The Seahawks’ offense was contained and rookie quarterback Russell Wilson had a sub par debut behind center. Needless to say, the 20-16 loss starts the 2012 campaign on a bad note.
Rookie Quarterback Russel Wilson played just one quarter in his final tuneup before the regular season, so high-priced backup Matt Flynn led Seattle on three scoring drives. The Seahawks (4-0) closed out the second perfect preseason in franchise history with a 21-3 win over the Oakland Raiders (1-3) on Thursday night.
Pete Carroll and John Schneider were overjoyed during the April NFL draft when the Seattle Seahawks were able to grab Russell Wilson in the third round.
