Why Seattle's QB Competition is Really, Truly, Honestly, Completely Open

The WR competition is the hot topic now, but the QB competition has led the way for most of the off-season, and is kind of flaring up in an ugly way here and there with Tarvaris getting first-team snaps. Brandon Adams removes some assumptions and gives a level-headed assessment on all three quarterbacks that I mostly agree with. The only typical exception being the discussion of Wilson-and-Badgers-OL, which is a point I view differently than most people (see comments to article for my views). Anyway. Read it. The QB competition is lasting on, and even from a media perspective there doesn't seem to be a clear front-runner. Plenty of people have their personal favorites but even most of them won't claim one QB has been "absolutely" better. As that situation endures, well, as Adams puts it: "I hate to be the one to say this, but we should brace for the possibility that Seattle has not significantly improved its QB situation for 2012 at all." I don't think the QB competition as we've run it is an inherently wrong process, I am a little worried about the results it may be coughing up. The whole point of the competition is to drive one or multiple competitors to greater heights. No sign of that working out so far, though we won't really find out in any meaningful way until the pre-season games. What about you, FGers? How would you like Tarvaris Jackson being the week 1 starter? How has the competition affected your optimism for the coming season? :lights a cigar:
