Tarvaris Jackson is a really good backup quarterback. That is all.
What we like:
Very tough, played through injuries much of 2011
Has played most of his career under Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell
Coming off best season of his career
What we don’t like:
Locks onto receivers, doesn’t progress through reads fast enough
Pocket presence could be better
Leads receivers into big hits
Though decision making has improved, still below-average
Tarvaris Jackson has been a very pleasant surprise for Seahawks fans. His name has been associated with sub-mediocre play for his entire career, and he was much better than anyone expected this year. That said, Jackson is probably not going to be the deciding factor between present day mediocrity and a championship contender, though his age probably works to understate his remaining potential.
