"I've been really pleased with the way they've worked," Carroll said at the conclusion of minicamp, via The Associated Press. "They've busted their tails to get their stuff done. They've all been able to run the club and function in the huddle and make their adjustments and the calls.
"We'll stay with the same format going into camp. I don't think that will change. (Jackson) will go first and away we go, but other than that let the games begin and we'll see how it goes."
Flynn played the good soldier in comments Thursday, saying "you can only control what you do" amongst other platitudes of jockspeak.
Jackson, meanwhile, has to be thrilled with how this is playing out.
"However the coaches put us in, we just try to take advantage of every rep we get," Jackson said. "It's fine. It's great competition. It's a healthy competition. Pretty much all the guys get along in there. So however we get put it, we've just got to take advantage of every rep we get."
We suppose you can't blame Carroll for trying to find out who's the best man for the job. But if the team had such confidence in Jackson, why give Flynn all those millions? If Jackson wins this competition, the Seahawks still kind of lose, don't they?
