Seahawks QB Battle Expected To Go Down To The Wire

We saw a resolution to the QB battle in Carolina today as Baker Mayfield was announced the teams starter over incumbent Sam Darnold, but heading out West, there doesn't seem to be an announcement on the horizon for Pete Carrol's QB in 2022, as Drew Lock and Geno Smith are battling it out to be the replacement for Russell Wilson. Both men have performed quite well so far in training camp, and according to Carrol, he will talk to it about the media later in the week... or he won't.

With the season over two weeks away still, there's plenty of time to make a decision, and in recent times, Geno Smith has been getting the majority of reps with the starters, but as the teams returned after Week 2 of the pre-season, it was Lock's turn to get the work in with his starters. 

"I'm going to take the time it takes to figure it out and make sure we have all the information that we need," he said. "I can't wait to see what happens in this game. Geno's done a good job and Geno needs a little more help from some guys—they got to be able to catch the football a little better -- but he's handled it well. You go back, Drew has had three drives and had two touchdown drives, so he's put some stuff on the resume out there. So we'll see what happens this week. And we do have really good weeks of practice coming up. This week is a great one, next week is a great one and the one after is a great one so we'll use all of that if we need it."

The Seahawks welcome former QB Russell Wilson and the Broncos to town on September the 12th, and by the looks of it, there isn't a resolution in sight, unless one of these QB's can step up and take it, we may not know until the days leading up to a very important homecoming for this franchise's only Super Bowl winning QB.
