Seahawks | Pete Carroll OK with Matt Flynn as backup

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said he is not concerned that QB Matt Flynn is the backup after signing a lucrative contract in the offseason. "I don't want that to matter to me," Carroll said. "We understand there is a thought about that ... if a guy gets paid more and he's playing backup, he better be a pretty good backup. He better play well and better perform well, so I don't think any fan out there would want me to make a decision based on how much a guy is getting paid. You want the best guy at that time to play for us and that's exactly how I see it. We are going to keep standing up for that. I'm not trying to make any statements. That's just the facts."
