After it was rumored that Matt Flynn was officially named the starting quarterback for Seattle Seahawks, immediate news came up that changed everything.

Knowing what kind of head coach Pete Carroll is, he's going to give everyone a chance. According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, rookie Russell Wilson will get his first start for Seattle in their Week Three pre-season match-up versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

With Tarvaris Jackson already as the odd man out, the battle has been between Wilson and Flynn the whole time. Wilson so far hasn't been doing so bad in the pre-season, with going 22-of-33 for 279 yards with three touchdowns and only one pick. Flynn, on the other hand, has gone 17-of-26 for 102 yards and an interception.

Right now, my gut tells me that Wilson can pull this out and become the starter. I'll be rooting for the guy.

Who do you think will start?
