.....Russell Wilson is playing too well not to give him the job. Flynn has not been anything special this postseason. Wilson has impressed and the locker room really seems to take to him. I definitely think this is the best rookie QB who is ready to start not named Luck or Griffin this year. So Seahawks do the best thing and give Wilson the reigns.

Yeah, Russell is looking good, enjoyed watching him play for the Badgers. I like Matt Flynn but not a Mr. Personality type guy. I can see where Wilson would command more of a presence with the players/lockerroom. The height thing alone gives Wilson an edge, he's had to listen to that, plus tried to play 2 sports at NC, which didn't fly real well with that school.
He transferred to Wisconsin.

And Matt Flynn was only offered a job because of one performance as a Packer last season so I figured that was a mistake anyway

Actually he played well the previous season, too against the Patriots when Rodgers was out with a concussion.

The Packers should try and get Flynn back. They have no one worth a chit to replace an injured Rogers.

Maybe he is not as good as everyone thinks he is and only did well as a backup because it was no pressure on him to perform. So once Seattle expected him to be their franchise QB he couldn't perform which is why he will be on the sidelines

I think seattle overreacted since they offered him a contract based on 2 or 3 games
