It's Russell Wilson time!
It's tough to draw conclusive evidence from preseason football. Still, anyone who has followed the Seahawks' first two preseason games this year knows quarterback Russell Wilson - a rookie out of Wisconsin - has usually been the most exciting player on the field. And after another strong outing against Denver last weekend, it appears Wilson is in line to start the Hawks' third preseason game this Friday against Kansas City.

This according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Again, while it's tough to take much from preseason football, one thing is for certain: the third preseason game is typically the most important, in which a team's starters play into the third quarter. The fact that Pete Carroll is giving Wilson the nod can only be a sign that the rookie signal caller has a legitimate chance of snatching the starting gig from assumed starter Matt Flynn.

Will Wilson be able to throw dropped touchdown passes to Terrell Owens with the same skill as Flynn - against Kansas City's starters? It seems we'll find out Friday.

Note: Yes, I realize this news potentially screws the hell out of my Best of Seattle prognostication. I suppose the only good news is I didn't name Starbucks Seattle's Best Record Store.
