The Seattle Seahawks will have a press conference this afternoon at 2 p.m. to introduce Charlie Whitehurst to the local media. General manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll also will be available. I’ll have a report on the press conference later this afternoon.

  1. Eric,

    Please make the team clarify the roles for this year. Is Matt still the starter? And can they guarantee that they will not trade him before the season starts? Or what?

    Also, if you get a chance, can you see if Mr. Happy has spoken to Walt? I know they were scheduled to talk a few weeks ago about his future.

    Thank you.

  2. Bobby, do you really want the business side of the organization to negotiate so poorly with the rest of the NFL regarding a perceived asset?

  3. Dukeshire says:

    Well said, Bobby.

  4. Is the Hawks to Chargers 2011 pick conditional or locked in at third round?

    Are the Hawks still trying to get Brandon Marshall?

    What about Rams safety Atogwe?

  5. ERIC: “Pete, can you clarify the roles for this year. Is Matt still the starter? And can you guarantee that you will not trade him before the season starts? Or what?”

    CARROLL: “As we have said all along, we are all about competition at every position, including quarterback. Matt has been a warrior here for many years. We are full cognizant of that fact, and we are glad to have him on this team. However, you need to remember that football is a business and as such we are open to all options that will make this team better, so we cannot and will not limit ourselves moving forward. To that end, our goal is and always will be to make this team better. Next question.”

    ERIC: “Mr. Happy, Have you spoken to Walt and has he given you any indication of what his plans our for this year?”

    CARROLL: “Oh, you again. Yes, Walt and I have talked at length. As you know, Walt is also a warrior and he’s working hard in his rehab. He’s still consulting with doctors and trying to decide what is in his best interests and the best interests of his family.. We’re planning to sit down sometime to before the draft to see where he’s at and what his plans are.”

    This trade is rediculious! Way to much to give up for a scrub! Colt McCoy would have been alot better. As far as that goes Derek Anderson would have been cheaper and better long term. We need future not unproven vets. Draft, draft, draft. We basically gave up a 3rd first round pick and a future 3rd rounder for what equates to a 3rd rounder this year and a scrub qb. You are going down Carroll! Nothing you have done will make you better. I thought Ruskell was bad…

  7. pabuwal – normally, no. You’d be absolutely right. But this is a Seattle Seahawk icon. You don’t dink around with someone who has earned it (and Matt has earned it). Just my opinion.

  8. Audible – you’ve been taking comedy classes lately with some of your comments. Some are pretty funny, I must admit.

  9. Look how guys like Dave Krieg, Cortez Kennedy and Jim Zorn were let go. If the player isn’t a certain HoFer (Largent, Jones), then the team owes it to themself to get as much as possible even if they have to say something different than their intentions.
