Russell Wilson named Seattle Week 1 starter
Pete Carroll just announced it on The Seahawks twitter account.
"Russell Wilson will start against the Raiders and will start the first week of the regular season."
"Russell has shown nothing but that he is a quarterback. He is so prepared, he does not seem like a first year quarterback."
"This is an extraordinary kid. He just kept knocking us out with what he brought."
"(His height) is not even a factor. What is a factor is that he is so elusive and shows great sense."
"I've watched our team respond to him and they've taken to his leadership style."
