Russell Wilson Wins Seahawks Starting Job After Chiefs Game

The Seattle Seahawks played the KC Chiefs on Friday and as many expected Russell Wilson won the Seahawks starting job with his 13-of-19 for 185 yards and two touchdown performance against the Kansas City Chiefs. Yes, the Chiefs defense was beat up so bad the Seahawks had no choice but to name Wilson the starter. He looked too good.

Wilson's starting nod wasn't the only roster move the Seahawks made after the Chiefs game.

Over the weekend the Seahawks cut Terrell Owens, who had two receptions -- one for 40 yards and one for 1 yard -- against the Chiefs. His 40-yard catch was actually extremely impressive but ultimately it didn't matter. Braylon Edwards outplayed him throughout camp so T.O. gets the pink slip.

The Seahawks also traded Tarvaris Jackson to the Buffalo Bills. Our old pal Chan Gailey is up to something. Jackson was the odd man out in a three-way quarterback competition so people knew he wasn't likely to last in Seattle. That means the Bills probably didn't give up anything more than a late round draft pick.

For another Chiefs connection, check out the depth chart where Jackson is headed -- Vince Young and our even older pal Tyler Thigpen are on the roster. Jackson's trade probably means those two are in trouble.

That's it for today's news that sorta/kinda involves the Chiefs.
