play your games, Pete, I don't think we care whose blood we spill on Quest's turf...
    I believe!

    Funny thing is... if Whitehurt starts, the most experienced QB on the field will be... SAM BRADFORD!!!

    Who woulda thunk it!
