lol if the Seahawks traded up for Bradford, their move to get Whitehurst will look even more stupid
why should the hawks trade up for bradford if they already trade away some valuable picks for an unknown QB?
It makes perfect sense, here's why:
1. you have an injury-prone starter, so you need a servicable back-up
2. the worst thing you can do to a rookie QB is force him to start before he's ready
3. So, SEA can use Whitehurst as a backup to Hasselbeck until Bradford is ready to take over. Bradford can hold a clipboard for a full year and learn a pro-style offense.
4. Bradford takes over/competes with Whitehurst for the job in 2011.
