Seahawks quarterback Tarvaris Jackson wouldn’t give himself a passing grade if he were to assess how he’s played so far this season.
“We’re a 2-5 team, and a quarterback’s [job] is to help the team win as much as possible,” Jackson told the Seattle Times. “We’ve still got a lot of work to do, but 2-5 is failing. So I guess I got an F right now.”
If Jackson gets an F, I’m not sure what grade Charlie Whitehurst would get. Jackson is 2-3 as the Seahawks’ starter this year, while Whitehurst is 0-2. And Jackson has more than 1,000 more passing yards than Whitehurst and a higher passer rating.
Jackson does allow that he seems to be making some progress.
“We’re getting better,” Jackson said. “We’re growing, and I’m feeling more and more comfortable each week. And the guys are feeling more and more comfortable in me. And the coach is gaining more trust in me. So that’s good. My whole thing is I’m always about wins.”
And in Seattle this year, wins have been hard to come by.
