SEATTLE - Just days after being named the Seattle Seahawks starting quarterback,
rookie Russell Wilson was the last guy out of the tunnel — greeted by the
loudest cheers during the pregame pomp and circumstance. Womens Julio Jones Jersey . Even though hes
now the starter nothing felt different to Wilson. Maybe thats because for the
last 50 games that have counted, Wilson has known hes the starting quarterback.
Its a streak that will continue when the Seahawks begin the regular season next
week. “I wouldnt say I had a different feeling. ... The feel of the game, no,
not any different. Just the reps were different,” Wilson said. Wilson played
just one quarter in his final tuneup before the regular season, so high-priced
backup Matt Flynn led Seattle on three scoring drives. The Seahawks (4-0) closed
out the second perfect preseason in franchise history with a 21-3 win over the
Oakland Raiders (1-3) on Thursday night. Wilson saw limited action just days
after winning the quarterback competition and being chosen the regular-season
starter. He is one of five rookies expected to start for NFL teams when the
season begins next week. Flynn played most of the second and third quarters and
led Seattle to two touchdowns. That was more than the Seahawks needed thanks to
a stingy defence that continued to impress. “We have a very good quarterback
situation right now,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “Im very happy about it.”
Wilson played the first quarter and probably would have added yet another
touchdown to his preseason total. But Vai Taua dropped a pass in the flat inside
the 5 with a clear path to the end zone. Wilson finished 5 of 11 for 73 yards,
his least productive appearance of the exhibition season. Flynn, who sat out
last weeks game at Kansas City with a sore elbow, threw a 4-yard TD pass to
tight end Cooper Helfet in the third quarter, and he finished 11 of 13 for 102
yards and a quarterback rating of 125.0. “I thought he was solid as a rock. He
hit almost everything. He handled all of the situations, all of the calls. He
was comfortable,” Carroll said. “He hasnt had a chance to throw a lot coming
back. I thought he was very much in control.” What Seattles quarterback duo did
was ultimately moot compared to a defence that continued to impress. Seattles
starting defence allowed just 17 points during the preseason. It wasnt just the
starting defence that was dominant for Seattle. The reserves were pretty good
too, as the Raiders were held to 101 yards total offence and five first downs.
Seattle first-round draft pick Bruce Irvin had 1 1-2 sacks and a forced fumble,
and fellow rookie Jaye Howard tackled running back Mike Goodson in the end zone
for a safety in the fourth quarter. “It felt like I had a new born baby,” Irvin
said of his first sack. “I felt good. I finally got a chance to break the ice
and get going there.” Eddy Carmonas 31-yard field goal with 15 seconds left kept
the Raiders from being shut out for the second time this preseason. Oakland
opens the regular season on Sept. 10 hosting San Diego. “We have all started
thinking about the San Diego Chargers,” Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer said.
“I have already started watching film on them. That was our main objective, you
want to get a win but to get out of this game healthy and be ready to roll for
Week 1.” The last time Seattle went undefeated in the preseason was 2009. That
season ended with the Seahawks going 5-11, losing their last four games, and
then coach Jim Mora got unceremoniously fired. With Wilson seeing limited time,
it was Flynns turn to get the bulk of the work and make up for missing last
weeks game at Kansas City with a sore elbow. Flynn led Seattle on two
second-quarter scoring drives, once taking advantage of an Oakland turnover and
on the other leading Seattle 78 yards — mostly on the legs of Taua and
Kregg Lumpkin. The 11-play drive was capped by Taua plowing in from the 2 for a
13-0 halftime lead. Taua suffered a knee strain in the second half and Seattle
was so limited with running backs that wide receiver Jermaine Kearse ended up
having to carry the ball three times for 9 yards. Taua wasnt the only injury
worry for Seattle. Receiver Golden Tate danced backward on a punt return and was
tackled awkwardly. He was limping on the sideline and shaking his right leg
while being looked at by team physicians. Running back Leon Washington did not
play after getting poked in the eye during practice this week. Palmer saw six
snaps and handed off all of them, including two third-down running plays.
Darren McFadden never saw the field. With Palmer getting a short stint,
Matt Leinart played the remainder of the first half and was unimpressive.
Leinart was 3 of 11 for 14 yards with an interception and a passer rating of
1.7. Terrelle Pryor played the entire second half for Oakland and was 6 of 9 for
55 yards, but was sacked twice and was forced to scramble out of trouble plenty
of other times. “We were not good enough. We got overmatched, upfront on both
sides of the ball,” Oakland coach Dennis Allen said. “I think defensively we got
worn down. But effort wasnt to our standard upfront.” __ Online:

everywhere these days.OAKLAND, Calif. —Major League Baseball has denied the
Los Angeles Angels protest of their extra-inning loss at the Chicago White Sox
last week, although it still hasnt convinced manager Mike Scioscia the call was
correct. On the play Friday night, Chicagos Paul Konerko grounded to third with
the bases loaded and no outs in the first inning. After getting an out at home,
catcher Chris Iannetta fired wide to first, pulling Albert Pujols off the bag.
Scioscia argued that Konerko was not within the baseline for the last 45 feet,
as is required. The umpires upheld the safe call and Scioscia played the game
under protest. A.J. Pierzynski hit a three-run homer with two outs for a 4-1
lead. The White Sox wound up winning 8-6 in 10 innings. Speaking before the
Angels opened a three-game series at Oakland on Monday night, Scioscia said he
accepts the decision by MLB executive vice-president Joe Torre announced earlier
in the day. He just doesnt agree with the decision. “The league gave weight to
the fact of still having judgment of umpires being part of the play.” Scioscia
said. “I see some of the things theyre saying, but I also feel strongly in the
stances that we took on it. If theres aa trash can in the middle of the lane and
youre driving and you veer off into a ditch and crash your car, the insurance
company is going to say, Well, the trash can was in the middle of the road. Black Julio Jones Jersey. . But were not
going to pay because youre the one who veered off the road. “I think its the
same thing,” Scioscia continued. “In my opinion, theres no way from a fixed
point of home plate to first base in a lane that a catcher has to throw a ball
at a runner whos a solid 3 feet inside the lane on the grass can possibly not
impair the ability of a catcher to make that throw. Its just physically
impossible to say that it does not impair that. But, still, the judgment of the
umpires is the second part of the equation and well live with that.” Scioscia
said he hadnt talked with Torre about the decision and had no plans to do so. He
also said he has never won a postgame protest as a manager. “You never know what
theyre going to do, but we wouldnt have appealed it, we wouldnt have protested
it, if we felt there was (not) some solid ground,” Scioscia said. “This wasnt
frivolous. This was certainly something that needed to be looked at, and the
leagued looked at it.” ’ ’ ’
