Will Hasselbeck Or Whitehurst Start Against Saints?
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll isn’t ready to name his strating quarterback for Saturday’s playoff game, against the New Orleans Saints. Kevin Spain, of the Times-Picayune, has the story, below.

But a highlight for Seattle was a good performance from quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, who was 32-of-44 for 366 yards and a touchdown.
Hasselbeck didn’t play last week against the St. Louis Rams in the 16-6 win that propelled the Seahawks to the playoffs because he had suffered a hip injury in a Week 16 game against Tampa Bay after scoring a touchdown in the first quarter.
