Did Whitehurst earn shot to start?

Jim Moore of ESPN 710 Seattle continues to wave the pom-poms for Charlie Whitehurst, saying after Saturday’s performance that the backup quarterback deserves a shot to play with the starters at Denver.


“If you ask me, I’m guessing that Whitehurst will still be more effective than Jackson when he goes against first-stringers. I say that because Whitehurst appears to have more confidence this year. His body language looks different to me. He also puts some serious zip on the ball. And he might not be as mobile as Jackson, but he’s agile enough to escape the rush too.

“I’m just saying, let’s see what would happen when you reverse the halves – it’s time for Whitehurst to play the first two quarters and Jackson to play the last two. Wouldn’t that give coach Pete Carroll a better idea of what he has with these two QBs?”
