Seahawks G.M. John Schneider joined PFT Live Monday for an interesting segment on all things Seahawks.
He discussed the team’s decision to make Tarvaris Jackson the starting quarterback right away. Schneider also addressed his strong criticism of how the Vikings handled Jackson, which made news last week.
“Yeah, that was kind of a cavalier moment there,” Schneider told Florio. “What I was trying to say was that I understand what Tarvaris had been through and being in Green Bay and seeing what Aaron went through, to a lesser degree with Brett. . . . And early on playing, you know, he was pulled right away … So yeah, it’s definitely a comment I’d like to have back – that’s one you put in your back pocket.”
Schneider joked the comment may have partly come from sleep deprivation during a long week. He has since apologized privately to the Vikings.
