Below is some excerpts of John Clayton and Judd Zulgad talking of Tavaris Jackson possibly being a good fit in Seattle. What ever happened to logical thinking. If Pete Carroll is so intent on getting the ground game working, which appears to be the case with all the Offensive moves during the Draft then Hasselbeck would be a perfect fit for a season or two more.
What i am guessing is a whole lot of people put stock in what a person says, well i don’t and have learned not to from experience.
Everyone makes speculation based on Darrell Bevell being in Minnesota and Jackson being there. Big mistake Seattle and so called Seahawk Analysts.
Jackson is a very unpolished QB and even more so when under pressure. Hasselbeck has experience in a successful run game and should be retained to give a rookie the opportunity to learn from a successful pro.
We all to quickly forget the contributions Hasselbeck has given to this city and we write it off at the first sign of decline. I personally believe he has 1 or 2 more good seasons left to give the Pete Carroll run game a chance. He has had no offensive line to even speak of and no blocking to keep the rush out of the backfield, so don’t blame Hasslebeck for throwing interceptions and getting sacked and hurried, blame our less than stellar Offensive line the last 2 seasons for Hasselbeck’s failures!
So i make a plea to Pete Carroll, unless you can pick up a seasoned QB to replace Matt Hasselbeck, retain him if it’s the only thing you do in this Free agency!
With the Tarvaris Jackson to Seattle Seahawks talks heating up around town, Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune joined the John Clayton Show on Saturday to discuss the latest rumors.
Free agent QB Tarvaris Jackson, formerly of the Minnesota Vikings, could be starting under center for the Seahawks this fall.
“My thoughts are this,” said Zulgad, “you would get – or Seattle would get – a quarterback who looks very good in practice, has a big-time arm and athletically is gifted.”
Zulgad reported that the free agent has been working out with Cardinals’ WR Larry Fitzgerald this offseason, and even made the trip out to Arizona to continue training.
“Tarvaris has really dedicated himself to being in shape, and coming into which ever camp he goes into in far better condition than he did last year. That being said, you’ve seen this guy play in games, I’ve seen him play in games, and as Brad Childress used to say, ‘when the bullets fly’ so to speak, Tarvaris has his issues.”
