Whitehurst looks to take advantage of opportunity



RENTON, Wash. (AP) — With the Seattle Seahawks offense finally showing signs of life the last few weeks using a no-huddle offense engineered by quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, backup Charlie Whitehurst was left to practice the no-huddle on his own.

Whitehurst hadn’t had many opportunities in practice to get acclimated to the team’s new high-paced offense. His experience was limited strictly to work in the preseason and in the team’s hotel rooms on Saturday nights.

It was time well spent as Whitehurst was called upon to take the reins of the offense early in the second half against the New York Giants on Sunday.
