06:30 AM ET 06.19 | Chances are looking good that the Seahawks may have two new quarterbacks by the time camp opens. They tried to re-sign Matt Hasselbeck before the lockout started and couldn't come to terms. Now they may move on if they can find a better alternative (hello, Kevin Kolb) as a starter. And it would almost be an upset if the Seahawks didn't sign Matt Leinart to come in as a backup. The Seahawks might not be crazy about what they have seen of Leinart on tape, but coach Pete Carroll has won a lot of games with him, and he thinks he can win some more.

You would think that with so many ex USC QB's, Palmer, Leinert, Sanchez, Cassel, on NFL rosters that one of them would have made it to the Super Bowl as a starter. Next year you can add Matt Barkley to that list.

Couldn't come to Terms?

Leinert should take what ever they give him... Considering he got a Freebie from Arizona...

What is your point??? There are a hell of alot of ex college (not only USC) QB's that never made it to a super bowl.

Yea we get it. Every player could go to every team..blah, blah blah. This is really becoming annoying.

All this is laying the groundwork for the return of the Rams to NFC West supremacy.

Hell - someone has to win the division.

And you don't even have to have a winning record.

Pete Carroll and Leinart could reminisce about the 2004 championship they just vacated.

Did any one ever think that the desirable Quarterbacks dominating the discussion this year would be Palmer, Kolb, Leinart,and Hasselbeck not Brady, Brees, Manning, etc?

Isn't that Leinerts' method? Take the money, goof off at practice, then when he gets thrown out there for the real deal, act like a deer caught in the headlights.
