Get up close with Seahawk players as they battle to make the team.

It has to be the best kept secret and the most asked question to Seahawks' head coach Pete Carroll during training camp:

Who will be the starting quarterback?

Carroll has four talented quarterbacks to choose from, including Josh Portis, Russell Wilson, Tarvaris Jackson and Matt Flynn. Portis is likely the odd man out, since he has not seen equal playing time during the 3rd down and two minute drills.

As for the other three, Flynn looks to be the sharpest, but Jackson's speed and experience place him as the favorite to start. Wilson, the third round draft pick from Wisconsin will likely sit and continue to learn.

But only Carroll and a handful of coaches know the official plan.

"Preseason is very important to us," said Carroll during Saturday's media briefing. "It is absolutely going to add to the assessment and the evaluation," as it relates to seeing the quarterbacks in games before he will decided the starting role.

Carroll is also getting asked every day by fans at the following the teams workout. Hawk fans are nosy and want to know. When Carroll was asked why not start Flynn, he replied " you will just have to come back and watch their progress." The same reply was for Wilson and Jackson.

This weekend's training camp is completely full leaving just August 7, 8, 9, 14, 15 open. So far training camp has drew around 2,000 fans each camp. They come from all over the Pacific Northwest, including Alaska and Canada.

The Seahawks open their 2012 preseason with a home game against former UW QB Jake Locker and former Hawks QB Matt Hasselback and the Tennessee Titans on August 11 at 7 p.m. at CenturyLink Field.
