Clare Farnsworth of Seahawks.com talks to Seattle general manager John Schneider about the quarterback position as the team prepares for the NFL Scouting Combine next week.
And even with all the of the speculation swirling about the possibility of the Seahawks going after players like Peyton Manning and Matt Flynn, Schneider once again rolls out the team’s mantra, talking about how it’s important not to panic at the quarterback position.
“That may disappoint fans, because they want to see an instant guy and have that instant success,” Schneider said. “But really, you’re better off continuing to build your team. Initially when I got here, I thought we were going to plug the quarterback in and we were going built around him.
“If we had done that, we would have panicked in a way. And I’m not sure we would have been able to host the Saints (in the 2010 wild-card playoff game) and had that great atmosphere and all that.”
Pete Prisco of CBS Sports believes that quarterback Matt Flynn would be the best fit for Seattle.
ESPN’s Todd McShay believes North Carolina defensive end Quinton Coples could fall to the Seahawks.
Wes Bunting of the National Football Post lists Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler and Washington running back Chris Polk among a list of players that need a big week at the combine.
