10/31: Is the end near for Charlie Whitehurst?

The Seahawks turned to backup Charlie Whitehurst on Sunday hoping that he could manage the offense and give Tarvaris Jackson another week to rest his injured pectoral muscle.

Three series was all it took to convince Pete Carroll that Jackson, at less than 100 percent, was a better option. Whitehurst completed 4 of 7 passes for 52 yards. One of his incompletions would have been an interception had a Bengals defender made an easy catch.

Whitehurst struggled a week earlier in a loss to the Browns when he completed just 40 percent of his passes and failed to capitalize on a second-half opportunity.

“What I had seen in the Cleveland game I felt was happening somewhat in the first quarter,” Carroll told “Brock and Salk” on Monday. “Really, it didn’t take very long.”

So, where does Whitehurst stand after two straight uninspiring performances? Brock and Salk discussed that in Monday’s Wrap Up video.
