Last week following a 33-17 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, Tarvaris Jackson came out ahead with a 57% positive approval rating. This week, the Seahawks were quite unfortunately shut out by the Steelers on the road. Tarvaris, at the least, didn't turn the ball over, posting a final line of 20-for-29, 159 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT, 5 sacks. The positive? No turnovers and a 68% completion percentage. The negative? No scoring and a 5.4 ypa. The line definitely played better
this week, for what that's worth.
Finally, Pete Carroll has already declared his support for Tarvaris by stating that he believes the quarterback is not the problem. Do you agree? How has week two impacted your opinion on Tarvaris?
(Side note: many have argued that the course thus far is appropriate given the lack of clear opportunity to either draft or acquire a quarterback for a reasonable cost. While he only represents one example among several options passed over by the regime, many readers of this blog decried the possibility of our potentially selecting Andy Dalton. Just for reference, Dalton's line through his first two games: 37-for-56 (66%), 413 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INTs)
