So, just who the heck is Charlie Whitehurst? Yeah, yeah he will be Seattle's starting quarterback Sunday, could be No. 6 on the Giants' quarterback knockout list and all that. But, really, who is this guy?
Let's start with the basics. Whitehurst is a five-year 'veteran' of the NFL. I put 'veteran' in quotes because, while this is his fifth season, Whitehurst has never played. He took a couple of snaps at the end of last week's 33-3 Seattle loss to Oakland, and his bio shows two pass attempts back with the San Diego Chargers in 2006. That's it.
