Russell Wilson, fit to start vs. Panthers?

Posted: Updated:

Charlotte, NC - (WBTV)

Through Cam Newton's big rookie year, no one questioned whether or not he should be the starting quarterback for the Carolina Panthers.

Newton's success may have something to do with a new trend, as there are 5 rookie's starting under center in the NFL this season.

But unlike Cam, not everyone trusts Seattle QB Russell Wilson is the guy for the job.

The former N. C. State signal caller didn't throw a touchdown in their loss to St. Louis on Sunday, but threw 3 interceptions. Wilson also still has yet to pass for more than 200 yards in a game.

You have to wonder if we'll see backup Matt Flynn take snaps Sunday against Carolina, and some critics and fans are already asking for Flynn to replace Wilson.

Seattle head coach Pete Carroll says the 5 foot 11 Wilson will start, but also says the competition goes on as it does with every position on his football team.

Seattle will come to Charlotte Sunday as a 2-2 team, Carolina is 1-3.
