Dave Boling of The News Tribune preview’s tonight’s exhibition opener between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Diego Chargers with a closer look at the battle for the No. 2 quarterback job between Brady Quinn and Tarvaris Jackson.
Jackson returns to the scene of his first career start with Seattle two years ago in a preseason game at San Diego.
"The competition is at hand now, there’s no doubt, and it’s a big deal to Brady and T-Jack,” coach Pete Carroll said. “They’ve performed well in practice, they’ve handled themselves and the team very well. We’re really fortunate to have their experience … they’ve got four games to prove it and they’ll get a lot of playing time and have a great chance.”
Clare Farnsworth of Seahawks.com writes that Seattle’s young players fighting to earn a roster spot will get a good look tonight against the Chargers.
