CBS Sports reports that Charlie Whitehurst seems to think he’s going to be the starter this season at QB for the Seahawks, partially due to the fact he’s the only “actually signed quarterback” on the current Hawks roster.
Thanks to the lockout, there are still a number of teams with unsolved quarterback situations. The Seattle Seahawks, who have Charlie Whitehurst as their only “actually signed quarterback,” are one of those teams. But fear not, Seahawk nation — the bearded one believes he can be the guy to lead Seattle back to the promised land. Or, at least he thinks he win the starting job anyway.
“Well, luckily I’m not going through the free-agent stuff like some guys are going through,” Whitehurst told The Seattle Times’ Danny O’Neil in a recent Q&A. “I know I’m the only quarterback that’s on the roster right now, and I’m sure that will change eventually when we get it figured. I look at it like I’m going to get the chance to be the starter, and I think I can do it. “That’s what I plan to do. Whenever we figure it out, I’ll compete as hard as I can to make that happen.”
